Review: Live in L.A.

This is the last
Death album. Even if Chuck survives his battle with cancer, he
said that Death is dead - so to speak. As the title implies, this
was recorded live in Los Angeles on their final tour. As expected,
the set list leans toward the last three albums. Out of 14 songs
only 4 come from the four classic albums. Two from "Human"
and one each from "Scream Bloody Gore" and "Leprosy".
Of course, I knew this because I saw them on this tour. My reservations
about the set list aside, this is a good live album because it
is live - no overdubs, and - oh my gosh - you can hear the crowd!
What a novel idea! Chuck uses his new vocal style throughout,
so the old songs sound a bit different.
If you liked the later output from Chuck & guests, then this
is a great disc. If you only like the old stuf, go pick up "Ultimate
Revenge 2" for some raw live Death.
