If ever there was proof that Genesis lost their way with the departure of Steve Hackett this album is it. A mix of original Genesis tracks, with subsequent compositions by Steve Hackett plus offerings from Ian MacDonald and John Wetton make this a great album. Furthermore, for a live album its largely flawless (although a couple of the distorted vocals don't quite come off -hence only four stars). Five superb musicians displaying their art to the max!
Compare this with Genesis' Archive #2 and you can see where they went wrong and what is missing from that box set. Power to your elbow, Steve Hackett!

This album holds all the classic tunes I like to hear from Steve Hackett
In my opinion by far his best live album
A great choice of tunes from a wide span of Steve Hackett albums plus a couple of very cool covers
"heat of the moment" by Asia and the old King Crimson tune "the court of the crimson king"
Only drawback (if any) I rather would have preferred a couple of more live classics in the end of disc two in stead of the studio tracks
Essential album for proglovers, and a perfect entry to Steve Hackett for those who have not been introduced to this artist
