I've also been told that the first Mclusky album is just one long take, but I'm not sure how true that is.
I just found the following out regarding Rancid's 2000 self-titled album and this thread was the only place on the whole internet that I could think of for sharing it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rancid_%282000_album%29
"The album was recorded 'live' in the studio, that is, all the musicians performed at the same time, even recording the vocals simultaneously with the music. Moreover, they recorded the entire album at once; rather than repeating each song over and over until they got it perfect, the band played the entire album beginning to end four times, and then kept the best overall take."

Shocked This music does not strike me as the kind that would be easy to do this with. My admiration for this record thus just rose even further.

Didn't At The Drive-In used to do that?

EDIT: To answer my own question, yeah - on their second album http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In/Casino/Out. I think this kind of recording approach works well with punk / DIY bands. I don't know much about Rancid but I would say that it would suit their style in that sense.

Early ATDI is a bit iffy though. Especially that first album (A.T.), unlistenable (word) in places.

May I belatedly add - i heard that about vertigo too and its still a pretty awesome album

PS. St Anger I doubt was recorded in one take or one day and succesfully ruined one of the, if not the best metal band of the 90's for me.

Reuben sound god damn good live so it would work fine for me. The brum barfly set they did had such a perfect sound.

Howards Alias' second album 'The Answer Is Never' was recorded mostly live if memory serves right, and that resulted rather well

and yeah, aside from the heavy precise chunky mega riff stuff.. Reuben's more 'dirty' sounding stuff would sound a lot better with just a live multitrack recording with dubs

Lets not forget, there's a big difference between recording 'Live' and recording at a 'Live Gig'.

The first Primus album was a live album, tis called 'Suck on this'. It's awesome-oh Smile

Never really been able to get into Primus, but yeah.. i'm not really into the whole 'live album' deal.. But some parts multitracked live just puts a nice twist on some of the stuff

They just happen to share the 'number one' slot of my favourite bands along with Sonic Youth, Early Sabbath and about a dozen other bands Very Happy
