    A beautiful album -- and it's a double live set, dammit! Brilliant.
  2. Completely devoid of instrumental flash, it is an album that succeeds on several levels.
  3. It's a strong accomplishment, and if you were unlucky enough to have missed this intimate string of shows, it's a document that comes close to bringing the experience into your own home.
  4. The sound of the recording is clear, the audience is not annoying and Hayden’s banter in between is quite humorous and as good as the music.
  5. There are no real shocks or surprises on this album; instead a number of more understated delights come through.
  6. Unlike many live albums, which edit out or otherwise correct artists' less than studio-perfect moments, this album offers Hayden at face value. It captures his faults, but it also captures his strengths.
  7. The sad truth is that few of the songs top their studio counterparts.
