I found it lacking in that frantic youthful energy. Live albums were better for that.
Sure, and it's even possible that Testament's early bootlegs sound better than the original studio recordings: they're *that* bad.

It's just hard for me to digest bad production: it interferes with my ability to enjoy the music. So, even without the youthful energy, FSSD enabled me to better appreciate their work. In fact, I'd say it subsequently enabled me to listen to the original recordings and get more from them.

"You bandits don't just die quickly, I mean, example: This one guy in New Haven, cities burning, people dying left and right, yada yada yada, and this jackhole rushes me with a spoon. A frickin' spoon. And I'm just, dying laughing right? So I just scoop out his eyeballs with it and his kids are like, 'waaah', he can't see where he's going, bumping into stuff, maybe you just had to be there. Anyway, the moral is, you're a total bitch." - Handsome Jack
