Editorial Reviews

The Weakerthans come from Winnipeg, Manitoba, the geographic center of North America. Their deeply lyrical music speaks of the vast open spaces and broken industrial dreams in which it was created. Founded in 1997 by former Propagandhi bassist turned guitarist/frontman John K. Samson, The Weakerthans hold deep roots in the indie scene, with drummer Jason Tait also recording and touring as part of Toronto indie collective Broken Social Scene. Having built a fanatical fanbase touring through the US and Canada, the Weakerthans finally offer a permanent record of one of their fantastic live shows, recorded on the tour for their triumphant 2007 release Reunion Tour. With an expanded line up that includes trumpet, violin and female vocals, the Weakerthans run through songs from all 4 of their albums, in front of an adoring hometown audience, singing along with every lingering word.

Format: Audio CD
**Before I begin, just know that the listing here is wrong. The product comes with two discs, a CD and a DVD. At least, I'm fairly certain it comes with both. I bought my copy at a store the day it was released, and, unless there's some alternate packaging that I'm not aware of, you'll be getting a CD/DVD combo. That said, I suppose the only way to know for sure is to buy it from a store. If you buy it from Amazon and don't get the DVD, you can't really complain as they held to the product description. Anyways, onto the review...

I would like to echo the sentiments of the other reviewer. The songs are very polished, darn near the quality of the albums they came from. But, that begs the question, if you already have their other albums, why pick up this one? You'll find very little variations, very little banter with the crowd, and very little of anything that seems like a real Weakerthans performance on the CD. Now, it's possible that the in-between song banter (that is on the DVD) was cut out due to the brimming CD length (clocks in at a bit over 67 minutes). But, the omission of the other stuff is inexcusable for a live album. Either they are the very best band on the face of the earth, or there was a little studio magic going on here. As I've seen the Weakerthans live, and seen tons of clips of them playing live, I can guarantee it's not the first. NO band is THAT good. They're human, and that's why I bought this, to hear the humanity of John K. Samson's heart-wrenching songs. Instead, I essentially got a "Best of" CD. The other reviewer was right, if you were to buy just one Weakerthans album, this is the one. However, if you're a fan of the band and own their other releases, there's really not enough here to justify plopping down 20 bucks.

This is a great CD. It feels like I am at a Weakerthans' show. It has a great span of songs and has lived in my car since it came out. I love listening to it.

This is a stunning album. Any band that sounds this good live is worth taking note of. Highly recommended.
