I could've put this in a PM to kidhuman, but perhaps my posting it as a thread will convince mabudon to check out some Live music.
My copy of Awake: The Best of Live came in the mail yesterday. This may be the best GH album ever. Not necessarily in the quality of the music, but in the completeness and value. No hit is missing, and two rarities (including their awesome cover of Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line") and an unreleased track from the Throwing Copper sessions are thrown on to fill the CD to capacity.
And the DVD that's included includes every video I'm aware of and several I wasn't.
I've been pondering making a Live mix CD for a while but never did so. I couldn't have made a better one myself. I highly recommend this to everyone.
Entertainment Weekly said about this compilation that the songs were even more unlistenable than when they first came out. This is further proof that the staff of EW are morons who have no taste and love jumping on bandwagons, and humanity would be better off if they were drug out into the street and administered severe public beatings.
