Wow, this was energetic! Just another example of how good live albums are when they're good. I knew the band but not this album. As a big fan of classic live albums, I consider this filling a void. Thank you for that

Very heavy indeed! The energy just splashes in your face, even though you're not in the live audience! Amazing wall of sound too. Good choice!

Thee Oh Sees are so prolific and consistent sound-wise that it's hard to pick their best album, so a live set serves to represent their discography well. They have some prog/psych/noise tendencies that separate them from more run-of-the-mill garage rock.

Fun energetic punky concert. The kind of concert that justifies its existence from the raw energy that is not repeatable in a studio.

Above average garage-y West Coast rock and roll from a band I hadn't listened to before. Though not universally true by any means, I feel like live rock tends to be a blunter instrument, and I may check out how the studio product compares. No complaints anyway, it was a good workout jam.

Woah! That was quite the ride! Great energy and I just love how well the live sound is captured in this recording.

An interesting choice, although I'm not sure that is too unique compared to a lot of similar acts on the list and choosing a live album specifically is a weird one.

Live, Thee Oh Sees bury Dwyer behind walls; Recording, the same decision is made about banter as for mix. So the record becomes an exhibit of how the band's thinking: A little loose, very much with fingers. They're deep deep deep in the groove, surface weirded a little more than a studio record allows.

This sounds really energetic, but without visuals it is just too chaotic for me. And I really believe if I was in the crowd I would be blown away. So, three stars it is.

Not too bad for noisy indie stuff. Punky and catchy as well. At one point I thought the same song had played twice though, and it hadn't. Not the mark of a GREAT album lol. 3/5.

This album is not necessary. A live album certainly doesn't improve it in any way. Sometimes the music was alright. The lyrics weren't good. No need to revisit.
