i always like live albums because you're basically getting a greatest hits and will have some sort of solo spot. in this case, all members get a spot

exactly. some bands sound EXACTLY the same on a live recording, minus crowd noise, and you don't feel the energy. this one is really intense throughout.

ok, ok. this is my 3rd and final vote in this thread for favorite album

Snowball of doom is awesome...

Also, Street Lethal (the 1st one) is perfect, but the sound is somewhat crappy... id love it if they re recorded it

Absolutely agree, even so, it's defintely #1 for me. Live: Extreme Volume is up there, too.

Re: favourite Racer X album?

As a racer x fanatic i have to have my say here, lol. For an all out in your face blazing 80's shredfest buy Street Lethal, Live extreame1 or 2. you won't be disapointed. The second moment of glory as to come from second heat, it's more melodic but still awsome. Technical difficulties is awsome as well but more modern sounding. Superheros and Getting heavier are good but get all the other albums first.

"Technical Difficulties"

As good as the early albums, but musch better recorded and sounding, and with better songs (IMO). Not a weak moment from start to finish on this one.

If you can overlook the mediocre production, Street Lethal is a great start. But TD is very good all-around (songs, production, and playing). Of course, the playing is a given on any Racer X album.
