REVIEWS:

Q (12/94, p.139) - 3 Stars - Good - "...Rendered coffee table classicist supreme...Nyman's artistry rises above such tokenism....a pleasing souvenir..."

Mojo (Publisher) (1/95, p.112) - "...Michael Nyman's high-octane Live album [is] a murky rock-classical hinterland...[he's] a 'serious' composer not afraid of rocking the aisles..."
