It's a solid live album, it has a couple of songs I began to remember from my childhood as I heard them. Yes, it's not anything out of the ordinary and I don't think it "brought anything new to the table" back then, but I also don't think it meant to. It's just an "inoffensive" pleasant album (with a pretty unfortunate Stones cover, I have to say)

The guitar is impressive on this album. It's no use having great guitar if the songs are kind of boring though.

Great live album. Vast majority of this album playa on radio already. Good songwriter, connects with the audience and he sounds like he is having fun at this show in SF. Frampton understands his craft and changes the gimmick of his voice box into more than that. He doesn't overuse it, but it becomes part of his toolbox.

This album is such a wonderful trip for me on two levels. First, on the nostalgia front, it brings me back to summers of my youth when these songs played on the radio and the energy was fantastic. Next, for me as a present-day listener, I hear and appreciate the music in a whole new way. The songs are a lot fun, they hold up well in the harsh light of time's passing, and I am blown away by the musicians, all of them. Bob Mayo's keys are on another level. I could listen to his keyboard solo on 'Do You Feel Like We Do' go on for hours. And Frampton's guitar playing...wow. Growing up, I somehow missed his being on the level of the other rock guitar gods I adored. I know now. Related Note: I recently discovered an album he recorded just a couple years ago, 'All Blues,' which is outstanding. He's still a true artist on the guitar. Back to this album: Yes, definitely one of the all-time greats. If the only song on it were 'Do You Feel Like We Do,' I'd still believe it's worthy of this list. Final Note: fans of Peter Frampton should see Rick Beato's "What Makes This Song Great?" episode on 'Do You Feel Like We Do' as well as the few other Peter Frampton-focused videos on Rick Beato's YouTube channel. Absolute worth watching.

I'm having another ohhhhhhhhhh-I-get-it-now moment. I've heard bits of this my whole life but never sat through the whole thing and kind of didn't think I'd like it that much. I listened to the 35th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, 1 hour and 46 minutes of music that I didn't want to end. Frampton's musicianship is astounding --- there's plenty of impressively spoodly electric guitar solos but then there's some lovely acoustic technique in Penny for your Thoughts and All I Wanna Be. And his voice! Smooth and lovely throughout, lots of variation. None of the fatigue or pitch problems you can sometimes hear in live recordings. I think of Frampton as a great guitarist but he can really really sing and he seems to be an incredible showman. In addition to the singles I was familiar with, I fell in love with several of these songs during this listen: Wind of Change, All I Wanna Be, I Wanna Go to the Sun, Shine On, and White Sugar. I didn't really love the cover of Jumpin' Jack Flash --- it just didn't seem to have teeth for some reason --- but I have renewed appreciation for Do You Feel Like We Do, all 14 minutes of it. So great!

I don't think I'm smart enough for this album. The lyrics are basically poetry and the rhythms go way past standard 4/4. Due to Nick Drake being such a loner, he had no one else playing on this work, but he could have been huge if he could have collaborated with others. It's also why I can't rate it highly. Sure, pink moon is good and technically it is all good, but this is a 3.5 or a 7 out of 10. It just needs more and I don't think he had written his opus before he died. This was just a taste.

I've listened to this album many times, but probably not since the early 80s when my sister moved out of our house and took her album collection with her. Live albums aren't usually my jam as I generally prefer the cleaner sound of a studio recording. The crowd and background sounds are often distracting to me . Was that sound at the 0:55 mark in Wind of Change the sound of - a gunshot? balloon popping...? I quite enjoyed listening to this album though. It is well recorded and I enjoyed the 70s arena rock vibe. Even the 14 minutes of "Do You Feel Like We Do" didn't wear on me. Frampton's songs are solid 70s rock and he knows how to deliver them live. FRAMPTON COMES ALIVE! is easy to like as the big hits I am familiar with were actually from this album. There is an intensity Frampton's live performance brings that explains why this is one of the greatest live rock recordings.

Just an extremely tight set. After reviewing Bob Dylan's "At Royal Albert Hall" immediately before this, this is a breath of fresh air. The crowd is super into it, and Frampton brings across a super bubbly, buoyant, and fun set. It doesn't break the mold or anything, just wonderful rock n' roll. Favorite tracks: "Show Me the Way", "All I Want to Be", "Baby, I Love Your Way"

I understand that this live album was Frampton's breakthrough, but I really don't understand why some people prefer to hear live recordings over studio recordings. It's simply the inferior version to me. That said, even though I'd wish these were the same songs but in studio quality, I really like Peter Frampton and enjoyed listening to this album. While the studio versions might be 4.5 stars to me, this is still 3.5 stars. Rounding up because most other albums from last week were a lot worse than this one.

Frampton Comes Alive has always intrigued me by the fact that the live versions of these (great) songs are the defacto versions....you never hear the studio versions anywhere. I need to go back and listen to the studio versions just to compare, but the album (and the use of the talk box) is great. Would have been a great show to see back in the day. 4/5

If I hadn't listened to this live album, I would have rated it much lower. However, listening to this album live, I understood Frampton as an artist and why he's so loved. "Do You Feel Like We Do" is 14 minutes of the guitar having its shine and let's also talk about "Jumping Jack Flash" which was a fun song to get just a glimpse of what it was like to see Frampton live. Thanks to the generator for letting me finally hear Peter Frampton and actually enjoy it. Standout songs: All I Want To Be (Is By Your Side), Jumping Jack Flash, Do You Feel Like We Do, Shine On.

Очень скучная хрень. Всё вроде бы понятно, местами приятно, но очень скучно. И ещё не понятно, в чём тут прикол лайва. В случае с Нилом Янгом это звучало хотя бы чисто, интересно и красиво. А тут же будто типикал лайв роцк-альбом, склёпанный для фанатов. Но нет, эта запись ещё и лучше студийников оценена (или так же)! В принципе, даю отчёт, то если услышу в дороге, головой покиваю, но ныне не пропёрся.

ну, норм на самом деле, но мне че-то в настроение не зашло. При этом первую песню всё равно высоко довольно оценил, балдёжный припев. Остальное ну так, но послушать можно, есть какие-то интересные места, которые отличают этого Фрэмптона от банальных роцкенрольщиков. Правда, то что это двойной живой альбом — серьёзный блять минус, ибо ну невыносимо иногда такую длину больше одного раза прогнать. Но при этом свой шарм тоже даёт — пару раз в голос угорал с того как на записи люди верещат после каждой ноты, начинают кашлять, уходить, кто-то крикнул «хуй!» на 49 минуте альбоме... не, не крикнул, можете не слушать, не проверять. ну 6, короче

I believe the only reason why this album is included on the list is because it sold like hot cakes in the 70s. One of the best selling live albums of all times. But personally I don't see the hype. It's decent classic rock. It has three classic radio staples, including a 14 minute "Do you feel like we do". I think it's the longest song I have liked on Spotify, so that says something about how bearable it is. The live audience helps keep that and many other songs stay alive, which helps get through the sheer length of the album. Many of the tracks are just bad or boring, and I didn't even realize there was a Rolling Stones cover because of how generic it sounded like the others. However, besides the radio staples, there are several songs I like (e.g. Doobie Wah), and this live album does demonstrate Frampton's talent better than any of his studio albums do.

This is p cool, bit of 70s rock. I've never actually listened to Peter Frampton before but I know he's considered one of the greats. I still dunno how I feel about live albums on the list, and it IS a bit of a stretch at 78min of music I've never heard before (except baby I love your way), and this felt like it was really hammered home when the last track ended up being an extended jam, but this is still a 3/5 overall.

I know I've listened to this a few times. The fact that I never bought it during my CD buying heyday doesn't particularly bode well? Something's Happening is a decent song that gets really good when the singing stops and he plays that guitar which is still pretty impressive. There's a bunch of acoustic songs here that are a real snooze. We're here for ONE reason Pete, and that's to hear you make teh guitar talk kinda... Baby, I love Your Way is a shitty song, but I don't hate it because I associate it with that scene in High Fidelity. I like crowd noise on live albums, but I gotta admit, Penny For Your Thoughts woudl be better without some dumbshit going "YOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW!" every 15 seconds Another song started and I was about to be liek "jesus, now he's ripping off the Stones!" but then he started singing and it's a cover of Jumpin jack Flash. (not a particularly great one? But it's a pretty great song and the guitar solo is good so it's all good) I was sort of negative leaning going in and many of my comments maybe sound like I didn't like it, but there wasn't anything I outright DISliked and there area few things that I really enjoyed. As stupid and cliche as it is? It's really fuckign awesonme when he makes his guitar go OOOOOOOOOUUUUUUEEEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHLLLLAAAAAAAAKKKKEEEEEDOOOO

There's absolutely nothing like the feeling of live music, but I've never been a fan of live albums. They don't give you the feel of being there, they don't sound as good as a studio album, and every flaw or random noise is annoyingly repeated every time you listen. This one, however, is justifiably at the top of live albums. "Do You Feel Like We Do" does make me wish I were there, and probably gives the best feel of a live event. And the talk box (along with the crowd reaction to it) is still, very, very cool. It was my favorite part of the album and I enjoyed the full 14 minutes. The other singles from the album are classics, but have never been favorites of mine. Beyond that, it was an hour of similar, well-performed stuff.

Ako slučajno napišeš pjesmu koja nosi naziv Wind of Change, i ne bude dobra, kupi prnje! U ovom slučaju ovdje je ta pjesma najbolja. Baby I Love Your Way je čak poznata, ne znam otkle mi, garant neki film, il neki vrag, isto nije loša te se dobrima pridružuju još I Wanna go to the Sun i divan instrumental Penny For Your Thoughts.

This being a live album biases me against it, but it has some good qualities. I think the quieter, more spare songs help give the album some relief, and you can hear in those songs the crowd's respect. The talk box stuff is fun. The Jumping Jack Flash cover is bad. The guitar work is pleasing, very skillful in the more uptempo songs. Mixed bag.

This is a classic live album, and great fun to listen to. It showcases Peter Frampton's talents better than any of his studio albums at the time could. He really is an excellent guitarist and he's so likeable, you can't help but be in a good mood listening to these songs. The quality of individual songs is somewhat uneven, with some absolute classics mixed in with other songs that are well-played, but ultimately unmemorable. "Show Me the Way" is just lovely, and something I will gladly listen to every day forever. Fave Songs: Show Me the Way, Do You Feel Like We Do, Baby I Love Your Way, Doobie Wah, Penny for Your Thoughts

Frampton's live album was a good stadium rock album. Never heard of Frampton himself, but didn't realise he was the one behind 'Baby I Love the Way'.

Bit of a snoozefest. Sounds very 70s. Preferred the middle/second half. I don't really get live albums either - doesn't really capture the excitement of being there, and the production and sound is just bad. Extra cred cos I love Baby I Love Your Way.

As usual, dreading the receipt of a live album. It seems this is the only Frampton album on the list though, so I'll have to make do. This has the recognizable hits, which were nice, and it makes me wonder if I've even heard the studio versions of these tracks? I don't know, and frankly I'm tired. Still, better than the Deep Purple live atrocity recently. A few hits I'll walk away with, but two live albums in a week feels like punishment. Favorite tracks: Show Me the Way, Baby I Love Your Way (what is this guy's obsession with ways?), Penny for Your Thoughts. Album art: Honestly, a hazy close-up does more for me than the typical live performance photo. The exclamation mark is funny. Like an old-timey spinning newspaper headline. 2.5/5

Loved Peter growing up but listening to this today I felt the songs were running into each other..not much variance or variety

It's a live album... beyond the talky guitar thing there's no much remarkable here. I'm going to check out the studio albums next though.

Op zich leuke muziek, maar voor mij dan liever het origineel dan de live uitvoering. Zoiets is alleen leuk als je erbij was. Ik vind nu de zang wat tegen vallen. Favorieten is natuurlijk "Show Me The Way" **

This is another one I never actually listened to. I was actually embarrassed to admit that I never heard it. The way some people talked about it, I thought this was some iconic, Queen at Live-Aid, type of show that I just never experienced. Alas, I am disappointed. Maybe if I had seen the show live - or even on TV - I'd feel differently, but I don't get it. It was good. Just good. I thought Peter Frampton "coming alive" would serve to set him apart somehow. It doesn't. The songs are good "70's rock playlist" material - I don't think I'd ever complain if someone played them at a party. His vocals are okay, but definitely not compared to some of the other singers of the day. Likewise for his guitar playing - he's really good, but probably not even top 10 among others that were touring in the mid-70s. (Although "Penny for Your Thoughts" was technically impressive). Maybe I built it up too much in my head? But I don't think so.

WHAT A SLOG. I mean I enjoy these songs out of context and think the playing is great. Even in terms of being a live record, this is atrocious. The only thing saving it from a 1 is the excellent talent displayed.

I was pleasantly surprised that this wasn't 77 minutes of Frampton with his effing talk box, but it was still a mediocre guitar rock concert. There were about half a dozen songs that the crowd pretended to like, a self-indulgent not-that-great Stones cover, and a couple of good tunes. Oh, and a talk box finale that made me want to play in traffic. Best track: Baby, I Love Your Way

Not a huge fan of live albums in general and this one is particularly annoying in that the crowd is continually hooting and howling and whistling in the middle of the songs, which was absolutely a conscious choice to mic them and incorporate that element prominently in the mix. The guitar playing seems to be the centerpiece here but unfortunately I feel like the songs themselves are just mediocre so that it all comes across flat. The final strike against it is that it's simply unnecessarily too long as a double album.

Fine, but quite boring. Again, why was this so popular? (And far too long… If he wasn’t very successful, why did he get a lavishly produced live album, and who is watching?!)

A professional live performance and competent noodling but didn't really excite me and got really quite boring by the end. 2/5.

Boring. Live album. Brit who was bigger in the USA than he was in the UK. Paved the path for Bush to pull the same trick. Boring. Baby I love your way is also a war crime.

A live double album? What did I ever do to deserve this? Fucking Frampton. He's got a couple of bops, no doubt. But listening to one of them for 4 1/2 minutes on the radio is the correct dosage. I hate listening to people clap and whoop and holler during recorded music.

Frampton seems to be very good at coming up with catchy hooks/riffs, and very bad at turning those into full interesting songs. That won't stop him trying for FOURTEEN BALL-ACHING MINUTES though!

"I Want You. Show Me The Way". Un incontournable à écouter à cause de cette pièce et parce que cet album a tellement été vendu. On le retrouve dans pratiquement toutes les ventes de garage. Par contre ça reste un album live avec tous ce que je n'aime pas d'un album live.
