I've never been a massive fan of live albums as they tend to be either a cheap stop gap or just another way for bands to exploit their fans loyalty.
However, I always find Magnum's live albums to be good value and highly entertaining. The live versions of Magnum songs always sound harder and meatier than their studio counterparts and with a track list such as this, 'The Spirit' also works as something as a best of.
Other bands could only ever dream of having the number of crowd pleasers that Magnum seem to cram into a live set.
With such big, live staples such as 'Kingdom of Madness', 'The Spirit', 'Sacred Hour', 'How Far Jerusalem', 'On a Storytellers Night', 'Les Morts Dansant', 'Vigilante' and 'Rocking Chair' you just can't go wrong really.
