    Even when Wire focuses on their not-so-classic material, they sound great in a live environment.

    The loss of its uplifting chorus harmonies deprives "Map Ref" of its sunny appeal, but "Two People In a Room" bowls along briskly with dissonant monochord tension.

    Some of the finer details might be lost on the live presentation, but it's nothing to cry about when you consider that you're hearing Wire in their natural habitat.

    Something of a head-scratcher, showcasing neither one of their best performances, nor really one of a highest quality-recording.... Fans looking for cuts from the band's early work are better steered toward their Legal Bootleg series. [Mar 2012, p.87]
