If you had to pick one Luna album to own, this might be it. The recording highlights two live shows into one continuous stream. Luna is not a band to play their recorded material verbatim. They strip it down and let it go. Pay attention to Sideshow, 4th of July (a Galaxie song,) and Bonnie and Clyde. They reinterpret their own music and present the reinvention to the listener.

They show that they are not always low-key. In fact, a few tracts they cut loose. Some call it shoe gazer or soft core, whatever genre’ you throw at it is up to you. They show their ability to play sophisticated music in a manner which avoids arrogance. Sean and Dean could be guitar heroes in most any other band as leads. They play well as individuals and play well off of one another.

I have owned this album for many years, and it remains on heavy rotation. I saw Galaxie 500 in the early 90’s and Luna three times. While they are not my favorite band, they are one of my favorite bands to see live. I frankly am not enthralled with their studio material. Since they are no longer together I would suggest getting this one. Be on the lookout for a dvd from the final tour called, “tell me do you miss me.”

This band is captured doing what they do best. It seems to be just another night for them. They are/were that good. It is a near musical tragedy that they have called it quits. This is the next best thing to seeing one of the best live bands.

luna was such an underappreciated band. this album does justice to their great live performances. the live rendition of '23 minutes in brussels' is worth the entire album price.
