    The band's wild woolliness seems strangely AWOL. [Nov 2006, p.118]

    I agree with Pitchfork on this one. I expected more of a "jam" sound on this live set, similar to what they did in the "Austin" performance -I agree with Pitchfork on this one. I expected more of a "jam" sound on this live set, similar to what they did in the "Austin" performance - they rocked it far beyond any of their albums. This one sounds like a good album, but "live" -- well, a lot of the stuff one would expect live is absent. It only succeeds in thrilling towards the last 3 or 4 songs. Guess maybe it took them that long to warm up, but then the concert was over with. But overall, a great album -- it just could have been meatier (and I'm a vegetarian!). Full Review »

    I love this band, but hate some of their production on their earlier albums (reverb is very much overdone). So I had to put up with I love this band, but hate some of their production on their earlier albums (reverb is very much overdone). So I had to put up with production that didn't heighten good songs. Z was different though, and hit everything right. To hear great sounding, expanded versions of "Run Thru" "Lowdown" "Dancefloors" and "One Big Holiday" being torn up by this band is a pleasure. Just like the last Wilco record, this gives me a different aspect to songs I already knew and gives them greater depth and appreciation. great live album from the greatest live band out there.

    Fantastic record, I'm not a huge fan, but this is one of the best live albums in the last 20 years.
