Sound: Well in my opinion it's a big f--k you to anyone who said that they couldn't do it. Well they did. And they still are. The Quo are pushing 60 now and are still rocking as if they were in their 20. All the volume levels are bang on and if you have seen them live yourself then you'll know what to expect from Francis' cheeky mouth. Andrew Bown's keyboard playing is out of this world and Rhino's bass sound is stunning. Matthew's drumming is at it's best as he improvises drum solos and fills and the other two are just awesome. If I had the money I would see them every week but this is the next best thing. Recorded in 2006 at the N.E.C in Birmingham the rock gods show their fans they've got tons left in 'em yet. // 10

Overall Impression: It's just awesomely mind blowing. But don't take a fan's word for it. Buy it. As a guitarist you should love it and if you don't like it from a musical/performance perspective, you're simple. The style may not be your thing but let all these young bands step down a second and let the monarchs of rock 'n' roll show you how it should be done. Give it a try. I promise you, if you have any musical knowledge at all you will (if secretly) admire them. // 9
