Much of the criticism that many reviewers have directed at this CD concerns the sound quality. They have a point: the mix and overall sound levels are not very good, serving to highlight the shortcomings in Jim's ageing voice, whilst subduing the decent performances from the rest of the band members.

That said, the energy from the performance still comes across well, and sometimes that's what a live performance is all about. Not all live concert CDs can be as brilliant as Live in the City of Light, but this one still manages to showcase an epic band having a lot of fun in front of an enthusiastic audience.

I was at this concert, and it was hugely memorable (and somewhat nostalgic). In my view, the band played an almost perfect set-list, loaded with songs from their 'glory days', and you can tell they were enjoying themselves. For me, then, this CD is a worthwhile purchase, as a memento of a great night.

As a long time fan and having attended the show I was always going to buy this release despite some pretty disappointing releases especially the 2011 tour which was not mixed particularly well. However, my copy is load and pretty clear and captures the band incorporating obscure songs like 'This Fear Of Gods' in to the set which sounds fantastic along with Hunter and the Hunted, all the popular songs are all included with a long version of Ghostdancing with Gloria mixed in.
This is a band that has sufferred a lot of negativity in the past as well as constant comparisons with U2 which is like comparing every boxer to Muhamed Ali, but there seems to be some much deserved respect for a band that has always delivered live and there earlier work would be a real eye opener for anyone who only knows thew stadium hits. I would definitely recomend this to fans (the Carlisle CD from 2013 was also pretty good) turn up the volume and enjoy.

Not sure what people are saying about the bad sound quality because it sounds great to me and like i'm back at the show which was amazing!

I've ordered a lot from concert live before and they've replaced any faulty discs so try that if it sounds dodgy.

But personally, it sounds perfect to me and i couldn't expect any better!
