As I was on holiday, I just listened to RW 5 for the first time some days ago. Nice record, but for me 11 minutes of "KÃ¶ln" is a waste of time. The intro was perfect as concert intro in Bremen, but I know on record I will skip it for the rest of my life.
Like the notes on the sleeve(s) say; the series is to highlight the improvisational and experimental side of MP-live, i.m.o. it's great to have document of this. Funny: first time I played the records I tried to figure out wich song I was listening to, thinking: wow, how are they gonna transfer this into TAIFUN ?!! Then I figured I best let go all expectations, forget about songs, and just dive into the ocean of sound!
