5 stars (This is the end of my review, please find the opening part on the Babylon - Night Over Never page if you're interested)

A propos! Another thing that should not be forgotten! (Before shaming the Live At The Empty Keg dilogy for bad sound quality.) The band released only one studio album. It contains 4 tracks. All the four were played live and are included in the Empty Keg dilogy. Apart from them, there are SIX more tracks here, never recorded in studio and available only in live versions: You Are Sentenced To Life On Earth, Ultima Thule (on Night Over Never), St. Vitus Dance, Spin, Foam Rubber Philosopher and Forest Of Orelse (on Better Conditions For The Dead). None of the six is available anywhere else. And their total running time is almost 46 minutes, in other words, if recorded in studio they would stuff another full length album. And, what is more, all the six are really great musically. I encourage the audience again to forget about the bad sound as much as possible, and enjoy the amazing music.
