Blue Oyster Cult — On Your Feet Or On Your Knees. The 14-minute version of 7 Screaming Diz-Busters is a trip.

Pat Benatar — Live From Earth (mainly because it's got the studio tracks Love Is A Battlefield and Lipstick Lies which aren't on any other album)

Live albums are not really my thing. The crowd noise, the idiots screaming for attention…I just want to hear the band.

I'm the same way. There are some bands and groups that I don't really care for the live albums because it just doesn't sound right. Garth Brooks, Jimmy Buffett, Coldplay, Train, Genesis, Phil Collins, Simple Minds are just a few examples of some bands that have awesome live shows and live albums. While others like Imagine Dragons just don't work well since their live versions of their songs are drastically different than their studio recordings with tempos being offbeat and off cue, you can't sing along. The best type of live album isn't the screaming but rather the audience participation when they sing along to the songs, that is what sends chills down my spine, when they sing along to the chorus. This can be felt with live acts like Garth Brooks - Double Live album and Jimmy Buffett - Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays album.
