Live albums aren't really my thing but a friend told me about this (this was in my early days of NIN mania) so naturally I was overjoyed. It doesn't sound so different from a studio album and is essentially a greatest hits. It does have its good bits (March of the Pigs, Wish) but also kills some songs that should never be played live (The Great Below, The Day The World Went Away). The real gems though are the PHM songs. Hearing them live gives them less of a pop edge and emphicizes more on guitars. Suck is the real star here as it brings out the song and gives it more focus and the raging sound it should have. If anything, this is a step toward their greatest (in my opinion) touring sound on Beside You In Time.
