I actually don't think they're the rip off that you make them out to be.  Very obviously influenced by Glassjaw, but I think they're doing enough of their own thing to make their own mark.

There's not a single soundwave, that even the slightest, resemble the amazing band Glassjaw.

This is just horrible.

I think the person that brought this band to sharing lungs was Starz, thank you so much dude.

Letlive is the best new band around, for me. Yeah, they sound a lot like glassJAw. Of course, they also put a lot of their personality into it. I love their tunes to death and gave me what I haven't seen in a long time, a "new" band with a new record that is exciting from beggining to end. they do what they do with such desperate passion it's admirable. I think they have a few ties with thrice, thursday, and of course, the deftones.
      The album they did before has some good tracks, too (it was an entirely different line up sans Jason, the singer), I'd suggest you to youtube Stigmother. And they have been playing a new song live that's also on youtube. Whenever I come across a decent sound, i'll post.

yeah starz probably was who brougth them up, props to him.

most definiltly in my top 20 rock albums from 2010. even maybe top 10 i dont know.

the refreshing feeling is totally related to the yearning for glassjaw.

well thank you Slacker for starting this thread. I remember listening to their last album a few years ago, and I honestly wasn't a fan. But this... wow, it's basically the tits.

saw them yesterday and they were awesome! totally different from the bands they tour with and so much more innovative!
I filmed the whole set because there aren't many videos of them on youtube and they need the promotion!

so check it out on my youtube channel

Thank you dawg, I check letlive on youtube Almost weekly, this is a blessing. I had yet to see a quality recording of muther and renegade 86 (until now). It's a pity they didn't play the new song there, I want to hear it with decent quality so bad.

Can I ask you to upload this files on mediafire?

Let me know if this Eq sounds better: http://www.mediafire.com/?j774cs78q3fp7fz

the whole set is too big to upload. it's already taking me hours to upload to youtube! over 2gb of video!

I hear no big difference in the audio :)
but you might have noticed that there is a little cut when they get back in during Casino Columbus, accidently hit the stop button on the cam :D

for some stupid reason youtube makes the video and sound run asynchronous! anyone got an idea why? I didn't change anything, direct input from the cam

With three bonus tracks:
Hollywood, and she did
Lemonparty (this one will be a hit on this board for obvious reasons)
This mime (a sex symbol) --> this one produced by brett gurewitz

I thought they were pulling out more b-sides, un june last year it seemed they were unleash many of them soon. It seems that they kept them for a new record.
