Product Description


This collection marks the fifth live Matthews collection in eight years. But while previous surveys have chronicled the band's nascent ambitions (Remember Two Things), initial fame (Live at Red Rocks), solo pretensions (Live at Luther College) and PBS-ready charms (Listener Supported), this double-disc set, recorded at the final show of their '98 tour, seems bent on formally crowning Matthews and company as arena-filling superstars--warts and all.

With a set listing culled largely from the pop-oriented Crash and more internationally experimental Before These Crowded Streets, the proceedings held some promise. But, like most arena bands before them, the DMB generally amps the nuances right out of the mix here. "The Last Stop" recalls where Led Zep's own world-music pretensions led them, while "Pantala Naga Pampa" skirts dangerously close to Kenny G. territory before finding its jazz-funk stride. Though they groove mightily and consistently throughout, the DMB's oft-criticized jam-band ethos often seems strangely burnished and studio-overdubbed to homogenous extremes here. And while legend Maceo Parker's sax further ignites the crowd-pleaser "What Would You Say," as guitarist and frequent Matthews collaborator Tim Reynolds plays guest guitar god throughout, it's Matthews's own shamanic, oft-trancelike vocal excursions that barely keep this one from lapsing into DMB's McLive album. Try Budokan next time? --Jerry McCulley

3.0 out of 5 stars Good...but go for the Central Park Concert Jan. 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
I come from the Philippines where the band is not so well known. I get my CDs and DVDs via the internet. I havent been to any of their concerts so my review is solely based on the music from the CD. This CD rocks if not for the subpar music quality. The sound quality is wanting and a bit muffled, and pales in comparison to the Central Park Concert CD.
Compared to the other live CDs, the jams are a abit lengthy, meandering and, even boring at times. In my humble opinion, the jams in this CD is not its stronger point. Rather its the intensity and the energy that the Band exudes in every number. The first CD (in this 2 cd set) is worth the money already.
I like the more easy and fun feel of the Central Park CD. or the the more musical arrangements and intimate feel of the Red Rocks CD. I am not nitpicking. I love the Band; but their CDs are different every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars DMB AT THEIR BEST!!! Nov. 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
This live recording has the be the dave matthews band's best display of their true talent. Not only is this band underrated because of thier studio crap that is played on the radio, nobody ever listens to their live recordings. This album has many many pluses and is for people that like jam music. I would only recommend this for people that are into the dave matthews band and love their music, otherwise, if you are interested in them i would stick with listener supported or maybe even red rocks. But this is by far the dave matthews band's best live recording.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still haven't release a great live album Oct. 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
Dave Matthews Band is one of the best bands to come out of the nineties. Too bad they haven't released a good enough live album to prove it. There is something not quite right with each of the live albums released to date.
One of the biggest problems with this album is that sound mix is horrible. The audience is way too loud. There are portions where you can't hear a guitar solo because the audience noise overwhelms it. Also, the sound quality isn't that good and there are periods where there is a background buzz.
The other problem with this album is that the concert starts out strong and then starts to fade. Almost the whole first CD is a a rocking jamfest. But things really slow down for most of the second CD. A lot of the songs are just poorly done, noisy copies of the superior studio album versions.
Maybe the problem with the Dave Matthews Band live CD's is that they release full concerts, instead of picking the best material from several concerts. Also, if you buy the 4 live CD's released to date, you get a lot of repeated material. Some songs, like All Along the Watchtower are on 3 of the CD's.
So, this isn't a bad CD and neither are any of the others. They are all just disappointing. You could take all the live CD's and pick out the best material and end up with a great live album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rocks! Aug. 7 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This cd is incredible. It shows the best of all of the members, especially Tim Reynolds, who joined the band for an amazing set on electric guitar. Boyd Tinsley has an amazing solo in Lie In Our Graves, as well as Jimi Thing, and the sax on So Much To Say is great. The band shows a lot of energy on the opener The Last Stop, including Stefen Lessard, playing bass excepionally. One of the best songs is Don't Drink the Water, but Stay (Wasting Time) is an excellent way to end Disc One. Dave Matthews Band did great with #41, putting the solo to Boyd, and with good reason. LeRoi's solo during Jimi Thing is awesome, and the crowd goes crazy at his interpolation of Crash. This cd, in my opinion, has the best version of All Along the Watchtower that DMB has ever played. Too Much is always a good song to play live and this was no exception. The almost eleven minute version of The Last Stop is incredible. The only regret is that Ants Marching wasn't played, which is the all-time greatest Dave Matthews Band song. This is a great cd, go buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Maker is an awesome song!! July 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is another of DMB's live offerings. All of them are really good so you should just pick one that has the most songs that you like. This one has some kick arse jams and the Maker, Watchtower, and DDTW are exceptional. Energy seemed a bit lower for this show and this is one of the more chill shows but is great none the less.

Okay this review I'm only gonna write about Tim bc theres about a million other reviews of the CD. So Disclaimer
This is my personal feeling about Tim. This CD has the best guitar solos on it so far for DMB. But Tim does this wicked annoying scratchy thing. Dave will be in solo part of a song and all you can hear from Tim is ( SKKREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEECH! SCRATCH!) It sounds good on Dont Drink the Water but that's about it. On a brighter note he has his best solo ever on Lie in Our graves. Xmas Song is cool too because its just Dave, Carter on brushes, and Tim playing a bluesy solo clean (YES NO DISTORTION!!!). Mitch Rutman and Victor Wooten jam for almost 6 minutes on the Maker, some awesome blues there. Victor's solo on #41 is good bc he sounds like he's making fun of the music almost.
There are better DMB live CD's then this, Red Rocks, Listener Supported... But if you play guitar this is a good CD for you.
