Release : CD

Mr. Big has surely made one helluva comeback.  They’ve had their ups and downs, but since their rebirth and their subsequent new – and very good album – I’ve had renewed high hopes in them.

While waiting for their next album, they’ve released this live and almost entirely acoustic album, recorded in the Wowow TV studios in Tokyo.  Now as most of you might know I’ve got a bit of a prejudice when it comes to live albums, and the same might be said for acoustic albums.

But while listening to this album, I had to review that opinion.  This album gave me a whoa feeling.  It’s very, very good.  Of course with first notch musicians like Mr. Big are it would have been a shame had they ruined their good, classy songs in an acoustic version. 

To sum it up: a good ‘teaser’ for their next album, and one that all fans of Mr. Big should buy.

97/100
