5 stars IQ's epic 100 minute double album Subterranea was already one of their major accomplishments, and one of the things which is impressive about it is how they were able to perform the entire monster live on the supporting tour. Whilst they don't radically retool anything, there's an overall harder and heavier approach to the material here, and a few sonic differences here and there, but by and large they're able to deliver a musical experience largely reminiscent of the studio album.

What changes have been made suggest that they aren't content to merely let the compositions sit, but are always thinking of ways to add different flourishes and touches here and there, so there's enough variation that the live album is worth it if you enjoyed the studio album, and it's difficult not to be impressed by the band's ability to pull the whole package off live.

Warthur | 5/5 |
