When I first heard about this live studio session I wasn’t too interested. I’m not usually a fan of live albums; live music is made to be experienced in the flesh and to record it is like caging a wild animal – it seems unnatural to me.

That said, hearing Tilian sing over old Dance Gavin Dance favourites is actually pretty interesting and makes the album worth hearing, particularly if you’re a big fan of the band (guilty!). Read my thoughts on the album at Punktastic.

From the review:

The session was recorded live at Pus Cavern studios in Sacramento and the atmosphere of the setting projects brilliantly through the instrumentals. Will Swan’s iconic guitar riffs are raw and punchy, cutting through the mix more prominently than the studio albums.
