This live album has of course little to do with “Space Ritual”.

This one is seriously hard-rock or even metal oriented. But several years separates those two and the tendency of the early eighties is drastically different than in 1973.

Still the band is mixing their early days period (“Brainstorm”, “Master Of The Universe”) with their most recent one (“Motorway City”). This also shows that even during their early days, energy did mean something to the band.

The version of “Brainstorm” available here is totally disjointed and of an extreme violence. Guitars are devastating and after such a track the audience must have been pretty knocked down. Fabulous work as well from the rhythmic section. This is wiiiiild rock music, my prog friends.

Some aerial moment is needed to cool down a little bit, and “Lighthouse” fully does the job. It doesn’t come from the “Hawkwind” repertoire but from a solo work from Tim Blake (“Blake’s New Jerusalem”).

Another crazy version of “Master Of The Universe” is rather energetic as well. While “Space Ritual” was more “trip” oriented, this “Live Seventy-Nine” is definitely a great moment of highly paced rock music. It all started with the punkish “Shot Down In The Night”.

Three stars for this short live album which could wake up the deadliest ones.
