|Jan Kuehnemund is the only original member here with three newbies. Those expecting the lush melodic AOR/Pop Metal ditties of the original band may be disapointed. This is more of a straight ahead, no frills chick rock affair that unoriginal and uninspiring. Check out the first two Vixen releases instead. 2/10|

|Christ, what a load of rubbish! I know a lot of people didnt like Tangerine, but that was certainly more of a Vixen album than this bland piece of crap. The vocals are weak as hell, and flatter than roadkill. I would say the production was weak, but I dont think there was any. And just to add insult to injury, the songs themselves are just dull and unispired! Thank god I was given my copy free!|

|I was hoping for a good comeback and got disappointed. Poproxx and CC are right, if you lay your hands on this cd, don't be expecting a return to Vixen's old style. I'd rather describe this as modern pop that has not very much in common with hardrock/aor. Jan barely shows her guitarplaying skills and Jenna's vocals seem lame when compared to Janet's. I listened to the album 3 times and unfortunately there was no single song that I'd call catchy, maybe except for No. 11. Shame, shame, shame.|

|The three comments above are 100% accurate and I don't expect there will be anything positive to say about this one from anyone. How they got away with calling this Vixen is just disrespectful and a real shameful way to lump this heap of shit in with an otherwise fine discography. There is not a trace of the real Vixen to be heard on this weak sounding heap of trash with dreadful songs, a dreadful sound and an overall feel of dreadfulness. Avoid, immensely.|

|Wow this is a strange CD. In some tracks Vixen seem to get back on the Hard/AOR train that made them famous, but some songs still remind me of "Tangerine", with a garage band feeling. Perhaps a better production, a stronger voice and some keyboards should have made this a better record. Overall, for me it was not so horrible as I thought when I red the comments posted above.|

|Well, yes weak production and flat sound, it´s clear Live and Learn is not what you´d expect from the true VIXEN. It´s similar to the tangerine album if you´d ask me, certain songs are nice and i liked Jenna´s voice a bit and reminded me of Natalie Merchant, ok. Average melodic rock with a weak production. 6.5/10|

|Kai-2 s review i d say it s closest to the truth and Live &Learn aint so bad as described above!the production is ok and the musicianship poor but the songs have some hooks and have their moments although the approach isnt as commercial as expected!of course this is the worst VIXEN release but not a bad one!|

|12 years after my original review, and probably the first time I have listened to it again since then, I decided to spin this again to see if I was a little unfair on it, but no, it is still a turd of an album. Sad to think that this is the last piece of work on Jan's resume does her memory no justice.|
