iTunes Review

At a July 2012 show at Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheater, O.A.R. treated its fans to what’s documented here as the band’s best concert recorded and released to date. The Rockville, Md.–based quintet opens with “Dangerous Connection” from 2011’s King. This version bursts at the seams with a swell of energy, as steel drums and a festive horn section flesh out the tune to fill up the Rocky Mountain air. “Gotta Be Wrong Sometimes” from the same album also gets the live treatment, with closer vocal harmonies and an infectious refrain that begs for the puffy-vested audience to chime in. It’s easy to tell that the other tunes here—like the more indie-edged “Shattered (Turn the Car Around)” and the peppy, reggae-tinged “Black Rock”—are band favorites; Marc Roberge sings the hell out of both of these as Richard On’s lead guitar parts get played with a noticeably enthusiastic attack. Fan favorites like “That Was a Crazy Game of Poker” get jammed out well past the 13-minute mark, with enough space to hear the crowd go crazy.

Customer Reviews

Oar is simply the best

These guys put on an amazing show

They are best live

As a long time fan and veteran of probably 15 live shows all over the country they are much better live, especially from 3 years or so ago and before. They've gone too commercial lately and lost a bit of what we loved about them, so load up on the live albums and rock on.

AMAZING!

OAR shines most when performing live. I have their record "Any Time Now" from the early 2000's and this performance most definitely goes on top of OAR's live albums. Any OAR live album is amazing, but this is the best performance by those guys that I've ever seen (or heard). Buy this album… it will go down as the best performance by OAR…ever. The jam band with a rock and reggae style will keep you moving until the very end of "Hey Girl" the last track and OAR's best song.

O.A.R. (an acronym for the band's full moniker, Of a Revolution) transformed itself from an independent college band to a Billboard chart-topper over the course of a long, varied career. First, two of the band's demo recordings were hawked on university campuses. Then, news spread about the band's roots rock and reggae-inflected songs, which owed much to the jam band genre. Before long, O.A.R.'s website had turned into a highly trafficked Internet destination, and the group gradually left the college...
