5 stars What can I say about this otherworldly fantastic live album? Not much other than it is one of the best live albums I have ever heard. Live In Japan is certainly put to complete shame by this - this is up there with Yessongs and Seconds Out.

What you get here is one of the best bands of all time, touring in support of a fantastic new album (Heavy Horses) and at a time in their career when they had just released a long series of very good albums, performing a very powerful set consisting of some of their very best material ever. All this is presented in good sound quality and the end result is simply stunning.

The set list is almost exactly as it would be if I had chosen it! And the performances bring something new compared to the originals. I will not comment on the music itself since most people know these songs, and if you don't see the reviews of the studio albums.

I would want to say that this is a perfect introduction to Jethro Tull. It shows all their different sides; Hard Rock, Folk, Jazz, Blues, Classical etc. something you will not get if you start with one of their studio albums. But you will want those as well after you have heard this!

I realize that this is one of my worst reviews ever. But I cannot come up with anything to criticise. This album reminds me why I love this band so much.

A masterpiece and one of the best live albums of all time, possibly the best.
