Nofx They’ve Actually Gotten Worse Live Review

They've Actually Gotten Worse Live!
Ah yes, the Nofx live records. They put one out early in their career and it wasn’t half bad, but it wasn’t half good either. In 2007, right around the time I was graduating college, they put out this sequel to their live recordings. They once again go with the moniker that they suck live, and put on a showcase of 24 songs in just under an hour. Unlike other live records from bands, this is a full set, straight through, including the banter that they have between songs. “They’ve Actually Gotten Worse Live” is actually halfway decent, with a lot of songs from every aspect of the band’s career up to that point.

If you’re a Nofx fan already, then you are going to live the record’s production. The production is really good, with my only gripe being a lack of bass on the recording. The treble is turned up, the drums are a bit muted, but the overall fidelity of the guitar work and Fat Mike’s vocals make this a good record to listen to any time. Some of the best tracks you’re going to pull out of this one include, “You’re Wrong”, “Scavenger Type”, “The Longest Line”, “Franco Un-American”, “Monosyllabic Girl”, “New Happy Birthday Song”, and many others. 24 tracks, 59 minutes, and a good overall live record.

If you need a star rating, here you go, 4 out of 5. Nofx “They’ve Actually Gotten Worse Live” can be downloaded here. Enjoy, you bastards.
