Amazingly their first full-length concert on any format!
I can't help thinking about the past,though,and the wasted opportunities in their hey-day.
But that was then,and this is now.
Monument was a major let-down really when you compare it to it's neaest rival in Japan's Oil On Canvas. In fairness I can't remember any live albums by other bands during this time, although I guess I could have missed them.

The one thing that really showcases the Monument album and in turn Ultravox as a live powerhouse was the live version of The Voice which still makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up when Midge yells 'our support band, Messengers!' and then takes me to another plane when the synchronised drumming begins. For me, this is the best live track ever, bar none.
