Source Rating
Mind Over Metal 4.5/5 stars[1]
Dagbladet 5/6 stars[2]

The live version of the album Blackjazz is smashing, All About Jazz critique John Kelman, in his review of Shining's album Live Blackjazz states:

... there's little doubt that his references are more Albert Ayler than Accept, more Brainkiller than Black Sabbath. Still, there's no doubting Munkeby and Shining's predilection for metal's defining characteristics, but there's an underlying intelligence that makes them more than just a fist-pumping, head-banging touchstone...[3]

Here the band culls five tracks from Blackjazz, and another five from Grindstone (2007) and In the Kingdom of Kitsch You Will Be a Monster (2005). This islive versions of tunes that differ markedly from recordings on previous studio albums, yet maintain the essential characteristics that are the hallmark of Shining's music.[3][4]

The reviewer Mats Johnasen of thew MindOverMetal.org awarded the album 4.5 stars,[1] and the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet giving the album dice 5.[2]
