5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Machine Head, November 13, 2012
This review is from: Machine F**king Head Live! (Audio CD)
From day one, this has been a band all about live performances. I've thought for years that it just didn't do these guys justice that their only live album was Hellalive, which heavily featured Supercharger. For one, that's my least favorite MH album, and for another, they've put out three albums since then that have defined their career. From the Ashes of Empires, The Blackening, and Unto the Locust needed to be captured live, and this CD does it in grand fashion. Loud, intense, and highly interactive, this is Machine Head in their true element, doing what they've always done best...absolutely slay crowds.

Made up of songs from a variety of shows, you get something from each one of their albums. The crowds are amazing, the performances are damn near perfect, and it reminds me of some of my favorite experiences seeing them live. Come to think of it, not being able to see footage from these shows, as in having an accompanying DVD release, is my only critical thing to say. I would love to see some of this stuff, particularly the high-energy pummeling of "Aesthetics of Hate" and the crowd participation on "Darkness Within." And of course, thrash-fests like "I Am Hell" and "This Is The End." Then, there's one of my favorite tracks from the new album, "Be Still And Know." Ahh, yes, Machine Head have delivered one hell of a live release here, and if you're a fan of these guys, you won't waste a lot of time getting a copy. Machine F'n Head, indeed.
