Prog Reviewer
2 stars I have to agree with the band members on this one and say that it shouldn't have been released when it was, if ever. The group was still trying to establish a foothold here in the US with their studio efforts and this did nothing to further their popularity. It simply doesn't sound good at all and, without the visuals of Peter Gabriel, it's just an inferior rehash of what they had already put out on vinyl. I have tried many, many times to listen to this with an open mind but it doesn't work on any level for me. The guitars and keyboards are harsh and brittle on almost every song and the performances just don't impress me much. Now "Seconds Out," THAT'S what a live album should sound like! I much prefer the recordings on Archives I, as well. Get this one if you just have to have their complete catalogue of work. It's a disappointment, otherwise.
