This is my favorite of the Cure live records. Recorded in 1984, its sound is really raw, like hitting your teeth into something bloodily but not that painfully.
It is also interesting to hear how Phil Thornalley's bass sound is different from the other two Cure's bass players sound and you can notice the difference (it's good in its own way). I was missing the grind at the end of "A Forest" but that's all.
The songs are all worked in new interesting ways and I found myself grinning a lot listening to this, it is so good.
There is no particular favorite for me, for all the songs are really insanely good; but the ending with "10.15 Saturday Night"/"Killing An Arab" was really impressive, how they managed to work something extra new and exciting into such simple songs.
Brilliant, exciting and impressive. :)
