Napalm Death - _Bootlegged in Japan_
(Earache / St. Clair, 1998)

I am one who holds the opinion that Napalm Death have deteriorated into a weak excuse for a death metal band. I'm certainly not against musical progression -- in fact, I'm into bands like My Dying Bride, Amorphis, Morgoth and Katatonia, who all sound quite different from when they first started. In my eyes, Napalm have progressed much too far and I'm sure they will one day leave most of their fans behind. _Bootlegged in Japan_ features over an hour of music, performing material from the early days to their present record at the time this bootleg was recorded, _Diatribes_. I was very happy, to say the least, that a good amount of old material was included -- tracks such as "Lucid Fairytale", "Control", "The Kill" and "Scum". Also mid-era Napalm was present, including "Mass Appeal Madness", "Suffer the Children", "Unchallenged Hate" and one of my personal faves, "Seige of Power". "Nazi Punks Fuck Off" serves as the lone cover, and it tops off a great (both material and sound wise) bootleg, despite my personal view that Barney Greenway can't sing well in a live environment. Napalm Death fans (both old and new) should pick this up.
