5.0 out of 5 stars Live performances rule..., 15 Mar. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live From Dakota (Audio CD)
It was about time that Stereophonics released a live album. After a successful 2005 with their latest album, and a heavy, tour-intensive year, it should have been expected that they would release a complete live show on CD. In a way, it's good that they waited till now, because this album contains some of their best material.
Although live tracks have been released as B-sides on their singles, this album gives you the whole Stereophonics concert experience, and the band are on form.
After getting a preview listen of the album thanks to a friend in the business, I can tell you that I have never heard the band so energeticised or talkative. The album doesn't cut out the band's banter with the crowd, and Kelly Jones reveals himself to be a funny guy. And I'll be first in line to buy a copy when it's released.
The band are on fire, revelling in their latest hits like Superman, and Pedalpusher, while waiting till the fianle to show off their greatest work, Dakota.
But the old stuff also gets equal billing here, with Bartender and the Thief and A Thousand Trees really rocking the house. Although disc two does slow the tempo down a bit with I'm Alright, and a sneak preview of their new work in the form of Jayne.
This two disc set is sublime, and endlessly listenable. Without a doubt, Stereophonics have hit their stride in the last year, and really are the best thing in music at the moment.
