Album 365: Day 12 - Live - Secret Samadhi

Secret Samadhi

Favorite tracks: Lakini's Juice, Graze, merica
Sleeper tracks: Ghost, Gas Hed Goes West

I think that everybody could say  they were introduced to Live through MTV.  It's not a bad thing since the band was pretty good at writing great songs that people liked.  I dug Throwing Copper almost as much as the next guy but Secret Samadhi was a breath of coolness when I first heard it.  I think it was one of those, 'I'm buying this album from Live because I liked their last one'  albums; and it was more than I expected.

The production on the record is really tasty.  The songs are some of the best that the band wrote.  Hooky chorus' and great guitar riffs.  I always liked Chad Gracy's drumming on this one.  Tight and song-serving.  This is an album I always look forward to hearing and I get excited whenever I choose to play it.
