I have followed anthrax for as long as I can remember, and when this album was pulled from release in 2007 (I had it pre-ordered), I was a bit dissapointed. When I saw that they were releasing it to coincide with the deluxe edition of Amongh the living, I was elated. This has a great set list from two concerts on that tour, one at Hammersmith Odeon, the other at Donnington. When I recieved the album and listened to the albums, I am let down by the mastering. Very rough, with parts being very tinny and almost tough to discern for me at times the beat and rhythm. I have bootleg Cd’s that are mastered/sound better than this. I figured in two years that they had this off the market they would have improved this, but they did not. The Copyright is actually 2007 still on the label, so this was just sitting on a shelf unsold. This album is a good representation early anthrax for anyone because of the great tracklist, but I would not purchase this to introduce anyone to this. A must only for the collector.
Update 12/25/2009: Just a note from a comment by another shopper. The second disc does not contain “I’m the Man” as track 9, it is just AIR split into tracks 8 & 9 with a brief intermission for Joey to talk to the crowd. Again, couldn’t they have fixed this in the two years they had this thing sitting on the shelf?
