This album does have a lot of pluses. The set list is impressive and contains many of the band's best tracks from the 1980s, as well as classic solo pieces like Acid Bird and I often dream of trains. Since it was recorded in Athens, home of R.E.M., there is the presence of guitarist Peter Buck. Hitchcock's between song banter is sometimes amusingly off-the-wall. The two extra tracks, a piss take of Dylan and a straight rendition of The Crystal Ship, are worth a listen. And the overall sound isn't bad at all. My main reason for only giving the album two stars is, unfortunately, Robyn Hitchcock's voice. I think he must have been having a very bad day. Sometimes it's okay, is about the best I can say. Sometimes it's positively excrutiating, though. It's not as though he's no good live, but anyone wanting to hear him and the Egyptians at their best would be better advised to try Gotta Let This Hen Out, and leave this alone. It's a shame, as, potentially, it was a great album.
