BOTTLES AND SKULLS: Amped the Fuck Up: CD

Having a hard time with this one here…. See, I really dig the tracks that come from the seven-inch EP from which this was expanded, and I like the added studio tracks as well, but the live stuff, well, is just harshing the whole experience. I’ve listened to this disc no less that twelve times in the last two weeks and I’ve always ended up either turning the volume down or just ejecting the whole motherfuckin’ thang midway through, which can’t be a good thing. I know they probably put it on there as a sort of bonus for the buyer, but the live stuff is just blowing the whole gig. My suggestion is to either buy a copy of the original EP if it’s still available or wait ’til a new full length is available.
