3.0 out of 5 stars Lou Sells Himself A Little Short, 13 Aug 2006
By 
This review is from: Take No Prisoners - Live (Audio CD)
I think with 'Take No Prisoners' Lou ultimately sold himself short.
I have a few bootlegs from the tour this live CD was taken from and they show Lou to be in fine form, given a abrasively driven performance backed by his great jazz/soul influenced band.
Unfortunately he decided to release this live performance from the Bottom Line Club which turns out to include a number of stretched out songs with Lou giving a series of frankly irritating monologues which may appear quite amusing on a first or second listen but doesn't retain much interest once the novelty has worn off.
As with his studio album from this period 'Street Hassle' i can't help feeling Lou's primary concern is to make a grand statement (maybe as a result of punk). It's unfortunate because had he released a much more structured album where he just performed the songs straight (like a few of those bootlegs) we may have been talking about a potential Lou classic.
