A pretty decent live album, to say the least. It's quite impressive how these 'old' men still have it. Sure, they make some slight mistakes, but all in all this The Cure's most impressive live set, mainly because of the length. Even though it has Jason Jingle Bells Cooper on drums, you get used to the excessive cymbalism after a while.

I'm glad they've done quite some classics like Jumping Someone Else's Train, Boys Don't Cry, 10:15 Saturday Night, Grinding Halt, A Forest, Primary, One Hundred Years, Shake Dog Shake, Push and my all time The Cure-favorite Play for Today. I just wish they had done M, The Figurehead, Pictures of You and Homesick too, but you can't have everything, of course.

The sound quality is pretty decent; comparable to Show and Paris and better than Concert. There isn't much negative to say about this album. The only thing that bothers me is that they changed the lyrics of Killing an Arab, which I find quite sad, actually. Bending over for the left-wing politicians, I guess. They should have just kept it out if they found it that offensive after 32 years. Robert never liked the song much anyway.
