I went to the Birmingham show, which features on this live CD, and I have to say that I was looking forward to this gig more than the 'Storyteller's Night' shows the band did a few years ago.

As for the show, I felt that the first set was a bit too predictable. It's always great to hear the band play 'Vigilante', 'Kingdom Of Madness' and 'How Far Jerusalem' etc, but they seem to play these songs on just about every tour these days. I would have loved to have heard them play 'Back To Earth', 'The Prize', 'Lonely Night' and 'Stormy Weather' for a change, especially considering these live dates were supposed to be special.
The second set comprised of 'The Wings Of Heaven' album in it's entirety and was a joy to behold. The band played those particular songs with a harder, darker edge, not to be heard on the original recordings. 'Wild Swan' and 'Don't Wake The Lion' were particularly outstanding.
The individual performances on the night were spot on. Bob Catley gave it everything on vocals and Tony Clarkin's guitarwork seems to get better and better. The rhythm section of Al Barrow and Jimy Copley on bass and drums respectively has to be the heaviest and most technically proficient the band has ever had, and Mark Stanway's keyboards gave the whole sound a bit of class.
The venue was packed to the rafters, and the atmosphere was electric. Worth noting was Bob Catley's clear heartbreak when speaking of the plight of original Magnum drummer Kex Gorin, who sadly died recently.
I have to say I'm looking forward to how this live album is going to turn out (as of writing this, it hasn't been released yet) and if the beefy sound on the night transfers to disc effectively.
It was a top gig and a great night, despite the smell of wee.
Now, all Magnum have to do is play the 'Chase The Dragon' and 'Vigilante' albums in their entirety live and we can all die happy.

Over the years Magnum have released a lot of live albums probably because this is where the band are in their element. This eagerly anticipated double CD (I was at the Glasgow Garage in November when they were recording the tour) delivers BIG STYLE. Although the main focus of the set list is the complete Wings Of Heaven album the first CD with 4 songs from Princess Alice (their best studio album for many years) plus classic tracks such as All England's Eyes and Vigilante the album rocks from start to finish. Bob Catley's vocals are as strong as ever and Tony Clarkin and the rest of the band produce a superb display of musicianship as they always do. It's a travesty that Magnum didn't make the "big time" list of rock bands but like Thunder if they keep playing we'll keep going - it was a privilage to be at the Glasgow gig and this release captures the raw power of Magnum at their peak. Has to be 5 stars and PLAY IT LOUD !!!!!!!!!

I like many have followed this band for many years and yes there has been some dissapointing albums, - BUT NOT THIS LIVE OFFERING!!! Its does nearly capture a true magnum concert, its raw and as it should be heard. The early 90s THE SPIRIT LIVE ALBUM was a great overworking on production and therefore lost the adge of a concert. If you remmember the wings of heaven album and enjoyed it, it was nice to hear different worlds live! and the awesome DONT WAKE THE LION , ok as you can see cd2 is gonna be favoured by most, HOWEVER you can here the new classics on disc1 mixed with some old tunes too. I think i agree with another reviewer it would be nice to make way for some other songs from the back catalogue, just for a change. maybe do the b sides of the singles and vigilante album!!

anyway, all in all - you wont be dissapointed,

Magnum came to the wider public's attention on the release of the studio album 'Wings Of Heaven' (do you remember them on TOTP?). When I first heard that the plan was to play the whole record live and release it I was mega chuffed. The boys from Birmingham don't disappoint.

CD1 is a mix of old and new tracks. I felt the opener was a tad lacklustre but 'Back Street Kid' and 'Kingdom of Madness' stand out for me. The band do sound really good, a lot tighter and the production is top class as with most 'live' albums these days. I do like the way how Magnum have made the 'older' material sound fresh, as they have been doing for some time now.

CD2 is the 'Wings of Heaven' album from start to finish, plus Sacred Hour. The whole record goes into overdrive!! Catley and Clarkin do get better with age!! 'Wild Swan' is amazing but 'Don't Wake The Lion' is mind blowing. I thought 'Must Have Been Love' and 'Different Worlds' would not translate as well on the live stage but I was wrong!! 'Pray For Day' nice and heavy :)

I saw Magnum when they toured 'WOH' originally and they were good then, they sound even better now!!

This is highly recommended for fans of melodic rock. A great purchase from one of Britain's unsung bands who deserved more. When you hear this album you'll understand why!!

Let me add one last thing... get a good set of headphones, lock all the doors and play 'Don't Wake The Lion'. In my book, one of the greatest songs written. Enjoy!!!

Went to 3 of these live recordings and they are just fantastic, the new tracks are brilliant live and the Wings of heaven performance in the second half of the concert was just amazing. Bob`s voice is as good as it was at the Manchester Apollo 20 years ago and Tony`s guitar work was superb as usuall. Get this CD in its first week of release and lets get them back in the charts where they belong.
