The Album That Started It All

Mental Jewelry is such a stripped down version of Live that it almost doesn't sound like Live at first listen. With intense religious and political lyrics you feel the passion in each word of a young Edward Kowalczyk. The music is raw, the sound is unlike any other Live album, and still a gem. Listen to "Mirror Song" and "Pain Lies On The Riverside" for a great take on what this album is all about. Highly Recommended for Live fans.
