    I realize this probably won’t resonate with many of you, but Nine Inch Nails’ And All That Could Have Been is a masterpiece. You know a live album is good when its songs become the definitive versions in your mind. After being exposed to AATCHB, I listen to the same tracks on their respective studio albums and they just don’t sound quite right.
    Some songs by Muse are that way with me. Concert version WAY better than the studio.

    Also I love the Talking Heads and have seen Stop Making Sense, but to me that's not close to their best.

    That's a very good one, as is Frampton Comes Alive and Cheap Trick Live at the Budokan, as well as the aforementioned "The Last Waltz" by The Band.

    Not very many bands perform live as well as their studio cuts. I never cared much for The Who, Led Zeppelin or The Rolling Stones live. The Eagles perform well live, to the extent that they really try to capture the studio cut with the occasional change up in the pacing of the songs.

    The Band’s album is the first I thought of.

    Still, these specific releases delivered some of the most memorable musical moments ever recorded. Here's a look at some of the best (in chronological order).
