Joe Lynn Turner was on the brink of leaving the band when this tour was suggested. Judging by his performance, he enjoyed himself - although rumour has it that he and the Johanssen brothers never spoke throughout the whole tour.
The production could be better, but as a live album this is reasonable. In particular "Liar" is probably better than the studio version; more energy, better sung and a less complex riff.
The guitar solo is fantastic, and it is also interesting to hear that "You Don't Remember" was dropped from Ab to F to accomodate the new vocalist, although it sounds fine, and Yngwie now prefers the new key.
The Hendrix cover works well, showcasing a different side to the man. Apparently also suggested by JLT, as were other covers he did during the tour (I saw him do "I Surrender" - fantastic!)
There's probably little point in buying this album unless you are familiar with Yngwie's previous work, but for the fan, it makes quite good listening, especially if you've never seen him live.

For me this is a very enjoyable live album for people who like the Malmsteen style. Yes it is eighties poodle hair stuff, yes it is stuff for fantasy-loving teenagers, yes it is in a way kitsch and yes, Malmsteen loves himself beyond limit. But then again: all artists love themselves.

I love this sort of eighties stuff because I grew up loving these strange narcissistic, but musically very talented rockers. It is simply boyish youth sentiment, for those who loved Guns n Roses, Europe, Metallica, Poison, Satriani etc etc.

What is so much fun is the fact that it is in its genre very good, powerful and male. To play the guitar like Malmsteen is something extraordinary and I respect it.

This whole style and certainly this cd breathes male puberty, but I am male, I was a teenager, and I love to feel this sentiment again sometimes, even though now I feel I am more grown up than this music suggests. ;-)

This cd is powerful and rythmically strong, narcissistic baroque-hard-rock. The guitarwork is fine, the singer has a good and expressive voice, the drum is like a steam engine, and it is all very boyishly enthusiastic.

In short: you get what you can expect from a hardrockband from the eighties, curly poodle hair-style. Great melody, male rythm hard as metal, songs with texts full of male fantasies genre Lord of the Rings and a simplistic, straight forward, naive male approach to love and life. In short: good music, great quality and if you do not take it too seriously and great fun to listen to while taking a shower or making fun with your youth friends who used to wear head bangers black shirts back in the eighties.

And admit it, male reader, sometimes we still love to feel this boyish power in our veins and fantasize about abducting princesses and living in a world of magic cristals and we love this simple, even stupid male energetic and self-idealising stuff.

This has got to be one of my favourite Yngwie albums ever (and I have 21 in total). The guitar on this album is amazing, like we've all come to expect from Yngwie if you're a fan, and the vocals (Joe Lynn Turner) are some of the greatest I have heard on a live CD. Songs like 'You Don't Remember, I'll Never Forget', 'Liar', 'Queen in Love' and 'Deja Vu' are so brilliant on this album with Joe giving all he's got and Yngwie just going completely mental! The best two songs on this album have to be 'Guitar Solo' and 'Far Beyond the Sun' (both instrumental) with Jens and Anders Johansson (keyboards, drums) and Barry Dunaway (Bass) providing the essential background to these superb tracks and Yngwie showing why he is truly the greatest guitarist in the world (with exceptions to Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix and Ritchie Blackmore). However, Yngwie's version of 'Spanish Castle Music' by Hendrix is a bit of a disappointment but apart from that this is an excellent album and I would recommend it to anybody who is thinking of buying this album, whether you are an old Malmsteen fan or new, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

The production could be better, but as a live album this is quite good. In particular "Liar" is probably better than the studio version; more energy and better sung.
The guitar solo is fantastic, and it is also interesting to hear that "You Don't Remember" was dropped by 3 semi-tones to accomodate the new vocalist, although it sounds fine.
And the Hendrix cover works well, showcasing a different side to the man. Apparently also suggested by JLT.
There's no point in buying this album unless you are familiar with Yngwie's previous work, but for the fan, it makes good listening.
