Sound Quality: A
No noise and a perfect mix – a totally professional job.
Performance Quality: A
One of the, if not THE best Second Coming performances. Ian finds his choir-boy vocals that he lost in 1989 and turns in one of his best performances. Squire is amazing, and Mani, Nigel and Maddix are very tight. Highlights are Ian on TSLS and Squire on Breaking Into Heaven.
Why should I get this bootleg?
The quality is great and the performance is even better.
“Magic” – Russell Moffat, England
“Brilliant (especially the guitar playing)” – Michael Reed, England
“Why couldn’t Ian sing like this more consistantly? Far superior to Leeds.” – Paul Riddington, England
“Brown’s singing is unbelieveable, are you sure it’s him?” – Greig Barrie, Scotland
“Sound quality’s superb, and almost faultless performances of the songs. John Squire’s guitar work is great.” – Kevin Willetts, England
“Superb, Squire is breathtaking and Brown’s vocals were surprisingly good!” – Peter Hancox, England
“One of the greatest things I’ve ever heard.” – Stephen Hackworth, England
“This is a great one. The sound is amazing, the performance is tight, almost too tight. Fantastic overall, Squire is the last guitar hero, Ian sings very well (it’s the greatest Tears we’ll ever hear), the bass is strong, Maddix isn’t too bad, and the keyboard player doesn’t add anything to me except for Tears where he’s very effective. The best Second Coming disc.” – RT, Taiwan
“A very good recording which has clear sound and volume levels for all instruments and for Brown’s voice – which has rarely sounded better. You can tell Squire was on a rock tip at this point, since even subtle guitar parts like the intro to Adored are given the full Gibson Les Paul treatment; but it makes for a refreshing and ballsy alternative. The one gripe is that Maddix at times struggles with their earlier songs (particularly Made Of Stone) because he simply doesn’t have Reni’s famed flowing style – but then, who does? He makes up for this, though, on the sublime Tears, on which everybody plays out of their skins – particularly Squire. This is the standout track in a varied and well-paced concert.” – Allan Reid, England
“Excellent, really good quality. Resurrection sounds absolutely brilliant and any doubts I had about Maddix went after hearing Daybreak. Ian was pretty cool throughout, particularly on Your Star Will Shine and Tears.” – Frank Carlyon, England
“Probably the best copy of a live gig I have got.” – Paul Keightley, England
“Very clear, almost like it’s not live and they are in the studio.” – Phill Jordan, England
“One of the best live performances I have ever heard. The best tracks are Daybreak and Breaking Into Heaven. Squire is absolutely amazing on guitar and the band really sound as if they were getting things together. Did you notice Ian sings a couple of lines from All Along The Watchtower during Tears?” – Paul McAuley, Scotland
