A sequel to their first live album, I Heard They Suck Live, They've Actually Gotten Worse Live represents a kind of victory lap for long-running slob-punks NOFX. They've been together for a seeming eternity in a genre that doesn't always treasure longevity, evolving into both elder statesman of and political conscience to a scene full of kids. The joke of the title, of course, is that the band sounds as tight and energized as veteran players should sound. The lowbrow anthem "Amy Is a Crack Whore" and reggae rave-up "Beat the Meek" sound perfectly at home next to political screeds "Murder the Government" and "Yer Wrong." Really, it all just sounds like NOFX.
