4.0 excellentMrElmo | April 9th 13

First two minutes were really recorded on a crowd cassette (due to the recorder forgetting his job during these two minutes), thankfully after that the sound makes a transition accompanied with Kim's soft voice on a pretty good and raw sound quality. Thus begins a killer show, new drummer steve just joined the band and is playing like crazy, setlist is perfect for all those who didn't get to enjoy enough of the early SY, Gordon and Kim have passion and once you get started with the creepy distorded howls of halloween followed by the amazing Death Valley 69 you know you'll be in for a treat from beginning to end...

Muddy quality that truly sounds like it was recorded on a cassette in some guy in the crowed's pocket (and I wouldn't doubt that being the case), which is perfect, because I wouldn't want to hear my live noise rock recordings any other way.
