business is business

really like this band and was happy to see this live offering, the sound is marginal at best but my boy's vocal performance is horrid, dont know what the problem was this night or why anyone would even try to sell this (emusic only, indeed), but the point is the band is losing potential fans just having this here. glad it wasnt the first I heard of them. otherwise I wouldnt have given them a real listen, and would have missed experiencing Reconstruction Site, one of my top 5 albums of the past 10 years, it is truly wonderful.

Awful sound

West7side

I agree with Zarcom. Great band, but awful sound

Poor Quality

Zarcom

I like the band but this sounds like it was recorded through a tin can!

Aww, c'mon!

I'm with everyone else here. I came to download "Watermark" but it's no longer available. Much as I love The Weakerthans, I don't think I'll be downloading this album. I'm not a big fan of most live albums, and this one isn't even very good quality.

A better intro than none

Liam665

REVISED: It looks like the pinheads at Anti/Epitaph have belatedly returned the Weakerthans to emusic, which makes this particular recording a fans-only affair. It is not the best intro to the band--sound quality and performances are both middling to bad. Still, if their official albums get pulled again, and you are new to the Weakerthans, download "One Great City!" "Plea From a Cat Named Virtue," "Utilities," and "Reconstruction Site." That should give you a good taste and then you can decide whether to seek out more elsewhere.

Stop shrinking, emusic!

TwoHeadedBoy

seriously. emusic is whittling away at the albums I want to buy. a month ago there were 3 Weakerthan albums and now there is just this live one. same thing with other bands like Say Hi To Your Mom. twas there, now its gone. why does this happen?

poor audio quality

Download a single song and check the quality for yourself before burning a lot of downloads on a sub-par recording of an otherwise fine live set.

I'm a huge Weakerthans fan, and I was excited to see this show up on eMusic. (Though I wish eMusic had recorded the Cat's Cradle show also). The set list is a good mix of the Weakerthans library, including Utility (which is a newer song and isn't available on any release). Though it seems odd to open with One Great City! which is clearly a song meant as an encore. My only complaint is the audio quality of this recording isn't as good as other eMusic Live recordings I have heard. And the singer, John K Sampson, sounds either very tired or sick. While he is a very calm stage personality (especially in contrast to the rest of the band) he sounds particulary emotionless and de-energized in this recording. But for the fan, it's worth the download to add to the library. If you are new to the Weakerthans, check out Reconstruction Site instead (a phenomenal album).
