Live At Stubb's, Vol. 2

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
For Matisyahu, lightening strikes twice in, of all places, Texas. Six years on and the American Hasidic Jewish reggae superstar returns to the Austin bar that helped launch his career for Live at Stubb's, Vol. 2, a concert album that arguably tops its predecessor. Here, his growth as an artist allows him to be more loose and confident on-stage, but a big reason this one might just be better has to be his new backing band, the Dub Trio. They're right there in support mode whenever and wherever the singjay needs them, following all the twists and turns of elaborate songs like "Mist Rising," or providing that simple downbeat punch on the powerful highlight "Open the Gates."...

For Matisyahu, lightening strikes twice in, of all places, Texas. Six years on and the American Hasidic Jewish reggae superstar returns to the Austin bar that helped launch his career for Live at Stubb's, Vol. 2, a concert album that arguably tops its predecessor. Here, his growth as an artist allows him to be more loose and confident on-stage, but a big reason this one might just be better has to be his new backing band, the Dub Trio. They're right there in support mode whenever and wherever the singjay needs them, following all the twists and turns of elaborate songs like "Mist Rising," or providing that simple downbeat punch on the powerful highlight "Open the Gates." They also soar during instrumental interludes, improvising and exploring without ever running away with the material. Tracks from the overproduced album Youth sound outstanding in this stripped-down setting, and Matisyahu's voice is as powerful as ever, but now has added grace for the softer moments. Even if the first disc was his breakthrough, this is the Stubb's fans will choose to return to more often.

    Not as good as Vol. 1, but respectable

    If you're a fan of Vol. 1, take note that Matisyahu's work has evolved greatly since 2004/2005. Vol. 2 contains his later work performed live, and at times it makes you wonder if you're listening to remixes or live performances. The performance of "Time Of Your Song" is very good. "One Day" is a much better when performed live. I'd say this isn't a bad album, but I wish he would go back to the sound that he had with Vol. 1 that was much more instrumental.
