5.0 out of 5 stars Fear Live July 12, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I just saw Fear last night- Jan. 23, 2004, for the first time, and despite being afraid at first... I must say it was a blast, and as shows tend to go, I was reminded what it was I like so much about all these songs. The songs on this album were played with the same fist-pumping greatness as they were last night, and that's excellent for both the album and the fact that it was Fear still kicking out what the BYOW drummer would put in terms, a "tight sound." The only problem with the show last night is Fear didn't play long enough of a set since shows in Tempe have to end at 12:00 I think, while the set on this record goes a ways past 12:00. The slight problem with this album is that is was intended for an L.A. radio show, and so the band held back from swearing and censored themselves a little, while if you really did go out and see them, theres gonna be some swearing, and that's part of the songs. You've got "I don't care about you..." and you know what is said next, but they leave it for you to fill in the blank. There it is. Now I'll be "lee ving" this for you to decide if you really need this or to just go with the studio versions, which, in my opinion, are highly inferior to these great, tighter-packed, faster, and overall better versions of the great songs in the Fear catalog.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fear at their best August 25, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The first time I ever heard Fear was seeing them on a re-run of Saturday Night Live when I was quite young and I was immediately drawn in by the speed, sloppyness, humor and energy (hell, they brought their own punks with them).

Needless to say, this was the obvious choice for my first Fear record and it is hands down the best. It is a bit of a bummer that they had to clean it up for the radio broadcast, but the songs have so much more of the raw energy that lacks on their over-pollished studio albums (first two are still really good though). And if you've never seen the Decline of Western Civilization, their set is amazing and their audience abuse is side splitting.

I love FEAR. Have since I first heard them about 1980. As great as their records are, they have failed to ever capture the unbelievable power and pleasure of their live set in the studio. So, here's the solution: live in the radio studio.

This has all their early best songs, a virtual greatest hits live.

They also released a live in Portland record and it's also lively and has the humor between songs from Mr. Lee Ving and the piledriver delivery of their music along with those wacky lyrics.

Every punk I ever knew at least knew of FEAR and most thought they were awesome, especially if they'd seen them. I saw them in 1986 and assumed they were already done. No way, they blazed. Saw them at the Flipside benefit at the El Rey theatre in Hollywood in 2001. They virtually stole the show from the other incredible late 70's L.A. punk bands, although the SCREAMERS, CIRCLE JERKS/WEIRDOS (doin' 3 old BLACK FLAG classic covers with Keith Morris singing: ah, a pinnacle of punk perfection) and the ADOLESCENTS and the 2 man MINUTEMEN did not disappoint either.

Saw them in like 2003 or something and let's just say it was kinda scary, they drew a tough crowd, one guy was dragged out by the many bouncers totally lifeless it appeared. Lee Ving seemed like, well, like his dad might look like. Course, I do too now that I'm an old punk of 51. I gotta give him credit for still gettin' up there.

Meanwhile, this album is a must have for all punx. If you own any of FEAR's regular studio albums and like them at all, you gotta get this record cuz it's them with their real sound, the satire, the very clear recording thanks to bein' recorded at the radio station and it was done back in the 80's when they had their yoot. Get it. Right now.
