      Haggard's first live album (2001).

      A live album released after the full-lengths 'And Thou Shalt Trust... The Seer' and 'Awaking the Centuries,' this performance essentially compresses those two conceptual releases into an edited best-of, arranged in chronological order. The live sound quality is excellent, essential considering the vast size of the band and all its symphonic and choral elements, but the editing itself could have done with a little work. The first two songs are dominated by the annoying crowd, and although this adds to the authenticity of the live experience, it's irritating and unnecessary on repeated listens. The songs here display the full range of the band's talents, from the entirely classical interludes to the heavier, black metal inspired 'Prophecy Fullfilled' and the melodic combination of melodic guitars and melancholy symphony in 'Lost' and the extensive 'Awaking the Centuries.' The album would have benefitted from being longer, but released at such an early stage of Haggard's career, this wasn't really an option; I suppose an official live release would have been best saved until a little later on. 1.
