Alex Ross points me to a Christgau article that I dont’ necessarily see the genius in, but am definitely glad that I read. Mainly because of this quote:

“But records can’t match the exhiliration of the best gigs. You walk home prepared to live forever.”

Though he calls himself a “record guy,” which is unfortunate to hear from a critic, he really hits the nail on the head with this one. Prepared to live forever. It’s just insane to be able to relate to a comment like that, but it’s true, it’s exactly the feeling that makes a live show great. Not only that you are prepared, but that you feel that you have, or that you will.
