This is an acoustic live show the excellent "Without the Aid of a Safety Net" featured seven acoustic numbers and seven electric numbers and is, by far, the better album with some mildly annoying female backing vocals and violin fiddle, really accompanyment in an effort to make up for the missing Du Hast Mir Gerade Noch Gefehlt - Purple Schulz - Die Singles 84-92 guitar solos that made this band so easily identifiable and enjoyable.
Nevertheless, this album does have some shining moments. This alone makes the album worth owning. On the downside, the covers are good and bad. However, the decision to include Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi" with Carol Laula singing lead vocals is a bit of a mystery and downright annoying. Similarly, Steve Harley's lead vocals on his self-penned although very much "All Along the Watchtower" sounding "Sling It" detract from the overall enjoyment of this release.
Tom Jobim* - Millennium - 20 Músicas Do Século XX included is a curious rendition of "Summertime" and an acoustic, somewhat unemotional version of "Buffalo Skinners" the original, on the "Ships" cd-single is one of the most powerful songs the band has ever performed and includes an electric guitar solo of emotion unsurpassed in the band's history.
Overall, there's enough to recommend this cd--just be prepared to hit the skip button for the tracks not sung by Stuart Adamson. The music is generally emotional and will get your toes tapping like Big Country was prone to do. Unfortunately, the cover tracks on which Stuart Adamson does not sing lead drag the album down. In addition, the light and airy arrangement of "Where the Rose Is Sown", while enjoyable, betrays its dark subject matter of facing death in a war zone.
