Live - Mental Jewelry (192Kbps) [1991]

The Band

Live (also typeset as LIVE) was an American alternative rock/post-grunge[3] band from York, Pennsylvania, composed of Ed Kowalczyk (lead vocals and guitar), Chad Taylor (lead guitar), Patrick Dahlheimer (bass) and Chad Gracey (drums and percussion). Live has also toured with Ed's younger brother Adam Kowalczyk as a rhythm guitarist, as well as with British keyboardist Michael "Railo" Railton, and Christopher Thorn of Blind Melon.

Live climbed from modest modern rock success to the mainstream spotlight worldwide on the strength of their 1994 breakthrough album, Throwing Copper, which has sold eight million copies in the US.[4] Climbing to number one on the 52nd week on the chart, it is the third album to reach the top after spending a year or longer on the chart. The first two were Fleetwood Mac's self-titled album in 1976, peaking on the 58th week, and Paula Abdul's Forever Your Girl in 1989, which holds the record at 64 weeks. The band is most known for their hit singles "Selling the Drama", "Lightning Crashes" (which stayed at the top of Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks for 12 consecutive weeks),[5] "I Alone", "All Over You", "Lakini's Juice", "The Dolphin's Cry", "Simple Creed", and "Heaven". To date, the band has sold almost 20 million copies worldwide.[6]

While Live remains moderately popular in terms of record sales in the United States, much of their current sales come from Europe, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The band has recently enjoyed success outside the United States, especially in Australia and the Netherlands. On Monday, November 30, 2009, guitarist Chad Taylor announced via his personal blog that what was once only a two-year hiatus is more likely a permanent break-up, due to, what he felt, were inappropriate actions by lead singer Ed Kowalczyk.[7

Album Review
Mental Jewelry is the 1991 debut album by Live, an alternative rock band from York, Pennsylvania. Many of the songs on Mental Jewelry are based on the writings of Indian philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti.
Live's debut album was an impressive set of righteous, hard-driving alternative rock; Mental Jewelry was in the vein of such college-radio favorites as U2, but was more vulnerable and less sanctimonious
