Editorial Reviews

From the vaults of the award winning PBS Austin City Limits TV show, this is the latest release in the acclaimed Live From Austin, TX series. Through all the years of Austin City Limits, there probably has never been a night quite like this. From the opening processional through the crowd, through the harp solos, cymbal crashes and rousing choruses, the many members of Polyphonic Spree, all wearing their floor-long choir robes of every color of the rainbow, lifted the show to new heights on that sultry night in August, 2004. It all began four years earlier inside the head of Dallas punk rocker Tim DeLaughter, but not even he knew where his imagination would take him.

By Paul Allaer TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 12, 2007
Format: Audio CD
In June of this year, the 20+ member Polyphonic Spree released a great third album, "The Fragile Army", and 3-4 months later, out of the blue comes this release, a live album that was recorded at the band's Live From Austin appearance in 2004.

"Live from Austin" (9 tracks, 51 min.) brings the Polyphonic Spree appearance at the venerable TV show on August 3, 2004, when the band was touring behing their then just released second album "Together We're Heavy". That means that this set is naturally heavily focused on that album, 6 of this album's tracks are from "Together We're Heavy", with the remaining 2 tracks from the first album "The Beginning Stages Of..." (there is a short instrumental to start off the album, as the band takes the stage). The band is in great form. My favorite tracks are "Hanging Around the Day Part 1 & 2", "It's the Sun" and the closer "When a Fool Becomes a King".

That was then. As mentioned, the Polyphonic Spree released a great new album earlier this year, and the sound on the new album is heavier than what you will hear here (this live album is also available as a DVD). I had the chance to see the Spree in concert last month on their "Fragile Army" tour, and they were excellent. The visual element of the band is essential and to experience it cannot be enjoyed from a live CD (incidentally, they've done away with the robes the band wore when this album/DVD was recorded). In all, this is a great snap shot of where the Spree were in 2004, and highly enjoyable.
