Y’know, I think it’s swell that someone has seen fit to release an Ill Repute live CD—considering their longevity and extensive catalog of tunes—but to call it a “full length” is just a tad disingenuous. Out of the eighteen songs on here, there are two versions of “Fill It Up,” two versions of “Greed,” two versions of “Sleepwalking II” and two versions of “In Society,” and four are covers of Ill Repute songs done by other bands. Granted, all are performed quite well, and the sound quality is pretty good, but c’mon, this is the best you could come up with for such a venerated band? You couldn’t come up with a full set? Same goes for the bonus video footage. These guys deserve much better.
