5.0 out of 5 stars The Hoax leave us with happy memories, 12 April 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Live Forever -Digi- (Audio CD)
The Hoax Live Forever Credible CRCD 1999 Live albums are frequently a disappointment. Too often they are badly recorded and lacking in the atmosphere they seek to convey. Typically, the Hoax have avoided such pitfalls in this, their farewell gift to us. By recording a whole range of shows and selecting the best moments, they have ensured a consistently high performance quality. They have also managed to capture the cauldron-like hubbub which characterises any Hoax performance. This has the effect of placing you where you'd like to be, i.e. right in the middle of the seething throng, whooping at the emotional moments, clapping the instrumental virtuosity and generally being part of the event. Unlike the type of live album which cheats with overdubs and mixes the applause into the background, "Live Forever" is loud and tough. The applause is deafening ... the Hoax audience gains its revenge at last! You'll find all your favourites in this career-spanning retrospective (for me it's "Bones" and "Groovebreaker", for you it'll be something else). Dunno why there's no hint of a slowie; I was confidently expecting "Don't Shake My Hand". Maybe they didn't capture a perfect recording, or maybe they just wanted their goodbye to be a consistently up-beat affair. As usual, they leave us with a mystery in the form of a hard-to-find secret track. It's an untitled and unreleased piece, played as if it's on the PA as the audience leaves. It sounds absolutely great and whets our appetite for whatever the individual members may do next. Oliver Gray

This great live album has some catchy tunes with some guitar lead that will blow your socks off along with some great vocals. This cd deserves a place in any guitarist's music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hoax Rocks, 24 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live Forever -Digi- (Audio CD)
Bought this CD as a present for my son, who did not get the pleasure in seeing them live at 'Blues on the Farm' he informs me as live CD's go this ranks among the best and is looking out to see where they are performing to catch them live. On this feedback I will be purchasing more of the Hoak to add to my collection. If anybody wants visual musical performance then you must go and see the Hoak.
