The design and packaging are excellent as well, at least for a plastic casing.

Don't let the title of this album, "Live MD," fool you. Even though Mr. Bailey did this on the fly and features snippets of a few songs ("Little_A" and "Sleep is for Lunch"), this is a comprehensive electronic work. Also, this album is a refreshing change of pace from the 3 to 4 minute-long songs that Proem usually features on his other albums.

The two untitled tracks, number 7 and number 8, are perhaps the most significant pieces of music Proem has ever recorded.

Highly recommended.

Proem delivers here what in my mind is one of the reasons why I find Richard Bailey to be one of the top brains behind the new agers in the laptop realm of the electronic community.

Rhythmically advanced while scratching at the tip of your brain, this mix will also melt your heart in moments where it's least expected. Wonderfully executed, you'll hear multiple favorites from Proem layered on top of one another in that incredibly calm and relaxed style that RB graces us with. Little_A is a definitely highlight moment for an example of this.

Proem proves here that a live laptop only show from newer producers, when done this well, is entirely okay.
