    This band rules. These CD's don't quite capture how awesome their live shows are, but if you like great Americana, go ahead and pick this up. Some of the catchiest songs ever written.

    I only give this a 9 and not a 10 because i would have like to hear more banter.. Rhett is funny :)

    Are they out of their freaking heads? Where's "What We Talk About"? Whatever. They're an amazing band with great Americana tunes, and the album is great (they new it was gonna be a live album and they still couldn't play...) sorry. It was still great without it.

  1. Quite simply, Alive & Wired captures a great band on a great night.
  2. While the lack of onstage banter is welcome, Alive & Wired would have benefited from fewer songs and more space.
  3. If you're an Old 97's fan you've been waiting for this. If you're not, you just might be when it's all said and done.
