"I first heard of VH in '97 when I heard the rocking We Are on the radio. After that, I went out and got Everything You Want and their first two albums, along with this one. Let me first say that those 3 albums are incredible. Go is a pretty good album as well but not as good as the first 3. I personally love Keith's raspy, rattlesnakey voice and for some reason, probably record company politics, they decided to make Matt's voice the main one, whereas in the past the songs were equally divided between Matt's higher range and Keith's rolling low range. So, on Go, Keith basically only sings harmonies.
Anyways, this Live album is incredible. It honestly is one of the best live albums I know. And I have a wide array of incredible live albums by bands such as Rush, U2, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith etc. This album features incredible songs from their first two albums, including a couple new songs never released on studio albums. They are all awesome! One thing you will not know about VH by listening to their studio albums or their hit singles is that they are somewhat of a jam band. Matt can play a sick lead guitar and a gorgeous acoustic, and they reserve much of their jamming to live shows and dont put much jamming into their studio albums. With this live album, you will see just how much they can fully rock.
The song Wash Away is a killer song, and this album has an incomparible 12 minute rock-out version of it, featuring some of the most amazing, enjoyable guitar and bass solos I have ever heard.
The song Falling Down starts out with one of the most gorgeous acoustic guitar riffs I have ever heard.
I can't go on about individual songs because every single one is so incredible. Get this CD whether you are familiar with VH or not cuz no matter what, if you like any music at all, I garauntee you will love this album."
Sweet live cd

"not only of all that i've bought this year, but a shining example of what a Live album should be like and how much you'll enjoy Live Stages. I rarely if ever buy live albums myself. I don't know why, but i've been a VH fan for more than awhile now. I have 5 of their albums including Go both issues of it. But back to this cd it's rockin from song 1 to the last second of the last song. I can help but feel like i'm in the crowd at one of their concerts which i would love to do sometime. Feeling the music, singing and clapping along with others having an excellent time.
I love Wash Away so much it's like 12 minutes long but i tell you will be wanting more even when that's over. It just grabs and brings you right into the music. I also like how a certain song they have people at the concert singing along with them from the jump. It gives crowd participation a totally new meaning. It is but one of the many songs that i love on Live Stages with another being Japan. I can't help but rave about this cd and will continue to enjoy it even after VH releases their next cd. It will get all the play i can give it. Guitars rocking, drums blazing, singing by a couple members in VH just wonderful.
I'm all about this one you should be too so check out Live Stages."
