To celebrate my 1000th review, I decided to review an album that I've neglected to review for many, many months now. An album that I've loved ever since I first heard it nearly a year ago but never actually got around to talking about it.

There honestly isn't one bad thing about this album. It's flawless, and easily the best live album ever.
pretty much one of the only live albums I ever gave a damn about.

I am rating this as a 100 because I can see no fault in this performace and because it had a huge impact in my life.
