I’ve read a lot about how the sound quality is poor and the singer isn’t singing up to par etc etc, but I have to say, I’m extremely pleased with this CD. I love live CDs in general, and while this CD set isn’t polished, it doesn’t really have to be. It’s live. Part of the fun of listening to a live CD is escaping the overproduced sounds of studio recordings for something more raw, but still enjoyable, and I think A Real Live Dead One fits the bill.
The track list is good, despite missing a song or two that I’d have liked to have had on here, and despite what others might say, I think the music volume is blended nicely with the vocals. This CD really gives off that live show aura while providing good quality to the songs we know and love.
Don’t be closed minded about this CD… give it a chance!
