1.0 out of 5 stars What happens when Neal Schon leaves your band..., 3 Jan 2006
This review is from: Live at the Gods Festival 2002 (Audio CD)
and takes your sister with him?
You "comeback" a decade later with a crap live album.
I hate to be negative about anything, but I feel that I should warn anyone who is thinking about buying this particular album to BEWARE. I'm a big fan of the Double Eclipse album and always wondered what the songs would sound like live. If this recording of the current band line-up is anything to go by, I'm glad I never paid any money to go see them.
Any live album which starts with an introduction which tell the crowd (and when I say crowd, it sounds like it was recorded in front of 30 people in a club somewhere... and 25 of them are propping up the bar) that the band are tired and jet-lagged is not promising.
The playing is sloppy (count the bum notes) and the vocals are (and I HATE to say this) painful. The backing singers sound like a cats chorus and had me in stitches for the first three songs, then they just got annoying. They are truly awful. Words alone cannot describe the pain felt when you hear them. The stage raps are tired and unenthusiastic at best, which is a shame.
Luckily, the package is rescued by a few studio songs at the end of the CD which help to heal the bleeding ears caused by the live stuff, but by that time I reckon the band are lucky that anyone is still listening.
So, in conclusion. Only buy this if you have money to spare and you a real diehard fan. You can live without hearing this lot ruin songs you thought you knew and loved and the extra studio songs are nothing special. The Review Editor wouldn't let me give this no stars out of 5, but that's what it gets from me.
A crying shame.
