GIANT AT THEIR BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!
R. Recchia | blodgett mills, ny | 10/19/2001

"This is one hell of a live album! Gentle Giant were at their peak around the time of this album. The performances are nearly
flawless. Man, these guys could play!! Every song has at least one or two or three things to
recommend about it, but the highlight of this cd is KNOTS AND
THE ADVENT OF PANURGE. Gary Green and Ray Shulman's acoustic
guitar duet is amazing!!
There are also some very impressive vocal rounds on this, along
with a section where 3 or 4 of them play recorders. There is a
very medieval feel to this song! The version of RUNAWAY is much better than the studio version.This song is heavy in a very YES-like way.Also quite en-
joyable is the five man percussion jam on SO SINCERE. Unlike
some of the other prog rock bands, GENTLE GIANT were actually at
their best when they were showing off.I strongly recommend this album; as a
matter of fact, I think it's better than any of their studio
albums!!! A MUST HAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Stark live performance

"This is a release of a radio concert done during the Power and the Glory tour. This is a good live performance, but not Gentle Giant's best. On the studio albums, thier sound is usually lush and complex with many over lapping sounds. They used to play that way in concert.On this album, they have a stripped down sound. It is more straight ahead rock than previous performances. There are some small sections with violin and sax, but this is mostly guitar oriented. The music is played in a sharp staccato manor. I wouldn't really call it manic like others have. It doesn't have that raw energy. The vocals are also coarse and abrupt. The album is only 47 minutes long and just a partial concert. Because of the short length and the stripped down sound, it just feels as if something is missing.This is not a bad performance, I just prefer some of the earlier ones. The best live album by Gentle Giant is the first CD from the two CD set called Out of the Woods. Unfortunately, it is only 35 minutes, and the second CD is really bad."
