Machine Head. Live album. Do you care? If you do, than you’re the kind of overweight, white suburban 30-something who wouldn’t know the meaning of “overstaying your welcome” from Tony Martin-era Black Sabbath albums. Seriously, if you announce (in a “scary intimidating metal voice”) a one-sylable song title like “Old” in the form of “this song is called ooooooolllllldddddd-duh,” then you really need a lesson in irony. Haven’t these guys watched This is Spinal Tap, for shit’s sake?
