Before I heard the album I got to here them live in Albuquerque,NM. I have to say that the album is good but hearing them live is even better. I was really wondering how they would sound. Whith out the orignal vocals, I thought that they sounded better than ever. They changed the sound alittle but it was for the better. I think that every rock fan should have this album, and I can’t wait for there next album to come out. If you get the chance go see them live.
