Live: Live At The Paradiso - Amsterdam

Live At The Paradiso: Amsterdam
Vanguard Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
Live is a band I have always enjoyed since their debut record Mental Jewelry [1991]. When Throwing Copper [1994] propelled them into the mainstream it looked like always filling arenas would be their destiny but somewhat average releases over the years have stifled their growth. What a fan could always count on is their high energy live performance and At The Paradiso captures that along with some loud singing fans that know every word. There are also two new solid tracks added to this release but fans of the band will take pleasure in the concert recording and remember why they loved Live in the first place!

Key Track: "I Walk The Line"

Band With Similar Fire: Everclear
