Recently my appreciation and listening time towards Matisyahu has increased quite a bit. I may not be into a lot of reggae, however Matisyahu hits a key for me and I really enjoy all of his releases so far.
This live album is quite interesting. First of all I was not expecting any improvisationals whatsoever. The album is quite lengthy clocking in at an hour. For most of music being put out in the "top 40" world, that's DOUBLE the time. I enjoy lengthy albums and this one was quite alright. The enjoyment factor was not as high for me, due to the fact that I just wasn't expecting the particular arrangements for each track. I think it's worth listening to, of course! What am I saying?! It's musically put together very well. My favorite song on the album would have to be King Without a Crown. It was the best put together and sounded excellent.
Since this release, Matisyahu has put out another live cd at Stubb's. This is going to be an interesting cd and I look forward to it and other releases he decides to do.
