Be warned, this is an extremely biased review since I readily admit that this album is one of my most favorite, and for a variety of musical reasons. Start with an extremely talented and uncorrupted band, then add some extremely good material, an extremely good venue and some extremely good engineering. Finish this off with some extremely great performances, throw in some excellent mixing and mastering, and you have, in my humble opinion, one extremely excellent album.

This album is an example of how great recorded music can sound, when everything is done for love.
