Album overview by Graham Johnston

Forget it. The world does not need a live album with the Tragic Band. If you’re a completist buying this because you feel you have to, you’ll probably find a couple of pleasing moments, particularly during “Mirror Man”. I suppose we should also be grateful that it doesn’t contain the horrible “Sweet Georgia Brown” that was performed around this time. Other than these saving graces, this is thoroughly worthless.

I actually really like all the songs on here (yes, even the Unconditionally Guaranteed ones) but I just cannot stomach this. The Mark Knopfler-like guitars and bland bland dullness will just make you feel very sad. Sorry.

Yuck, bin it.
