Funny given that most of their studio versions beat the live ones. Besides, Empire of the Clouds, regardless of being not a live song, has the single best chemistry of any song ever recorded. Everyone is doing their part and it works insanely. Live sound is an afterthought.
Oh I beg to differ since I have a rather large library of their bootlegs. For each and every song that works live there are better live versions than the one on the record. Especially when we dwelve into crap production albums (see my post above)
