Retrospect Comments

level 4   (95/100)
분위기를 압도하는 시몬스의 역량이 느껴짐
level 7   (95/100)
시모네 시몬스의 보컬이 좀 귀에 안꽃히는거 빼곤 완벽한듯
level 10   (85/100)
시모네 목에 뭐가 걸려있는 것같은 답답함이 있네요. 꼭 목감기 환자처럼 말이죠. 조그마한 사래가 목에 결려 있는지 답답한 느낌이 있어요.
level 6   (80/100)
정말, 대단한 포스의 앨범이다. 시모네 시몬스의 극에 달한 보컬, 군더데기 없는 연주와 퍼포먼스, 청자의 청각과 시각을 압도하는 규모의 오케스트라와 무대까지. 하지만, 높은 점수를 주기 부담스러운 이유는 무얼까.

podarený živák
level 11   (95/100)
보컬이 약간 딸린다는 느낌 빼곤 전부 좋다! DVD도 꼭 사라!
level 6   (100/100)
플레이타임이 다른라이브영상들에 비해서 꾀나 긴편이지만 무대효과도 엄청나고 실력도 죽이는 엄청난 라이브영상이다 10주년기념 라이브라는 타이틀이 안어색할정도
