It's a live album full of their newer stuff, with a second album of remixes and unreleased stuff.

The live versions of their new stuff still don't impress me. VNV Nation's new stuff just doesn't seem as intense as their older, pre-Futureperfect stuff. Even Futureperfect had a bit of punch to it. It seems like their music hasn't been as moving lately. It seems like their songs are very static now. Before a song could start out with a nice, mellow intro, then descend into chaos and vice versa. Their newer music stays the same all the way through. It sounds very carefully measured, and very mechanical. And here I am criticizing an "industrial" band for sounding mechanical! I certainly don't blame them for changing. Obviously nobody should be expected to remain artistically static their entire career. Some of their hooks are still nice. The songs just seem to have lost that dynamism of the PTF2012 and Empires era. Am I the only one who feels this way?
