Hey everybody,
I was surfing youtube the other day and listened to some studio versions of Arch Enemy and Kamelot songs. I own live-cds of both bands and after hearing the studio-songs I really thought: "well, they sound much more powerful live!"
I often made that experience when I went to live concerts of bands of which I heard studio recordings before.
What's your opinion on that? Do you prefer live or studio recordings?

Studio, but it's a very hard choice. Loads of albums I listen to are almost impossible to pull off live (e.g. The Human Equation with Ayreon). I really love live albums though, they're a nice way to listen to the artist in a different way.

The best live CD's surpass studio CD's in terms of power. Between The Buried And Me's "Colors Live" is one of the best examples of a live CD done right, As is any Dream Theater live album.

Although, to contrast, Studio CD's can contain more intricacies than live performances usually.

I love both, but I definitely hear a difference, so in the end I voted for live wink.gif Both are great, in the studio you can do whatever you want, there are no limitations, while live a lot of bands just rock more. One of my very fave albums for example is Delicate sound of thinder by Pink Floyd, I love all of their studio stuff, but this live one smokes them all.

Live DVD and Studio Record...

I don't care for an audio version of musicians playing live without seeing them in action and on the other hand if I can't see them I want to hear them in perfect tonal quality and without any playing mistakes on a record.

I like the studio versions. But live cd-s are more fun in a way (if they are well done and cool concerts)...its cool to hear audience cheering and everything..

I'm with you on this one Zakk... for most of the album....

Althought Marcus as mentioned one of my favorite album of all time wich is Delicate Sounds of Thunder. But in general I prefer studio.

It just struck me here, an intersting point of view is that nowadays with all technology in the studios available, records are made such a different way than they were 30 years ago. Most musicians I admire use to play far better live than on a studio recording, since the feeling is'nt the same after 48 takes.... but this is also bout which kind of music You prefer. I rather listen to a studio album with Madonna than a live one (scary thought, both of them btw.), but in case of players like Pat Metheny, Bonamassa, Blackmore etc. I really prefer the live ones, since those guy's are improvisers and (nearly) always sounds better live, even that the sound may be crappier.

I think you have to have both! haha i love hearing a live CD but mostly because of the interesting things the bands do live that they don't do in the recordings. BUT if those recordings didn't exist you wouldnt know what was different! haha..my favorite example is every Lamb of God Live CD is Randy talking to the crowd its just awesome. Gojira does something similar too. Joe loves to throw in awesome vocals that aren't on the Studio Cd and they just make it so much more awesome!

I voted studio, but there's something very appealing about a great live band that I really enjoy. The thing is Studio music sounds so crisp, clean, fuller, etc.
