Biography

Reel Big Fish was one of the legions of Southern California ska-punk bands to edge into the mainstream following the mid-’90s success of No Doubt and Sublime. Like most of their peers, the band was distinguished by their hyperkinetic stage shows, juvenile humor, ironic covers of new wave pop songs, and metallic shards of ska. The group cultivated an underground following that broke into ... Read more in Amazon's Reel Big Fish Store

Editorial Reviews

Platinum selling pop-punk-ska act Reel Big Fish, fresh off of Jive Records, claim their independence with a 2-CD/1-DVD best of live collection. The band hopes, with the live album, which includes all the band's hits and fan favorites, as well as a Cure cover and a new, never-before-released song, to please existing fans and win many more new ones.

Fans of Reel big fish and fans of ska and the like, rejoice.
M. Goossens
The sound quality of the recording is great, and hardly sounds like it was recorded live, minus hearing the audience in between songs.
A. Smith
I've seen RBF live, and this CD (with bonus DVD) does one of the best jobs of replicating the experience.

I'm a radio DJ & I've heard and own my share of Live cd's... now if you aren't even a fan of Ska music, you have to give it up to the producer, mixer, & all the production people because this is by far thee best live album I have ever heard! Add to the fact that the band is high energy, funny and damn talented! This is one of the best CD's I own. (plus it's a double disc with DVD) So you just can't go wrong!

On A Side note, if you're a RBF fan, DO NOT GET THE GREATEST HITS ALBUM... the audio suck, and it was made and released with out the bands permission.

If you like RBF you will love this album(s). All their greatest hits and some extensions of Suburban Rhythm (like a Rap, Country, Metal, The Strokes, Disco, and Punk versions) I have this CD through Yahoo's Music Unlimited ToGo service and I am still going to buy this for the DVD.

If you have never heard Reel Big Fish be aware they are explicit. If you can get past that everything is great, the beat is very catchy and you will find yourself humming, tapping, or even maybe singing it through your day getting stares every time you walk by someone singing "I want you girlfriend to be my girlfriend".

No matter how long you've been listening to RBF, this album is sure to please. With awesome recordings and live antics, it appeals to any kind of listener

For older fans, it showcases their best work, with fresh recordings and pleasurable stylized versions of songs. These unique performances give a variety to those who already own the original CDs, and make the purchase worth it.

For new listeners, it invites you to see the breadth of their work. And, like a live show, it builds as it goes on, so listeners are encouraged to listen through to the end. This compelling nature of each track leading to another gives their music a great, fresh feel.

For the low cost of this album, and the immense length of it (over 3.5 hours), including a DVD with an entire show, make this a great deal all around. I can't think of another live album I've enjoyed so much.

The Reel Big Fish have something that makes their live act even more fun than listening to their studio work:

Real and true showmanship.

The on stage banter between the band mates, how they're performances on stage are as tight as you would hear on their studio albums, along with the fact that they just play some fine good music together is well worth picking up this album. Not to mention, as mentioned in another review, the audio quality if EXCELLENT for a live album. It almost sounds like they brought a bunch of fans into the studio and recorded the album with them there. The mix is fantastic and the sound quality is beyond that of many other live albums I've heard in the past.

Some of their bits do come off as being very rehearsed, such as the many versions of SR, some of the between member banter, but still highly entertaining and well worth the money and then some.

Not to mention you not only get some of their best original material along with several of their best covers as well. I can't tell you how many times I've listened to this album and plan to see them again when they come to my neck of the woods in January.

Somehow Reel Big Fish got away without posting a Parental Advisory patch on this album, which is misleading because they swear like CRAZY. I work for a radio station playing an all ska show and these songs would be absolutely great, but I cant find a single song that doesn't slip the F bomb somewhere. Other than that it's completely flawless. They play all of the best songs, the live recording is seamless and the talking between tracks is hilarious.

If you're still not sold after reading the 50 five-star reviews on this page just remember this cd was put out by Aaron himself from RBF after the record companies (3 to be exact) screwed them over. So you're actually helping the band with this album, not just making them "sell out" more. If you're looking for a greatest hits album (which I strongly disapprove of) this album has every one of their best songs, or if you're a huge Fish fan this album will provide an artificial concert for you while they're touring in Japan.

. . .this album is for you. Few live albums catch the true feel of a band in the concert hall, but this one does. I've seen RBF live, and this CD (with bonus DVD) does one of the best jobs of replicating the experience. Okay, I'll admit, Aaron and Scott's "witty" banter gets a little annoying at times (damn, need the Tivo for music), but the energy of the songs makes it worth putting up with. This band like few others know how to engage an audience in a show, and the CD captures that experience as best as is possible. No ska band playing today can match their horns (sorry, Bosstones fans). Don't miss the chance to catch RBF live, but if you can't do that (and even if you do), this is the next best thing to being there and having the F-bombs dropped on you in person.

Oh 'tis true. If that line from this album doesn't sum up this band perfectly. I've listened to all the RBF studio albums but have never once seen/heard them live either in person or on an album. Listening to 'S.R.' had to be the highlight of the album for me--driving down the road laughing and giddy with anticipation while other drivers probably stared at me in minor puzzlement.

The energy is amazing here, and the set list is a nice cross-section of the albums, plus some covers and improvisations. There definitely is a lot of foul-mouthed-ness, but not unexpected as these guys have never made any overtures at being anything less than raw, unbridled, fun-loving, turn-our-pain-into-rocking-fun-tunes musicians. Can't wait to see them live in person now.
