Live from Planet X is a live album by British-American rapper/producer MF Doom. It was released via Nature Sounds on March 5, 2005. It was recorded live in San Francisco, California on August 15, 2004.[6] Originally titled Live at the DNA Lounge, the album was initially given away with Special Herbs, Vols. 5 & 6.[2] It includes tracks from Operation: Doomsday, Take Me to Your Leader, and Madvillainy.[6]

Critical reception[edit]

Peter Hepburn, writing for the website Cokemachineglow, gave the album a favorable review, saying, "Not only is Live From Planet X a fantastic album by live album standards, this could stand up against pretty much any rap album released so far this year."[3]

Meanwhile, Stylus Magazine writer David Drake gave the album a grade of "C", saying, "For the discerning hip-hop fan, whatever their musical distribution allegiance, this is a pretty unnecessary (if occasionally interesting) addition to a catalogue already packed with fascinating material."[5]
