Live In New York City - Dave Matthews Band User Reviews
It's the same songs but with a Trumpet!
I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!
If you were there You know the truth
The Show starts off GREAT then you get the same old songs you heard all year over and over.
Some great tunes but nothing outstanding. Good album to have the Big Whiskey songs live but other than that, there are many other live options.1995 Red Rocks or live Trax oh well
Something new every time

DMB changes it up with every performance. That is how they can produce something fresh with every CD and performance. They are fun to watch perform because they love what they do. Thank you gentlemen for your talent, love of life and music, for sharing it with us, and above all, for your continued generosity. Here's to many more years as DMB!!! Thank you to your families for sharing y'all! Hoping to see you at The Gorge this summer (fingers crossed)!
Awesome! Buy it.

Yep, I really thought these guys had lost the edge and were heading for a long and illustrious career in the smooth jazz format, how wrong I was and this album changes everything. It's balls to the wall phenomenal and any DMB fan who gives this half a listen is going to get their face ripped off! I promise you've not heard the lads play this way with such energy and passion in 15 years, everyone is in epic form, Daves vocals are awesome, Carter just crushes it, everyone just rocks hard. This is a must have for any DMB fan or anyone who wants to check these guys out for the first time and really hear how it's done. They’re not done yet, not by a long shot.
Great Live Album!
DMB's been around for about 20 years. Their music has evolved throughout those years. Each and every show sounds different and with the addition to Tim Reynolds their recent tours have a more electric feel to them. I've seen them live 32 times and each time was different. But I do have to say that any NYC show (most recent MSG) that I've been to has been great. They put on a great show and you can tell they're having fun and that they appreciate their fans.

iv been listening to dave for years now. hes always been my favorite musician and iv always thought that him and the band produce the best music out there but these just feels like something way bigger and way more important than anything iv ever heard. im not sure what it is but this is truly unbelievable
This is one of the better live releases, ranks up there with Piedmont Park and the 2008 LiveTrax release from Alpine Valley. Best part of this release when bought from the Warehouse was the bonus cd that came with it.
Good jams, good tracklist, great band! Wish they had Live in Chicago 2010
For Dave fans, it's fantastic.
You know, I see these other reviews saying "oh, these are the same songs off every other live record". Well, that's true. But the beauty of the DMB is that even if they recorded the same song 10,000 times in a live setting, true fans could pick out the nuances of each performance. This cd reintroduces a lot of older material versus the Whiskey-heavy live cd's that came out of Europe in 2009. Sound and performance wise, I couldn't be more satisfied. Is it the same songs? Yes, but for a band that built their career on touring, it's all anyone could ask for.
How many live albums of the same songs can this band put out? The songs sound good but its the same music for the past 20 years or so. Just saying...
