For anyone who was lucky enough to witness this explosive Mexican guitar duo on their recent UK tour, this new live album is a must have souvenir. Rodrigo & Gabriela are the Jack 'n' Meg of acoustic, flamenco fiery fretwork. Occupying the freshly discovered gap in the world music kasbah between Paco Di Lucia and James Hetfield. This album was recorded at concerts in Manchester and Dublin (where the duo are based). Any fan of beautifully played acoustic guitar works will find much to enjoy here. The performances are dazzling, but never turn into a creative cul de sac of self indulgent showing off for the sake of it. This is warm blooded and latin, like a good Rioja. You get two versions of what is emerging as their theme tune, a sensitive re - imagining of Metallica's anti - war epic "One". However, as this also appeared on their debut album "Re - foc", this is three versions in the space of two albums; so I'm docking one star for recycling material. Overall, if you are looking for a fresh axe to worship post - McLaughlin, Satriani or Williams, or if you just want to be transported to sunnier locations on these long winter evenings; you could do a lot worse than starting here.

This is one of Rodrigo and Gabriela's early live albums and their metal roots are evident throughout, but with their own unique flamenco twist. This was recorded in Manchester and Dublin and has tracks from Re-Foc on it, as well as an excellent interpretation of Metallic's `One'. At one point this is blended with Brubeck's `Take Five' to delightful effect. This live album shows all the flair and passion in their playing and the part at the very end where Gabriela talks to the audience about her experiences in Ireland is especially endearing. If you enjoy their albums and want to sample their sound whilst playing live then this is a pretty good place to go, but be aware there is also an excellent `Live in Japan' disc to enjoy at some point as well.

Having bought their eponymous album, I had high hopes of this album. It is certainly not bad, but does not, for me at least, quite capture the excitment that I felt listening to 'Rodrigo y Gabriella' or watching them live (although to be fair it is questionable whether any live album can truly do that). The repetition of 'One' seems unnecessary, and I agree with the reviewer who found the time devoted to Gabriella's chat to the audience a pointless addition. Left me feeling that this was a lost opportunity to really showcase two great musicians and their equally impressive music.

You will be reading this review because you have heard the guitar music played by these two young Mexicans and - hopefully - you have been stunned by their talent.

So this live CD should capture all the excitement of them playing in front of an audience - and most of the time it does, but unfortunately the production approach is appalling.

Track 1 begins with a full-blooded and stunning instrumental.

Track 2 is 39 seconds of Gabriella whittering on and giggling. This is fine an a DVD, but adds nothing to a CD. Especially after such a stunning start.

Track 3 is them playing guitar again - very mellow and jazzy at first and then on into a superb arrangement of 'Take 5'

Track 4 is a wonderful example of their percussive style. Mind-blowing.

Tracks 5-7 take you through a good range of lively and brilliant instrumentals .... but then you come to the final track. ('One')

Track 8 and the music is wonderful, but after 5m 5s it ends and then there is a totally unecessary silence for SIXTY SECONDS. After that Gabriella returns for an unbelievably self-indulgent whitter about when they arrived in Ireland and felt cold. This goes on and on and on and on and isn't even followed by any more music. You can't even edit it out with your track selector because it is part of the track 8.

APPALLING and is the main reason for docking 2 stars.

The CD cover also says there bonus PC/Mac footage of a performance, but I can find nothing that plays.

Such a shame. My advice is to buy the other two CD's of theirs - and if you can get the one with the bonus DVD, you'll be really happy, even though it still contains that boring whitter about being chilly in Ireland.
