After releasing three very succesfull studio albums released, in 2006, this 2 CD live album. Recording is from the concert at Gigant (translated: Giant) in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands.

The concert is starting with two songs from the 2001 debut album Massive Hollowness with Zone I and Zone III.
First song starts on CD-1 somewhat insecure (perhaps nervous) with first vocals but after that we have a great album
Specially the harmony vocals with backing vocalists Nathalie Balkema and Monique Leerkens are excellent.

From second album Touch Wood Mangrove plays 5 tracks. On CD-2 we get 3 songs of the 2005, award winning, album Facing the Sunset

For people that are not familiar with the work of Mangrove you get a good view of their full discography so far.
The music live is more Camel-ish then the studio work. Live, Mangrove plays clean with more keyboards and melotron !!! as we hear on the more heavy guitar produced studio albums.
Mangrove is the best band of the Neo-sympho-Dutch School
