This is one of the more difficult PMG albums to like. What has changed most since the previous studio album ('Letter From Home', but can it really be six years earlier) is the rhythm. It isn't just that the personnel have changed -- Pedro Aznar has disappeared, to be replaced yet again by Messrs Blamires and Ledford. No, for this album, the compositions are guided by the new groove, a sort of Metheny hip-hop, minus any rap.
Some, but not all, of it works. None of Metheny's subsequent albums has followed this path.
Well worth the price alone is a wonderfully exuberant track #4, 'To the End of the World', which provides empirical proof that there is a God. Structurally, it's a re-working of 'Are You Going With Me' to the new groove, but there is no harm in that. I could swear that even the intellectual Steve Rodby gets funky for a few seconds!
A fascinating aspect of the sleeve notes is where each artist lists seven or eight albums of the past. It doesn't say whether these are their most influential albums, or their favourite albums, but there are a few surprises. Guess who lists Stravinsky? Beefheart? Wayne Shorter? (Three of them, actually.)
No Metheny compilation would be complete without track #4.

This is by far Pat Metheny's best album. I listned to this album almost non stop for approximately 1 year. There is no other jazz album that has matched this one in its intensity and subtleness. Buy this one today.

This CD has to be the most satisfying of all his releases. Not only does he satisfy the Metheny fan, he makes new fans out of those who enjoy hip grooves. Take your pick on this CD. Title track, To the End of the World, Red Sky, The Girls Next Door; Metheny and his band gives the right touch to this release. One of my favorite CD's!

I own about 10 Pat Metheny albums, and I enjoy all of them alot. That said, this album has always stood out as my personal favorite. It includes some of Methenys best work as a guitarist, and as a composer. I really cannot fathom all the negative reviews this album is getting...

This is a unique Metheny album, unlike most others. It contains rhythms that trace back to Pop and Rock. "To the End of the World" is the real standout track on this album, an epic 12 minute piece with varying themes and rhythms. It stands out among Methenys superior compisitions. "We Live Here" features a tribal element, proving the bands boundaries and limitations are endless and nonexistant.

The band, Lyle Mays - keyboards, Steve Rodby - bass, Paul Wertico - drums, and of course Pat Metheny on guitar, are all on top creative form on this album. Great album to own if you are looking so see what all the hype over Metheny is about, or if you have a hankering for some good Jazz/Fusion.

Before all of us purist Metheny-adicts go Berkshire and accuse PMG of selling out to the evil Kenny G, let's have a little faith that Pat actually knows what he's doing here and that this is an honest effort to expand the already broad horizons of the PMG jazz landscape.

I know. The entire album is set to what initially sound like canned drum machine loops that would seem to render Paul Wertico's presence moot. It is initially tempting to think that Warner Brothers pressured Pat into producing something that would appeal to the main-stream smooth jazz radio audience, but I don't think this is the case.

For all of it's obvious and deliberate pop orientation, there are enough pure jazz notions in all of the compositions to render the CD still head and shoulders above anything any "smoothy" journeyman could ever hope to produce. It's almost as if Pat was saying, "OK. I'll come down on your level just this once and with nine fingers tied behind my back I'll still show you hacks how it's done."

Even in this dumbed-down format, the chord progressions are musically mature, the instrumentation lush, and the soloing far more harmonically advanced than anything the rest of the smooth crowd wishes it could achieve.

In the end, "We Live Here" is a production up to PMG standards that passes the listenability test. I am still more likely to grab "Watercolors" or "Letter From Home" first, but for a change of pace and to ameliorate my wife (who does not share my intense appreciation for jazz but does like this CD) on those long car rides around Dallas/Fort Worth, WLH easily passes muster.

I lent this CD to my neighbor and started thinking about it for the first time in a few years. I looked it up on Amazon.com on a lark - wow, I had never seen the internet when this came out!
I think one perspective missing in the reviews here is that this album came out at a time before a "smooth jazz" radio station had carved out an infamous spot on the dial in every
American metropolis. I.e. back then it didn't sound like a cheesy Peter White album with an upgraded guitar player. Unless you lived close to San Clemente, CA, you probably hadn't heard enough round grooves with jazz guitar to make you puke before this came out.
Personally, I'd like to hear Metheny do a groove project every few years. The good stuff on this album is my favorite Metheny music, and that's saying something.

Is this gonna be worth it?
Oh, yes...it's worth it. Here's my new remaster review from the site, Benjamin.
The improvement on the 2006 remaster varies from track to track. Some were just moderate improvements, yet other tracks were dramatically improved. The gain (loudness) has increased, yes...but I don't detect any... Read More
