Great music ruined by crowd noise, record companies take note
on 3 July 2014
I certainly like the musical content, but having heard the whole in its entirety I won't be buying the CD. Why? Because the crowd squeals and yells all the way through -- not just at the beginning and end of every song, but throughout also and at such volume as to ruin the music. Yes, I know it's live -- I saw Bauhaus in 1982 (at the Hull Tower Ballroom of all places, and it was electric) but we didn't squeak all the way through the set like this crowd do.
So, music company execs -- if you're going to be recording a live set for release, let the crowd know it in advance on threat of ejection if they don't keep quiet, because the crowd noise has cost you my sale, and plenty of comments in the Amazon reviews focus negatively on this element.
