LIVE is misleading.

(4 out of 5 stars)
"These are just three session tracks, live in the studio, a diff'rent studio than the one they recorded Is This It? at. So, don't be like me and expect them to be scorching and seething their way through songs that probably should have always been harder, with an enthusiastic crowd as witnesses. Nah, this is just them in the studio. There may be an extra symbol here or there, and the tone and key may be a bit different as well, but for the most part, you'd really have to listen to both versions to find out and it's hardly worth it, I think. Four stars because the songs are flawless, just like they are on the album."
