Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Few modern rockers have managed to capture the ephemeral combination of sloppy and serious that earmarked the Band in its prime. That vibe--sounding four-beers casual during a soberly determined performance--accounts for the success of bluesy Big Head Todd & The Monsters; this Boulder, Colorado, group's jammy mix is simultaneously dirty and clean, offhanded and acute, backwoods and scholarly. It's nothing new, as these so-so concert-tracked numbers attest. But there's something there in the performance, a faint glimmer of bygone Band brilliance, that breathes life into pedestrian BHT standards such as "Tangerine," "It's Alright," and the breakthrough hit "Bittersweet." The crowd dutifully goes wild over every muddled note, however, picking up on that sloppy/serious thing more immediately in the flesh. As a live document, even a case for fame, Live Monsters will leave many scratching their befuddled noggins. Why these guys? And did we remember to turn the porch light on before we left for the show tonight? There are no clear-cut answers. Just a lot of jamming and that weird vintage vibe. --Tom Lanham

Blown away once again!!!
Christian
The music selection comes primarily from three of the band's studio albums but what makes it work is the energy they generate in the performances.
Frank Moore
I love this CD, it is one of the best live albums that I've heard.

Ever buy a CD and think "why did I buy this?" afterwards? Having not been a big fan of BHTM before I bought this album, that's exactly what I thought. However, it only took a few listens and I was hooked. This album is fantastic! Especially if you like the blues or old-time rock & roll. The music selection comes primarily from three of the band's studio albums but what makes it work is the energy they generate in the performances. Simply awesome. Todd Park Mohr's guitar work is excellent and Squires and Nevin's rhythm section is fantastic. The backup singer has a voice like a church organ. If you are a fan of John Lee Hooker, Led Zeppelin, Dire Straits, or Blues Traveler you should give this album a shot.

EDIT: It's been four years since I wrote my original review and I felt a need to to add this thought: this is one of a handful of albums that I have encountered in my life that I would rate with 6 stars if it were an option. It's THAT good. There is not another album on the planet that I could recommend more.

Quintessential Colorado band Big Head Todd and the Monsters (BHTM) has finally given its fans what they have desired for years: a full-length collection of their live hits. Recorded over the last few years at shows in some of the band's favorite towns - including Denver, Chicago, and Austin - "Live Monsters" is an outstanding retrospective of all that the three-piece band has accomplished over the last decade. Without delay, the disc starts of with a finely-tuned version of their best-known hit, 1993's sultry "Bittersweet." Listening to Todd Park Mohr's heavy voice carry the words over finely-crafted chords, accompanied by well-timed drums and subtle bass from Brian Nevin and Rob Squires, is a great study in the contrast of the illusion of being love and its reality. The highlight of the disk has to be Vincent of Jersey/Leaving song, the combination that probably gets the most screams from the group's audiences. With high-pitched harmonica wailing over a locomotive guitar, the listener actuallys feel the ground shaking as the crowd sings along "What will you do/When I am....GONE?!" This album is highly recommended to anyone who wants a reminder of how moving, stirring, and fun simple rock & roll can be. Don't miss guest vocals from Hazel Miller on songs like "It's Alright" and "If You Can't Slow Down." She is a talented vocalist and adds a completely new dimension to the band when they are on the road.

Some of you do not know whether or not you like BHT&TM. I didn't like them that much prior to buying this CD. However, I was checking it out on iTunes last year and really liked what I was hearing. Yadda, yadda, yadda...

Honestly, I listen to this CD every morning while I get ready for work, and I have no no no regrets from buying the album. This is really an epic live rock recording. I saw them live in Sun Valley... this is a band that needs to be seen live. The cd is the next best thing. This CD captures the moment/feeling quite well. Highly recommended.

Go ahead. Gas up the car. Check the oil while you're at it, 'cause when this gem spins down you're going to be someplace else entirely. From poignant (Bittersweet), through bluesy grinds(Broken Hearted Stranger) to speeding-ticket rockers (Resignation Superman, Circle) Todd and the Monsters deliver the kind of intelligence, hooks, and energy that define a road trip. Sure, there're a few clinkers - it's live college rock. If you want slick, stick with Steely Dan. Likely as not you'll be hoarse by the last track, though, and you'll wonder how Mohr keeps his expressive and flexible voice together through a full live set.
And there may be something to the idea that it's a Colorado thing - the Samples are another of that state's bands that can deliver at this level.
Stronger than truck stop coffee!

I was not a fan before I purchased this album, but thought I would take a flier on it anyway since I did like a couple of their songs. Now, this is one of those CD's that that stays in the player almost all the time. There is a great deal of variety in song styles, tempo, and flavor. Definitely something for everyone. Look at it this way: Most people don't ask what's playing on the stereo becuase they either know it or don't like it. This CD, people say "wow, who is that?!" One word of caution, don't let your friends borrow it-they may nver give it back!

This is the finest BHTM effort to date - like other great live bands, it is the live recording that captures the true essence of the band. Hazel Miller and Corey Mauser add immeasurably to the band. Live Monsters also displays the range of the band from blues to jazz influenced rock to driving rock to a touch of country. This CD is a must own for any fan of live American music.
Live Monsters includes material from throughout the bands career as well as their most famous covers. Throughout this recording the band displays a surprising subtlety of interplay among the intsruments and voices, which makes for an adrenaline high for the listener.
