meh. its a live album. I think I only bought it to see how this "new way" of recording live albums sounded. Live is live - you either like it or you don't. I just don't give a toss about live albums anymore. I can appreciste the fact that they put  non-live tracks on though. nice.

Sure there is Tested on vinyl, ask Mr. Keev about vinyl..
Sure, I'd might even sell one too but there's one online too, cheaper...:

I love the mixing and sound of this live album so much.  If Live At The Palladium had this sound, it would be awesome, but the sound of LATP sucks.

Heard it but have never owned it because it was like 26 bucks shipping from australia.  Corporate shrills: grabbing money from kids and producing shitty emo bands is a bad religion

This is a great live album! So unique. At first I thought it was okay, didn't really stand out, and I was a bit disappointed that it was recorded from several shows and not one. But once I read the liner notes and all about the album I realized that this is really something special. I don't know any other live album like this, like I said, it's very unique, and  very sincere I think.

This album should get all the credits since it hooked me up with BR completely. Even though I had heard Infected and Punk Rock Song first, it was Tested that made me wanna listen all albums.
It was my brother who gave me Tested on tape and I couldn't stop listening. All the songs are just brilliant and most of them are my favorite live recordings. Songs as Operation Rescue, Pity The Dead, American Jesus (best one ever), Part III, Along The Way, Sanity, No Direction, Tested, and hell...all of them are just magnificent!

Besides the excellent recordings I really like the complete artwork. I can read all those comments on the shows that are in the booklet over and over again. The artwork is just perfect and there isn't a single thing I can think of that doesn't fit with the rest.
This is definitely the best live album ever, so I was a bit disappointed when listening to 30 Years Live; it just hasn't that same feeling as Tested.

I probably listen to this album the most, since it has so many songs on it that are so good. Not only that but cause the mastering is so good. My friends never know that it's a live album. I would definitely prefer this over All Ages. This includes way more songs than All Ages with a selection from more albums. I can't really pick any favorites but I am stoked about Portrait Of Authority and What It Is since that it's the only time i get to hear a good version of them. I'm also very pleased with Operation Rescue as it ends the right way, without leading into stupid along the way. The American Jesus has Greg Hetson in the Back up vocals, also pretty stoked to get a good quality version of that too. Pity the Dead and Drunk Sincerity are some other ones that I am also grateful for. I could go on...
I want BR to play Anesthesia in every language at every country they go to.

The last album I got, and it's fantastic. I really should listen to it more.
