I'm not normally keen on live albums as I prefer to see bands "in person", but... this one is totally kicking! It's playing on my stereo as type, still on the first listen through but I felt compelled to write something down about it.
From the opening bars of "What else is there?" you know you're in for a good time. This album brings together some of the most upbeat songs from both studio albums, gives them a load more bass and a seriously richer sound. Tie that in with some stunning lyrics, beautiful voices and a bit of cheering in between tracks and you've got a winner. Plus of course add in the odd bit of funky mixing, some additional words and a whole bunch of atmosphere, you're not going to want to stay seated for long! In fact, I'm off to jig about a bit myself :)

Royksopp do it again...from the opening strains of 'What else is there?' you know you are in for a treat...I must at this point give a great thumbs up to the production values on this ep, it sounds magnificent all the way through...bouncing straight into 'Only this moment' with renewed vitality. As the EP progresses you feel all the atmosphere of the dance floor that you actually feel in person at the concert..spot on!
By the time the ep reaches 'Alpha Male' and 'Go with the flow' the temperature has risen, your feet are moving faster and the sweat of excitement is oozing through your musical pores..phew!
Buy this EP...if you haven't seen them live, you don't know what you are missing!
