3 stars A good mix of songs featuring the bands newish live sound in a hardly-live environment (an XM radio studio). The production is crisp and clear, and the band delivers their expected fine performances. However, there are few moments of "live" magic, which makes the recording as a whole come across as very sterile. Moments of improvisation or alteration of songs (which always makes live shows more fun) are absent, which makes owning this one almost irrelevant if one has the studio releases. Still, the fine performances and updated take on older songs makes for a good listening alternative to the studio versions, even if they aren't that much different.
