5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Live Albums I Have Ever Heard March 31, 2005
Format:Audio CD
"No Sleep Till Bedtime" is a MUST for Strapping Young Lad fans. How could you ever go past this CD? It's got most of the best songs taken from their first two studio Albums "City" and "Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing", the production is very good for a Live Album, and when you listen to it you can actually feel the energy too.

The most standout tracks on here would be obviously "All Hail The New Flesh", "Oh My F*cking God", "SYL", "In The Rainy Season" and the two bonus studio tracks "Japan" and "Centipede". The intro "Velvet Kevorkian" is also amazing, and quite different from the original song found on their Album "City". I would say it's actually better, just not as 'in-your-face' type of thing.

The songs "All Hail The New Flesh" and "Oh My F*cking God" along with "Home Nucleonics", all pack alot of punch. These are the main songs to me, that when you listen to them you can just feel the energy of the Live concert. It's almost like being there in person. That's what every Live Album should try to capture, and this Live Album does it very easily.

The song "Far Beyond Metal" as well, is a tongue in cheek song aimed at the taste in music Devin Townsend had when he was growing up. When you first hear it, you'll possibly think that it's the worst song on this Live Album. But listen to it a few more times and it's sure to grow on you. I've heard also that Devin actually makes up the lyrics as he goes along, which is kind of amazing when you hear the lyrics and how he sings them.

The bonus studio tracks "Japan" and "Centipede" are both pretty slow tracks, yet still intense in the traditional Strapping Young Lad way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good thrash, I expected more though September 21, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Devin Townsend was right when he said he was a better studio musician as opposed to live. I thouroughly enjoy Strapping Young Lad's studio material, and although this album was good sound quality for a live recording and still reminded you of who the band playing was, this simply did not measure up, lacking real emotion and cutting the standards even shorter by being such a short recording and with not enough of the greater SYL tracks included.
The band themselves are good musicians, with Devin Townsend's voice being typical and well-fitting to the thrash metal genre mixed with his interesting sense of humor in his lyrics and his rhythmic guitar playing. The bass doesn't stand on it's own but adds a certain thickness to the songs that would be extremely noticeable were it lacking. The weakest part of the live band is the keyboards, whose parts are limited, with the strongest point being the earth-shaking, speed assault of the drums. The drummer does an amazing job of the double bass pedal, kicking out insanely fast rhythms while using the other side of his brain to pound out a completely different beat with his hands. This is one of the truest signs of a standout drummer.
The live album still lacks conviction though, leaving the listener wanting more of the higher quality tracks, such as "Underneath The Waves" and "Room 429". The tracks that DO grab you by the short-hairs on No Sleep Till Bedtime are "All Hail The New Flesh", "S.Y.L.", "Japan", and the best track included, "Far Beyond Metal" with its humorous cheese-metal solo and lyrics.

Truly great live show. The sound quality is great and raw, the vocals are terrific, the riffs are amazing and the power displayed by this band live is a true force. Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars incredible July 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I read somewhere that Devin Townsend thought himself more a studio as opposed to live musician. That makes no difference whatsoever to this live album - the intensity is jaw dropping. SYL is not the kind of the music to have playing in the background while you do something else - it is so powerful and complex it demands your whole attention. I'll often find myself standing rooted to the spot for thirty minutes when I put on their music - this album is especially the case. I also think S.Y.L sounds a lot better here than on the original version. I agree though, would have liked to see Underneath the Waves on this. If you're already a fan of SYL as you probably are, you'll know how intense they are and are probably wondering if it really is worth getting this album - let me just say that I have listened to City over and over, and seen the band twice and this STILL surpassed my expectations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Far beyond metal, man. October 30, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Firstly, do not think this live album is just a SYL accessory designed to milk money off their fans. This is awesome. Even if you already have City and Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing, this is an extremely powerful and entertaining album. Their live sound is lush and frenetic, and their use of samples and harmonies is mind-boggling. Best of all, there are two truly excellent semi-unreleased bonus studio tracks, Japan and Centipede, which make this nine track "EP" as long as their other albums. TRACK LISTING: Velvet Kevorkian, All Hail the New Flesh, Oh My ******* God, Home Nucleonics, SYL, In the Rainy Season, Far Beyond Metal, Japan, Centipede. If you haven't bought the Ocean Machine album yet, DO SO.
