  • With Hot Animal Machine currently out of print, Turned On is, I think, one of the earliest recordings available by the Rollins Band. This album is pushing to be ten years old and still sounds as good as any of this band’s newer stuff. Each song is a solid work of music, with Henry’s gravelly shouts and screams, Chris’s distorted guitar riffs, Andrew’s deep and low basslines, and Sim’s hard drum hits and cymbal crashes. I prefer this live album to the subsequent studio recordings after it, if only for the passionate fire and fury of the Rollins Band live. Henry’s throat must’ve been in shreds afer the rips he pulled on it during this show. Down&Away and Turned Inside Out are perfect examples. Yeah, the whole album on one track is a little annoying, but the honesty and heart of it all outweighs this petty complaint.

  • My only complaint is that the whole show is one track. Other than that this is Rollins at his best. The show is tight and has plenty of improvision on Henry’s part. I wish there was more material like this avalable.

  • This is a great live document of a band that is clicking on all cylinders; truly transcendent. In addition, it contains the only “live” version of “Out there” (the Live in Australia CD is a “Live in studio” effort) and a truly awesome version it is. The version of “Down and away” is preceded by the unreleased in any form “Mask” and an amazing “Turned inside out” follows. As a matter of fact, this 15 minutes or so (Mask, Down and away and Turned inside out) is, in my opinion, the most astonishingly honest and brutal self-assessment on record. A great, essential document, you’d be a fool to miss it

  • This is very good live recording. This is, however, a horrible live ALBUM. Why? Because Mr. Rollins, in one of his more obnoxious fits of whimsy, decided that the entire show should be written to CD as one track. That means if you want to hear one of the last songs, you will have to fast-forward through 50-60 minutes to get to it.

    Thank god we have software like Easy CD Creator, which let us edit audio files, and do things like split up tracks… now I have a nice 15-TRACK CD … much much more enjoyable.

    A couple of the songs here a bit too dirge-like, but overall the track selection is good. The live versions of “What Have I Got” and “Hard” in particular are awesome.

    The best live Rollins is found on “Do It.” But this is definitely worth purchasing if you find it used for 6 or 7 bucks. Rollins Band were one of the best live bands I ever saw.
