Fountain Average Customer Review: 4.2 out of 5 stars Engaging songwriting with a rock and roll heart, October 28, 2004 By J. Phelan "music lover" (Brooklyn, NY USA) - See all my reviews (REAL NAME) This review is from: The Honest Hour (Audio CD) Possibly the defining record for AOD, this album meets and exceeds every possible expectation. The cohesive sound of a tightly knit rock and roll band, combined with Genauer's compelling lyrical prowess, makes Honest Hour an easy pick for any music fan. In my opinion, this album will help AOD bypass the "jamband" stigma and reach the audiences who need this album and don't know it yet. I've been a fan of AOD since they've been a band, but this album takes them out of the "a band i'll go see" category and puts them in the "i'll never miss a show" category. Brilliant, touching, fun....5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my BEST purchases of 2005 January 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Radio in Key West, Florida is really bad...R-E-A-L-L-Y bad.

Now I have satellite radio...and life is good.

Anyway, I was jamming out and working on my computer, and this really killer song came on ("roads"...track 4). I was listening to the "Jam On" station, which really isn't my thing, but I can dig it now and again (I like to keep an open mind with all types music).

In this case, what was coming out of my speakers wasn't "Jam Bandish"...it was just beautiful music, plus it totally rocked.

I stopped what I was doing and just sat their blown away and fired up. That usually doesn't happen to me during a "first listen".

I typed them into Amazon to read what the customers had to say, and at that time, was surprised to find only two reviews(both 5 stars)so I thought "what the heck", shelled out some cash, and the rest is history.

I've turned this album on to so many people...and they love it.

It's fun music, and it has to be one of the best Live performances I have ever heard.

If you are open to good music...take a chance and give this album a shot. I am a critical S.O.B. when it comes to music and I proudly give this one 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars They don't make 'em like this anymore December 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The hook-filled first two songs, which got some airplay on our local AAA station, grabbed me like few others have in recent years. The rest of the CD is just as good. Superior songwriting and very tight ensemble performances all the way through. Until you hear the crowd reaction between songs you can easily forget this is a live album. I was immediately reminded of The Band -- Reid Gennauer's plaintive voice has some elements of both Rick Danko and Levon Helm and the harmonies are similar, plus the lyrics evoke Robbie Robertson's heartland-inspired classics. Mortality, fate and honor are handled with skill and humor. There are also echoes of Bruce Hornsby (particularly on Speculator) and some nimble guitar reminscent of Dickey Betts. I have heard other live recordings of this band, which are freely available, and I think they really are this good live without any studio sweetening. An honest hour of intelligent, unpretentious and spirited music. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great album February 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Every song rocks. Crystal clear clarity, probably the best sounding live album you'll hear. The songs: Paul Henry, the Harrower, The Honest Hour, Man With a Plan, are so tight and emotionally charged they will knock your socks off. A truly great album from a truly great band. Special mention to Nate Wilson's solo on Speculator - beyond.

5.0 out of 5 stars That First Review is Incorrect June 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This Cd is sweet. Yes, it would help if you liked Strangefolk when you purchase this Cd, but even if you don't, its still awesome. I have given copies to friends as gifts and they have been thanking me ever since. AOD is on the rise to becoming a major band and its great to see their first live album hold so much energy. Buy this album now or you will forever live in a world of unhappiness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love these guys October 4, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Saw AOD at Mountain Jam several years ago and loved these guys. Kind of forgot about them until I heard "Road" on a Jam radio station. Bought this CD and love these guys all over again. The songs are all lively and easy to listen to. I will buy more CD from AOD. Hope to see them live again.

I had heard some Strangefolk before, so some songs were familiar to me (like Speculator). That being said, you don't need any jamband background to appreciate this CD. Read more
