4.5 superbNagrarok | September 26th 10

Selling millions of copies, Throwing Copper is not only Live's most popular album, but also by far their best. The popular singles Selling the Drama, I Alone, Lightning Crashes and All Over You, all having become essential 90's staples, are among the record's best moments, but careful listening to the entire thing will reveal a great find of hidden gems. Especially The Dam at Otter Creek, an unusually dark song for the group, the epic Pillar of Davidson and closer White, Discussion count among Live's very finest. Sadly enough, the sudden success of Throwing Copper brought the band so much mainstream attention that it eventually became their downfall, failing to live up to the reputation of this peak moment.

Live. Interesting name...interesting band. A band that come out of the post grunge genre that deliveres one heck of a blow with their album "Throwing Copper". After listening to "Throwing Copper" you can not help but push play one more time. With classics like "Lightning Crashes" and "I Alone" to the hidden gems- "The Dam At Otter Creek" and "Iris", this album proves to be Live's best, and one of my personal favorites. Live hit the nail on the head with this album-Classic Album-5.

This is one of the few 4/5 ratings I have that is borderline 4.5/5 worthy. The band has a bombastic, near-psychedelic sound that only Creed could dream of re-creating w/o sounding too preachy (as a religious band) or repetitive (as a pop rock band). Aside from a few filler tracks (Shit-Towne, Stage, and Horse [Bonus track]), this is one of the most emotional 90s grunge albums to have ever been made.

4.5 superbTheSonomaDude | November 13th 14

One of the best albums of the 90's, an absolute classic. Great song after great song after great song, whether or not it was one of the six charting singles. How the fuck is this album not as highly regarded as Nevermind or Ten?

4.5 superbMnstorm99 | October 8th 14

The collection of songs make this an excellent album, but certain songs (including The Dam at Otter Creek, to start the album) make this an almost classic album for me.

5.0 classicSevenlee | June 2nd 11

Regular radio rock rarely excites me but Live is something different. Their form has been inconsistent over the years but Throwing Copper has always been a classic. The songs aren't just your typical 3 and half minute radio friendly singles. They are well written, thoughtful and moving songs and will certainly stand the test of time.
