Sound: Live is a band that went against the flow of the dominant grunge scene by creating softer, more listenable music than its average mainstream competition. On this album, Live displays their greatest musical performance, in terms of it's other albums. Throwing Copper is not as heavy as it's predicessor, Secret Samadhi, but the band rocks with modern rock hits "Lightning Crashes", "Selling The Drama", "All Over You", and "I Alone". // 10

Lyrics: Ed Kowalczyk sings his heart out on the hits "Lightning Crashes" (which stayed at #1 on the Mainstream Charts for 10 weeks) and "I Alone", as well as virtually every song on the album. It is easy to see why Live has sold over 13 million albums to datefrom this album alone. // 9

Overall Impression: The group supplies the hits, the hooks, and the results (8 million albums later). Just about every track is refreshing and foreshadowing of the fall of grunge by the late '90s. This is the multi-platinum album that defines Live as the powerhouse they were in the grunge-dominated '90s. // 10
