Editorial Reviews

2007 two CD release, their first official live album!. The ascension continues for Chicago's Umphrey's McGee, not only in terms of their commercial success but in creative accomplishment and instrumental achievement as well. Their performance on Live at the Murat is as impressive as anything they've recorded to date, with the power and finesse, the yin and the yang, that have come to characterize their by-now classic material. Recorded in Indianapolis in April 2007 and produced by longtime sound caresser/honorary seventh member Kevin Browning, Live at the Murat is innovative without being indulgent and exhilarating without losing control. Clearly, logging 120 gigs a year, live is where UM lives. Sci-Fidelity.

5.0 out of 5 stars 100% October 20, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Hard to believe I'm the first to say that this is one of the finest live albums I've ever heard. 'Live at Leeds' comes to mind. The common ground between Umphrey's and the Who may be that both are (were) at their peak and are following a classic studio recording (in UM's case 'Safety in Numbers') with a BRILLIANT concert. Umphrey's McGee has honed their reputations on live improv, group improv, and they improvise on the level of the great jazz cats. Rare for rock. I've seen 'em 6 - 8 mind-numbing times, but this one may have surpassed all that I've seen. Obviously ('specially since most every show is downloadable) they couldn't NOT release this one. 5 *****

Quick artsy summary of Umphreys if you're new to them. Umphreys Mcgee are to music like David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest is to books. They're maximalist and progressive in how their large oeuvre layers time signatures, musical styles, key changes, references (and covers) of other songs, bands, or popular culture. On first listen some folks may dismiss their assault of "fast as possible" solos and song exploration as pointless 80s hair-rock-noodling, yet many would argue their approach to music is very contemporary, modern, and intelligent all while catchy and fun. That being said, there's going to be two schools of thought on this one.

For folks yet to hear what this improvisational behemoth actually does in it's marathon song explorations, it's an overwhelming intro, just as Infinite Jest would explode the brain of a casual reader. Umphreys is a live band for this reason, as their music is best measured by multiple concerts, and one live album barely scratches the surface of their catalog of hundreds of original songs. I'd actually send neophites to the stellar DVDs (Live at Lake Coast shows a growing band on the warpath, Wrapped Around Chicago shows a more polished and theatrical performance). Hearing these live concerts is still 5% of their live stimuli overload, and this is quite an atypical show to start with. Visually, you can see the band using their self-developed set of hand gestures to signal musical changes in the middle of a song, or how they use the light show and soundboard as band members.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get it Live!!! November 29, 2012
Format:Audio CD
If you're going to get one album, get this live one!

Crowd pleasers In the Kitchen, Higgins, Nothing to Fancy, Hajimemashite, and 40's Theme are all stellar. Also the few improv numbers are pleasantly flowing on this album. Improv is expected at any live concert, however my favorite moments are the extremely technical guitar pieces like Nothing too Fancy and Angular Momentum.

The reason I pick this album is because UM live is where the magic happens, and this recording is perfect at capturing the energy of the audience feeding the band to elevate their performance to incredible peaks. The sound quality is crisp, all instruments perfectly balanced, and most importantly all the bands members are singing and playing quite well.

They are an exceptional band live, but by no means am I saying that their studio albums are no good. Local Band Does Ok and Anchor Drops are solid studio efforts. I highly recommend these three albums but get the live one first.

Great live disc from a great band. Don't miss this one. The musicianship is outstanding. These guys can play! Umphrey's is finally beginning to get the recognition they deserve - check out the review of their new disc "Mantis" in Entertainment Weekly. Consumate musical alchemists.

I am always looking for new music. I know that Umphrey's McGee has been around for awhile but I heard these guys on XM and The Triple Wide on disc 2 is simply a head nodder, foot tapper type of song. Buy it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great But Not Their Best March 29, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great live album for a very talented band. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I don't think it's the best representative sample of their live act. It doesn't have any of their uniquely-interpreted covers and misses out on some of their funkier songs. You can download a fan-taped recording of any show in the past 5 years at archive.org, or purchase a board mix at umlive.net (well worth the upgrade in sound quality for well-loved shows). This stiff competition from other avenues makes it harder to justify paying for this particular show over others. For example, I downloaded their 1/20/13 fifteenth anniversary show and then ended up buying the board mix because I loved it so much and wanted a better quality recording; that was definitely a better show than this album.

That said, this is still a great live intro to UM. The recording quality is top notch, the songs are fun and diverse, and the musicianship is incredible as always with these guys.
