AllMusic Review by

It's hard to start listening to a live album by a band who has been one of the most exceptional indie bands around; as it is with live albums, there have been only a few excellent cases since the first live album was released. So it doesn't look good at first. But then again, Bob Hund has been a very powerful live act, mostly thanks to singer Thomas, whose performance on-stage makes the visual side of Bob Hund extremely interesting. And when the music itself is even more enthusiastic than on albums, the concept of a live album might work well. Luckily, Bob Hund has a variable set of songs: there are melodic and slow tunes, and then there are fast and noisy rock songs. A good example of this can be found from the beginning, when the powerful "Nu Är Det Väl Revolution På Gång?" follows the opening classic "Upp, Upp, Upp, Ner." This pattern continues the whole way throughout the album, making both kinds of songs worthwhile. It would be hard to imagine an album full of rock songs like "Min Trampolin" or acoustic tracks such as "Rock'n'Roll Tar Död På Mig." So for listeners' relief, the most important part of a live album -- correct choices for the track listing -- is fulfilled. It's also surprising how hard it is to get into Bob Hund Sover Aldrig. So for new fans of Bob Hund, this might be a perfect chance to get started with the old songs.
