      Children of Bodom's second live album (2006).

      Having released their first live album at a bizarrely early point, it was a number of years before a follow-up seemed appropriate, eventually arriving with the CD (and later DVD) 'Chaos Ridden Years: Stockholm Knockout Live.' Focusing on the five albums released up to that point with roughly even focus, this should technically please fans of the band both old and new, though the performance itself is somewhat lacking.

      Most disappointing to someone who was turned off by the contemporary studio album 'Are You Dead Yet?', the band retains its near-metalcore style for the performance, which weakens the older songs that used to seem somehow jollier and more reminiscent of eighties speed metal, here rendered more hostile and less melodic than the originals. The band also makes a fair amount of slip-ups and very obvious mistakes, but this isn't necessarily a problem as Bodom's flair for improvisation has always been part of their charm.

      Nevertheless, the tracks devoted to solos on this album are universally appalling and extremely dull, from the tedious and mostly silent drum solo 'Deadbeats I' to the alleged face-off of guitar and keyboard in 'Clash of the Booze Brothers' that's only slightly more palatable, and really has nothing going for it.
