  1. An insightful review that captured the night we'll.
    I have to say that the songs sang raw, fast and unaccompanied worked much better for me than the rather over- produced CD versions.
    I'm rather glad that Angaleena did leave the band at home as the intimacy of both the songs and the crowd interaction just wouldn't have been the same
