Pretty ok, but look back in time for better days!
on 29 August 2014
I cannot for my life see how one can miss the fact that this is not a Foxx-era disc. :-) The sleeve says "1981", and the mustachioed guy on the cover most certainly looks like Midge. Oh yes, and there's no exclamation mark in the band's name. Leaving that aside, we know we have plenty of other live albums from around this time to choose from, counting also the fresh "Return to Eden". I think I prefer the mostly live 2nd disc of the remastered "Rage in Eden" cd from 2013. The year 1981 is where the band really began sliding in terms of musical quality and suspense, as evidenced by the horrible single b-sides to the 1981 studio album. After this, I am sorry to say that there was no turning back to the good old days. I saw their European tour in 2010, which took them all the way to my little native village of Vreta kloster in Sweden. Midge is now bald and fat, but he can still play guitar and sing as well (well ... ) as ever!
