This review is from: Live Music (Audio CD)
Grrrrreat cd that captures the latest 2008-2010 tour for the 'Rain' release. Saw them twice on the tour, simply stunning. Performances on the cd are in turn energetic or fragile (as you would expect from JJ...) and all are tight and flawless...
And the choices of covers are superb - Scary Monsters just floored me!
So why only 4 stars? Disappointment in the song selections, primarily because nothing is included from Rain, which was outstanding. Would have much prefered live versions of several Rain cuts over others that have been released in live versions before (Cancer, Slow Song, Steppin Out, Sunday Papers, etc.) All great songs performed exceptionally well here, but the musical reconstruction was not enough to merit putting them on yet another live release. Wish this would have been a 2 disk release and/or an entire show, then it probably would have gotten the full 5 stars.
Having said all that, even if you have Summer in the City and Two Rainy Nights, this is still worth owning. By far!
