  1. I wonder how this album would sound with today’s studio tech? Here’s my take. Giving the game away- ultimate powerhouse showcasing the whole band. A classic riff. Tribe – chance for Dave to “Shine”. Good dual lead guitars here, and a very interesting chorus. Changing Places – good riff & many bands around at this time have sounded similar during the opening verse. Nice bass thumping away here. Way of World – one of those songs that can either appear ok, or completely brilliant, depending on your mood. Love the chord change in chorus leading from E to D. Cigar Thang – good solid guitar riff – especially love the one at the end just before it fades…. Shine – gem of a song – great guitar break throughout. M. Madness Live – killer track – love how 2nd verse slides to allow best part of the song – where the 2 Pauls do their dampened harmonics thing & let Dave do his legendary scream & now is the chance to hear bass & drums really come in to their own – holding the song together. My only complaint – song fades before the classic live ending can be heard. Wanderer live – for me the star of the show – song has really grown on me – amazing riff on this one – great live song that could have gone on & on, great ending. Body heat – great chorus, simple chords but it works. What I love the most is the bass all the way through, almost a total bass solo. Listen to the notes, very clever playing. M madness – love the 2 guitar licks at the end of the song great finish. All in all a crackin album, hearing the live tracks takes you right back as if you are standing in front of DSB.
