Circus Maximus to release live Bluray .......

Then I posted on Glenn's board about the set list, and someone was nice enough to post the set list ................

Namaste
The One
The Weight
Highest Bitter
Architect of Fortune
Arrival of Love
Loved Ones
Sin
Havoc
Pages
Abyss
I Am

This did not come at a good time when I listening to "Glory of the Empire" at the time I was researching ........just felt like a complete downer. However, as I stated to some, they have me at a disadvantage not having anything down on DVD to serve as a momento for a live recording, so I am inclined to buy this regardless......

It's not THAT bad..... Sadly, though, it's also not that good. "Havoc" and "Nine" both have moments of greatness, but sadly far fewer than what I expect from a band as brilliant as CM.

I also have mixed feelings because of the set list...

I'll give this it's due. I'm betting a lot of these tunes morph into something heavier and proggier in a live setting with live energy.

I've watched their career since I got a demo CD from Truls to review way before the debut was released. I've seen and heard the shifts in sound and direction, mostly for the worse to my ears, but...

I'm gonna give them a shot to win me over. Instant purchase with trepidation.

LOL...... I think I was unplugged most of the weekend....

Maybe, but I also have a soft spot for melodic rock / hair metal that some of this stuff still slightly appeals to.

Seconded, Chris. I thought they presented the material last year as well as anything they've done before.

I was a contributor to this one, so I will own it......and I'm thinking I'll enjoy it more than most here, because I didn't hate Havoc.
