Live In Chicago 12.19.98 at The United Center


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

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.

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.

This is a good CD, not great, but a good CD. It isn't Red Rocks or Listener Supported, or any other bootleg show that can be found on the net. I am one of those fans that must own every CD released no matter if its "bad" or not. I own several bootleg live shows, and I have found a lot of them to be better than Listener Supported or Red Rocks, but then again that is my own opinion.
I have to admit with others who have reviewed this album in that Watchtower is getting a little bit too reduntant, and this was not the best of the performances I have heard. I have to disagree with the idea of splicing certain shows and adding just "the cream of the crop" defeats the whole purpose of putting out a live show, since it would not be consistant, crowd noise here, crowd noise there...it would be extremely weird.
You decide in the end whether to get this CD or not, in my case I like it, but I like all of their recordings so my opinion is a bit biased.
I would of have liked to seen Dancing Nancies on this one, or Rhyme and Reason on this CD, but you do the best you can, right?

From "Red Rocks" to "Listener Supported" to "Live at Luther College," the Dave Matthews band has put out so many live CD's. This one is their fourth, and their fifth is coming out in about a week (I can't wait.) This is a great CD with awesome concert rarities such as "Last Stop," "What Would you Say" and "So Much to Say." It's funny, those are some of their most popular songs and some of them have just made it onto a live CD for the first time. The performance is great. The set list is somewhat weak. There are too many intro's. "Listener Supported" has the best set list, "Red Rocks" the best performance, making this their worst live album as a band. Don't get me wrong, it is still marvelous to isten to, but compared to the others, it does seem a little lackluster. The songs, however, are great. Tim Reynolds, Victor Wooten, and the band play their hearts out. It's cool to see awesome guest performers.
Last Stop (10 of 10)- This song is ten times better than the studio version, and to hear it live for the first time is really cool. The song it so dark, and so fun to listen to.
Don't Drink the Water- (10 of 10)- This version is actually better than the version on "Listener Supported." It is darker, and the band plays really well. Tim' electric guitar doesn't hurt, either.
#41- (11 of 10)- This version isn't as good as "Listener Supported" but this song is wonderful no matter which way you slice it. The lyrics are great, Leroi kicks [rump] on the sax and Victor Wooten plays a killer bass solo.
#40- (8 of 10)- This is one of my favorite little songs on "Listener Supported," and it's ashame it's hardly here on this album, becuase it is a truly beuatiful song. The lyrics are fantastic. Download the full song. It's worthy of eventually being put on a CD.
