PostSubject: How do you feel about live albums?   Thu Jun 12, 2008 2:09 am

Some hate them and some love them.

I like them fine if they're well done and don't go on for too long. Back before my copy of Cannibal Corpse's Live Cannibalism broke I was pretty fond of it. Opeth's The Roundhouse Tapes is another live album I enjoy.

The one live album I think I'd love just goes on for way too long. Slipknot's 9.0: Live. The quality of the album is great, but they just need to learn that it's best to keep a flow and leave things out. I can listen to one disc at a time... but going on for 2 straight discs? Jesus...

I like live dvds better, in general. It's nice to see the band live and sometimes you get some nice bonus stuff.

I prefer dvds over live albums. I think the only live album i own is Slipknot's 9.0 Live. I only get live cds if i really like the band and own most their cds. I prefer to hear the studio version of songs before the live versions as sometimes the studio version sounds amazing but the live version sounds really bad or on in some cases the band sucks ass live all together.

Yeah... I have AFI's live dvd. The band itself can play great live... Sounds pretty close to the studio versions... Davey Havok is just a shitty singer. It really comes out when they play live. I refuse to buy the cd version because his voice ruins the whole thing.

I have a few live dvds. I enjoyed my funeral for a friend live dvd when i watched it, they sounded good. My Coheed And Cambria one isn't so great so i was rather disappointed in it but their cds are all great quality so i just stick to playing them.

I borrowed Killswitch Engage's live dvd from a friend and that held me from start to finish. I prefer their live sound over the cd i own.

I have the special edition of The End of Heartache. It's got a few live songs on the second disc that sounded pretty good. Never seen their dvd, though.

I have the standard edition of The End Of Heartache, which i haven't listened to in ages. On the dvd Howard sings alot of the older songs that their previous singer wrote. I haven't heard their old material before so i can't compare Howards voice to Jesse's voice but Howard did sing those songs well. I'll have to check out their older albums and see who is a better singer as i've heard mixed feelings from people towards both singers so i need to check it out so i can find out for myself.

I actually prefer Howard, myself. Howard singing "Fixation on the Darkness" is fucking great.

It depends on the artist. I mean, I love Fall Out Boy, but they SUCK live. I don't think I'll ever buy a live cd of theirs. I also have to agree with you on AFI. Davey can't sing. Oh well.

Yeah. It does depend on who it is. I usually like live songs... But sometimes they give me a headache. Fall Out Boy live gives me a big headache...

I like them, I actually prefer them to DVDs because I can listen to music any time I can't watch a DVD anytime.

FOB does give me a major headache when I listen to them live. I guess I'll never see them live.

To me, it depends on the artists. If they are REALLY good live, I don't mind giving it a listen but if they suck live, I won't even give it a chance.

Examples:

Rammstein, Slipknot = good live
Dir en grey, Rancid = bad live

I don't like live albums. There are a couple I enjoy, like Judas Priest's Unleashed In The East, but I almost always prefer to listen to the studio versions of the songs.
