Format: Audio CD
Michale Graves, former lead singer of The Misfits and staunch supporter of the West Memphis Three, has led a storied career and is definitely not content with artistic mediocrity. Graves has historically been recognized as a aggressive punk rock artist, but has recently evolved into a phenomenal acoustic artist. This transition first manifested itself on Graves' previous effort Illusions, which included tracks written by Damien Echols, one of the West Memphis Three. Illusions is an amazing album and one of Graves' best, but his new live album Illusions Live/Viretta Park stands as the pinnacle of his career musically and may be one of the best live albums in recent memory.

Illusions Live/Viretta Park features 23 tracks, 17 of which were recorded live on April 24th, 2008 at Club Bourbon in New Port Ritchie, Florida during Graves' Illusions tour. The 6 remaining tracks are demos that Graves recorded in Bucarest, Romania, where he was filming scenes for the upcoming film Perkins 14. While the demos are much more polished, the live recordings are exceptional and capture the true essence of being at a live show.

The live tracks are a collection of songs spanning Graves' entire career. Classic Misfits songs that have been reworked acoustically and Graves' newer material have been intertwined throughout the album, giving something for new and old fans alike. Vocally, Graves' voice is superb and absolutely haunting. The acoustic guitar work on the album is top notch and is delivered beautifully by Graves and JV Bastard. While Graves' performance is the heart and soul of the live tracks, the way in which it was recorded is amazing and is the best aspect of the album.

Misfits and Graves fans rejoice, this has a little bit of everything you want! I've listened to it through it's entirety several times and enjoyed every second of it, it's been hard to say that about anything contemporary-ish... The price is a steal for 23 GREAT tunes!

This is Michale's best work since Web of Dharma - which I am sad to say is unavailable and I wish I could get it.

Be warned it is all acoustic versions of songs. Just Michale unplugged with a guitar. Really excellent. Probably not for hard core Misfits fans, but for Michale Graves fans for sure.

Hope to see Michale live on of these days. He sounds better live than in the studio.

I don't have Punk Rock is Dead or Return to Earth, but probably will check them out after getting this.

This is a killer bargain for $6.99 in the mp3 store.

I don't take the time to write many reviews, but I have to make a point to on this one. Michale Graves Illusions Live/Veretta Park is simply amazing. It's all accoustic performances and Michale's voice has never been stronger on a recording before. Graves has developed into an outstanding singer/songwriter.

Michale Graves keeps getting better with age. With every release that he does his work just gets better and better. And his live stuff is the best. If you get the chance see him live

High recommendation for any fans of Michale, The Misfits, or just really good acoustic music. The cd contains live acoustic versions of Michales Misfits and solo songs.

loved it I was lucky enough to get it early from his show in Hollywood and I must say his acoustic songs are great. A must buy for any Graves fan or Misfits fan.
