5.0 out of 5 stars Four astonishing live cuts plus three worthy remixes, 4 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Live In Concert Ep - Roskilde Festival 2007 (Audio CD)
Yeah, unlike the tracklisting published might suggest, only the first four tracks from this EP are live recordings, originally released through iTunes. It seems it must have been quite some kind of success for the Lord of perfectly-crafted dark moody electro, as it's now released on CD through Poker Flat, Anders Trentemoller's usual label, augmented by 3 bonus remixes.

Still, the main attraction is the live renditions of four classic cuts from 2006's "The Last Resort" LP, recorded at last year's Roskilde Festival, and they all sound awesome and very different from their studio original versions; only accompanied by guitarist Mikael Simpson and drummer Henrik Vibskov, Anders unleashes a monstrous "Take Me Into Your Skin", incorporating in the end section a few bars from New Order's "Blue Monday" classic gimmick to devastating effect, delivers a surprising drum'n'bass take on "Snowflake" and gives us his very personal interpretation of electro afro-beat with the possessed "Into The Trees". A chilled-out shortened "Miss You" ends this first live half of the CD quite nicely, before we drop to an almost entirely acoustic stripped-down treat (courtesy of previously mentioned Mikael Simpson) to the much-revered "Moan" featuring bluesy harmonica, strings and still Anne Trolle's purely haunting voice. A pumped-up "Vamp" remix by Kasper Bjorke follows, before we are confronted with the most surprising thing on this delightful set : the Gluteus Maximus Remix of "Miss You" which takes the originally ambient track to a much more ethnic vibe and ends this collection in a rather hypnotic voodoo house mood.

No new stuff yet from the Danish genius here, but I can think of far more useless ways to spend your money than to invest in these deep, rich and emotional 50 minutes.

Given that you can buy the EP with the 4 live tracks on iTunes for £2.49 how strongly would you recommend paying the extra to get all the tracks on this disc?

Well honestly the stripped-downed version of "Moan" is truly worth the small plus you have to add to get this CD; this wouldn't be out of place in a David Lynch soundtrack ('circa "Lost Highway").
