Really really great, lots of classics, 18, Halo of flies ect.
and some more modern tracks too.
Given that its not that long since the previous live disc(Theatre of Death),it was a surprise that Alice chose to release another,so a re vamp of the set list was anticipated,and so it was ,slightly, welcome returns for the likes of 'Brutal Planet','Hey Stoopid','Elected' and 'Muscle of Love',sadly the overlong 'Halo of Flies' killed the atmosphere stone dead,most simply didnt get it,like wise the rare appearance of 'Clones',bemused looks all round where i was sitting,as a long term fan , i loved it but for most it seemed too much and momentum built up lost,sadly the live recording echoes this.
For the most part the sound quality is excellent,some may not like the drum heavy production,i do,its a decent album rather than outstanding,,the running order faithful to the show,highlighting its disjointed state,probably only for completists 3.5 stars
Unfortunately this release seems to have been incredibly badly mixed. Most of the band seems to have gone AWOL at different times during post production and as much as I appreciate hearing Chuck Garric's bass and Glen Sobel's drums I would have loved to have been able to pick out more of the guitar work by Steven Hunter, Tommy Henricksen and Orianthi all of whom seem to have been, for huge swathes of the show, almost mixed into oblivion. Most of the backing vocals, which always add to the texture of an Alice show have been mixed to a barely audible level (Feed My Frankenstein being an obvious example off the top of my head) and at times even Alice himself seems to have gone missing in the production!
All in all a disappointing release for, in my opinion, a fantastic show. This simply wasn't a patch on the previous years release of Theatre Of Death from Hammersmith. I guess I'll be sticking to my DVR'd copy of the TV broadcast of No More Mr Nice Guy at Alexandra Palace. 5 stars for the setlist, 2 stars for the production, therefore a 3-star average rating for the release.
Having been at the Alexandra Palace to see this very concert (you can here me scream "YEEEEEEEAAAAHHHH!!!" around 5 seconds into "Clones"!!!), I can promise all avid fans, first timers, chance buyers or whoever you may be that his recent No More Mr. Nice Guy tour provides all the glorious grandeur that Alice has been well known for over the years, and this being the absolute pinacle.
Stampeding through all the ultimate classics such as "I'm Eighteen", "Feed My Frankenstein" and "Poison", not to mention the obvious slices of rock gold that are "Poison" and "School's Out", as well as some modern hits such as "Brutal Planet" and, from his new album, "I'll Bite Your Face Off", Alice swaggers through some defining moments of his career, showcasing his rock genius in all its glory. The key performances here have to be the climactic "Halo of Flies" and a genuinley heart-renderring "Only Women Bleed", for which the audience go totally ecstatic! The cherry on the cake though must surely be his stunning performance of "Fire" alongside "the most frightening creture in rock and roll... Arthur Brown"; a truly definitive moment for Sickthings as well as Alice himself!
Overall, this is totally, without a doubt, one of the best live rock albums to be released in years; alongside drummer Glen Sobel and guest guitarist Orinathi, Alice is fighting fit and truly shows that this time it really is No More Mr. Nice Guy!

This is personally one of the best albums of Alice Cooper. His live shows are sublime and have a story in it.Published on 20 Sept. 2013 by Danny
