Just got mine in the mail today and I have to say I love it!!! Musically the band is on fire. I read the mix was terrible and too high on the bass, but I actually love it. All the songs have a nice punch to them.

As for Dave...well, anyone who expected anything different and expected him to actually sing the songs, well you just don't know DLR. The vocals on this album suck!!! It doesn't take away my enjoyment. Eddie still has it, after some sloppy years of playing he really redeems himself here. Eddie, Alex and Wolfgang's playing is awesome and the background vocals here are awesome as well.

My only complaint is really the inclusion of "tattoo". I know it was their single but "You and Your Blues" or "Blood and Fire" would have been better additions imo.

Great setlist though. I with they'd add a little more rarely played Dave tunes though like "Sinner's Swing", "Drop Dead Legs". I also would have loved "Jamie's Crying" on there too.

I really like the CD's though and I'm glad they released it, even if it's only for some of us die-hards.
