5 out of 5
Label: Hollywood Records
Produced by: Brian Young, Joe Baressi (mixed by)
Three live cuts, ’twas free at the time (pre-Battle Hymns), and includes a non-album track, ‘Friends.’
The price point adds an instant positive notch, but the recording being pretty aces is also a plus, solidifying that SMs could bring the intensity and speed of their recordings live, live, live. We get a heavy track – Hating Hate – and a poppy track – Face Another Day – and the straight punker, Friends, which actually breaks the two minute mark and has a solid bassline backing it up.
Quick, to the point, and actually worth listening to.
