To prove that they actually do have some talent rather than just being made to sound good in post editing?
but can't that be had by going to an actual concert?
Sure but what if you live in a country that they aren't touring in?
To get you to come to one of their shows and actually the "live album" as such no longer really exists as the whole format has changed. Now the live dvds pretty much captures the ball game of the live show and really you can pretty much get anyone you want to see on YouTube today anyway
Some people like the energy of a live performance, but personally, if I wanted to hear all the screaming and yelling during a song, I'd go to the concert. When I listen at home, I don't want to hear a lot of extraneous noise; I want the music without the screaming mob.
So people who can't get to a concert can still have a little bit of the experience?
To hear what a band really sounds like without it all being sweetened up in the studio. I prefer live albums but now I tend to buy the live DVD, may as well see it too.
In Korn's case, to show you how NOT to keep in sync.
I can understand that, if someone went to the concert, they'd want a recording that reminds them of that. Otherwise, I think it's just a money spinning scheme.
If live performances are so good, all they need do is leave all the windows open and record in someone's living room. By the time all the separate tracks are laid down, the background noise accumulated would have the same effect.
