Editorial Reviews

Welcome to the newest installation by Sleepytime Gorilla Museum! Collected here are 16 enchanting live specimens gathered from various environments, over the course of several years of exhibition, experimentation, and performance.

The administrators of this showing include guitarist/vocalist Nils Frykdahl as well as bassist and instrument creator Dan Rathburn, who for many years were a part of the amazing group, Idiot Flesh. Joining these fine young gentlemen is Carla Kihlstedt (Tin Hat Trio/Charming Hostesses) on violin and voice. Additionally, we have Moe! Staiano, pounding away on various scraps, artifacts, and industrial waste, and drummer Frank Grau (Species Being).

The rooms of the museum are occupied by an array of traditional orchestration, found object percussion, and home made instrumental creations. These spaces are filled with sounds and sights that have captivated audiences from coast to coast.

Songs about a baby doctor, the apocalypse, homicidal feuding neighbors, and the evil of sleep. A request for stolen tank tops and the destruction of a Doobie Brothers' album. This is what you paid your money for.

Track Listing:

1. Sunflower (ssh! This is it, man. This is What you Paid Your Money For)
2. Bring Back the Apocolypse (Fast and Slow)
3. Red Moon (in Two Places at Once: Left, Right)
4. Play the Hits (a Lament)
5. All you f***s in the Back Just Rock
6. Sleep is Rong (Finally)
7. Celtic Patchen
8. Diabolus in Extremis ad Infinitum (a Halloween Invocation)

Sleepytime Gorilla Museum is the Gothic Prog Extravaganza made up of members of Faun Fables, Idiot Flesh, Tin Hat Trio, Charming Hostess, and etc etc. Frontman Nils was also the demonic Genius behind Idiot Flesh, and just like that band, SGM puts on an amazing live show. I saw them last night for the 2nd or 3rd time, and decided to pick up the live cd. Listening to it today, it was a bit disappointing, as the music is mostly good, and but the recording quality is mediocre, and a lot of the subtleties get lost in the static. Why couldn't they have used soundboard tapes for this? Instead it sounds like some guy in the audience had a low-quality tape recorder.
Also, it doesn't really capture the live experience. Some of the quieter moments sound like dull filler without the accompanying visuals. SGM aren't just a band, their a musical theatrical performance ensemble, a little travelling mutant vaudeville troupe. The dull moments on cd are accompanied live by contortions and dances and all sorts of odd and entertaining behavior. This isn't a bad cd, but I'd recommend getting the studio album and seeing them live instead. How about you guys release a live DVD????

ABSOLUTELY NOT for the casual fan. This has many between-song interludes and the sound quality is sketchy. However, I have to admit I love it. It's not a bad representation of the band, and includes songs that didn't pan out and will never get studio treatment.
The real highlights for me were "Babydoctor" and "The Neighborhood." Both tunes are stellar pieces. The extended intro and slight reworking of "Sleep Is Wrong" was also a real bright spot in my day.
Think bootleg and this is a great catch. If you want Rush's "Exit...Stage Left" this is NOT for you.

I was really looking forward to this CD. Finally, something new from this great band. There's a few great tracks on here, some "filler" as well. It does give you the feel of one of their live shows...but...BUT...
My main gripe is that the recording quality is really poor. I have bootlegs that sound better than this CD! Seems like it should've been sold at a reduced price considering... I was suprised to read that a couple of the shows included here were recorded to 16-track...they all sound like they're recorded on a portable Minidisc Player by someone in the auduence. Hmm... Just disappointing from people that I know are capable of such great production work.
If you're not a HUGE fan, I'd unfortunately have to recommend that you just wait for their next studio release (if there's one planned)...which I'm sure will be excellent.

This is a low-quality bootleg sounding cutup of live shows. There are only a few good tracks on here, the rest is just inbetween noises (which can be ok). I have many bootlegs and there are much better versions of the songs that are on here. Although I do love Moe!'s song on here and "the neighborhood". But there are so many live classics missing from here; including a cover of This Heat's SPQR, The Donkey-Headed Advisory of Humanity Opens the Discussion, Flinch, The Creature, Cockroach... But hopefully those will appear on their next album.
Stick to the First album (which is GREAT!) and bootlegs you can get your hands on, then try this for any extras you may have missed.
