To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I'd read about the echo-y sound and have to admit that it is pretty bad. The track list is fine, the band is as we would expect from JI & 400, but the sound ruins the experience. Avoid. Or better yet, buy Live In Alabama instead.
I’ve loved all of the albums Jason has put out (including the DBT work)...until this one.
I purchased the CD, so I dismissed the comments about the album press and poor quality. However, even on the CD, the recording doesn’t sound very good, but that’s not really my issue with album - although it is the first indication that little effort was put into this.
My real issue is that with a live album I want to come as close as possible to experiencing the show as if I was there. And this doesn’t even come close....it is simply a collection of live songs, not a live performance. There’s no real flow or commentary between the songs, the first song simply starts and the last song simply ends. After the last song Jason says “thank you, that’s another song off our new record” and the recording ends!
The album is only 58 minutes which is an obvious indicator that it’s a chopped up set of songs from a 90 minute live performance.
For an artist that talks so much about the quality of music, I really don’t get why Jason would have put something like this out.
The song selection is pretty uninspired. The real issue is the quality of the recording. When I first played the vinyl, I thought there was something wrong with my set up. I checked and rechecked everything. Nope. Other records have no issues-this really needs to be quality checked. Pretty disappointed.
