2.0 out of 5 stars A caution regarding sound quality, 12 May 2009
After downloading this album and listening to the title track, I started becoming troubled by the higher frequencies (I'm not an audiophile by the way). Pronunciations of 's' in particular sounded quite hissy. To compare I downloaded the same track from compilation 'After the Lights Go Out', and the latter sounded much better, more rounded.

Perhaps the issue is related to mp3 encoding, in which case the physical disc would suffer no such problems. I just wanted to caution fellow customers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful, 20 July 2007
I have yet to find more comfortable in-ear headphones, and the sound quality seems fine. However, as one reviewer has pointed out, the wiring in the jack is less than robust and you may start to lose sound in one ear after a while. It happens to me every 6 months like clockwork. Of course, if you find a retailer with instant replacement cover...

4.0 out of 5 stars Hits the mark, 25 Jun 2006
This review is from: Big Time (Re-Issue) (Audio CD)
This is a thoroughly enjoyable twisted mess, just as you would want a Tom Waits live album to be. Worth getting if you enjoyed the Swordfishtrombones/Rain Dogs/Franks Wild Years trilogy. It's just a shame there aren't more spoken clips: when he tells the story about the soldier and the pregnant girl, it makes you realise he could pretty much wipe the floor with most stand-up comics.

As one reviewer pointed out, the sound quality isn't great and you may find yourself lungeing for the volume control sometimes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three performances in one DVD, 8 May 2005
If you're a fan of Bill Hicks, try to get hold of this dvd instead of "One Night Stand" or "Totally". Both of those shows are included here, plus the brilliant "Relentless" which was filmed at the Montreal Comedy Festival.
