The sticker on this album boasts "77 minutes of pure live Corrosion!" By the end of the album you'll be wishing it was even longer. C.O.C.'s first ever live album certainly delivers all it can in the little single cd package. The Kings of metal jam-dom bust out lengthy, guitar ladden, improvisions of the tunes we know and love. There's a good mix of old and new, although there's only one track off "Blind", (gee, I wonder which one it could be? "Dance Of The Dead" would've been killler too but eh, well) and no material off any albums before it. The newer stuff sounds great live, "Congratulations Song" is so damn catchy. The mix is great, every one of Pepper's palm mutes, Mike's slaps, and Woody's little pick scrapes bust right through your speakers. Also check out how the guitar bounces back and forth around your head at about 4:17 on "Clean My Wounds". A definate must for any C.O.C. fan.
