AllMusic Review by

When Apocalypse accepted an invitation to play in the U.S.A., a live CD was thought of for the first time. And after the tapes with the live recordings of their gig at ProgDay 99 in North Carolina were received, a double-live CD -- including a multimedia track with the band's history, discography, video clips, and photos -- was planned. The band finally signed with the Rock Symphony label, which made the best offer. The tracks were taken from their previous CDs released by Musea Records, but there are also the new tracks "América do Sul," "ProgJazz," and "Toccata." There is also a memorable track called "Clássicos," which features rock versions of songs by Grieg ("In the Hall of the Mountain King"), Beethoven ("Symphony No. 9"), Bach ("Minuet From the Notebook of Ana Magdalena Bach"), Mozart ("Rondo Alla Turca, From Sonata in A"), and Tchaikovsky ("Russian Dance" from The Nutcracker Suite). Also, "Paz da Solidão" features Ravel ("Bolero"). A nice booklet full of photos is also included.
