Strapping Young Lad - _No Sleep Till Bedtime_
(Century Media, 1998)
by: Adrian Bromley (9.5 out of 10)
Those of you who get all hyped up with SYL should know what you're getting with this live effort the band recorded during a week-long tour in Australia. It fucking rules! Madman Devin Townsend has helped capture a solid live recording showcasing the many facets of this band. Live material from the sophomore effort _City_ ("Oh My Fucking God", "SYL" and "Velvet Kevorkian") sounds blistering, especially Townsend's vocals and Gene Hoglan's drumming. New unreleased live song "Far Beyond Metal" kicks ass as do the two new studio efforts "Japan" and "Centipede". One great quality about this record is that it captures the live audience perfectly -- sounds like it was a zoo 'down under.' I only wish I had been there. This rocks!
