So there I was, with a crucial decision to make. $8.00 for a compilation of songs I already own, or take a chance that this is actually a compilation of all live songs? Let me start by telling you that I am not a gambling man. I'll occasionally splurge every now and then and get a scratch lotte.
So there I was, with a crucial decision to make. $8.00 for a compilation of songs I already own, or take a chance that this is actually a compilation of all live songs?
Let me start by telling you that I am not a gambling man. I'll occasionally splurge every now and then and get a scratch lottery ticket, or bet with friends on various sports events. Hell, I even tried to play that 'Big Game' Pick 6 shit. I didn't know what the hell I was doing. But I don't gamble with compilations.
It started one night in Tower Records. I usually avoid this hell-hole, but it was 11:00 pm and I had nothing better to do. So I'm thumbing through rows and rows of crap (what else would you expect at Tower) when I come across this compilation, "World Warped 3 Live". I wondered to myself, 'Is this really a compilation of 25 live songs?' Too good to be true. I had heard nothing of this comp, but then again who the hell am I? So I was at a mental crossroad, spend $8 on either an awesome, live comp, or a bunch of songs I already own. I walked to the register, CD in hand.
As I got into my truck, I quickly ripped open the plastic to determine if I had made the correct decision. Song 1: Dropkick Murphys: Barroom Hero, its live alright! And damn good! But would this be like other Warped Comp's, some studio, some live? I frantically searched through the remaining songs, and all the way to song 25: Anti-Flag: New Kind of Army, all were live with excellent quality. Success! The big payoff! Fuck the VA Lottery! I am a winner.
So, the best songs? Here we go:
1. Dropkick Murphy's: Barroom Hero: (need you even ask why)
By far this is one of the best comp's ever. You'd be a retard not to buy it. I guess we all need to gamble a little in life, take chances, etc. It can payoff with some good shit to listen to.
