5.0 out of 5 stars Best Christian Rock Band in America Nov. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album put Christian rock on the map. The unsubtle references to the Lord, baptism, redemption, and the struggles of dealing with one's devotion to Christ are all there. With a musical backdrop that has lured people from more primitive tastes to develop a closer, deeper, and in some cases subconscious, relationship with God, this band has done more than an entire generation of televangalists to bring people into the fold.

5.0 out of 5 stars Correction of Reviewer Jan. 30 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The reviewer from 11/14/03 said, "This album put Christian rock on the map." I have been a fan of Live for nearly a decade and I can assure you, as can any true fan, that Live is not a Christian band. From what I've gotten from Live's music is that life can be a very spiritful journey. I think that Live and especially the lead singer Ed Kowlczyk has gone through a lot of spiritual changes throughout their time together, but they should definately not be catorgized as being of one particular religion.
A line from "Operation Spirit" says: "I heard a lot of talk about this Jesus, a man of love and a man of strength. But what a man was 2000 years ago, means nothing at all to me today." Now, I've heard Ed say that Jesus in this song could be replaced by most any spiritual icon and the point remains the same - Find the truths out for yourself, don't blindly follow.
Anyway, just my $0.02.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Live Album (Hands Down) Dec 31 2003
Format:Audio CD
Yes, you read correct. This is my favorite Live album.(Even better than Throwing Copper) Why you may ask? Let me begin by saying this is the first cd I ever owned, so it definitely has a certain amount of sentimentality attached to it. Secondly, this is Live at their rawest form.(Besides when they were Public Affection, but we will not get into that) Anyway, I guess I'm supposed to pick the album highlights but that is too hard since every song is amazing. I think they only had one single off this album which was "Operation Spirit". I remember the video they did for it where they all had their shirts off and they kind of looked like a boy band.(Boy, how times have changed) Sorry about that. If I had to rank all the albums here would be my list:
1. Mental Jewelry
2. Throwing Copper
3. The Distance To Here
4. Birds Of Pray
5. Secret Samadhi
6. V (last and a distant 6)
So if you're looking for something different from the same old boring crap you see on mtv then please do yourself a favor and pick this one up. (Wow, I make a pretty good salesman maybe I should work for Live)
Later

5.0 out of 5 stars great start Nov. 18 2003
By jared
Format:Audio CD
not as good as "throwing copper" or "the distance to here", but still almost a 5-star album and i'll round up. the first 2 songs were on the radio and are great, but the third song is even better. but "mirror song" may be the best one on here; he totally gets lost in the music. the album is full of great lyrics too.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good debut for a great band Aug. 10 2003
By Matt O.
Format:Audio CD
Live is one of those bands which no one has heard of, but every one knows at least one of their songs. The York, Pennsylvania quartet of drummer Chad Gracey, bassist Patrick Dahlheimer, guitarist Chad Taylor, and lead singer Ed Kowalczyk is notoriously unsung, and even more notoriously in need of it. And despite recent midsteps (namely the obscenely bad "V"), their impression can't be denied, and this is the first step of their journey.
Although this is indeed a good rock album by any standards, those fans who cry that this is their best are, to me, the same ones who think Radiohead's "The Bends" is better than "OK Computer". This is obviously a first album, as much of the album is Live trying desperately to find the sound that suits itself best. The first track is probably the best effort. "Pain Lies on the Riverside" introduces us to everything about Live that his fans love: the simple melody with powerful guitars, the use of a recurring water metaphor, and Ed's voice, which is one of originality and power (a power not fully realized until their third album). "Operation Spirit" is much in the same vein, with a better introduction into the lyrical intensity that Ed is capable of though, as before, it is not fully explored. "Beauty of Gray" is a bit on the corny side, and if it were sung by any other band it would easily manifest some giggles, but it works in the hands of Live.
But while the first part of the album is what you expect from a Live just getting on its feet, it too quickly changes pace as the band tries to find a sound. "Tired of Me" is a good song, but the lyrics are extremely repetitive, and after a few minutes, it gets a little, well...tired.

5.0 out of 5 stars A piece of jewelry July 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
I like the clear drum that we hear all the time on this album. "Pain lies on the riverside" is my favorite song with a nice bass arrangement. "Beauty of gray" is so original.
Not a boring moment on this album which is filled with great lyrics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Live was good before they got famous July 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
Live was a good band before they got famous. This is their first album and their best. The other albums are a bunch of junk that tries to be deep, but the songs don't many any sense. 'Mental Jewelry' is good because it tackles some spiritual and social issues without trying to be too deep. The songs are simple and honest and shows what the band was before they got pretentious.
