All Music Guide - Robert L. Doerschuk
You can practically smell the spilled beer and nachos throughout this second live album from the poet laureate of Hill Country hangovers. Aside from the last track, Live was recorded at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, well within the corona of Austin, with Robison at the peak of his laconic powers. Backed by his band, the Enablers, he takes his time with songs that generally flow lazily past, slicked by a mix of Lone Star and steel guitar. Several tracks stand out: Some, such as the foot-stomp, Irish-inspired "John O'Reilly," ring like alarm bells and briefly shatter the sodden reverie. Others provide goofball interludes, especially "Life of the Party," whose ...

Several tracks stand out: Some, such as the foot-stomp, Irish-inspired "John O'Reilly," ring like alarm bells and briefly shatter the sodden reverie. Others provide goofball interludes, especially "Life of the Party," whose grade-school scatology is more endearing than offensive. And there are moments that approach poetry, especially on Robison's rendition of his brother's "Tonight," whose evocation of teenage life in a tiny Texas town is as vivid as any scene you might choose from The Last Picture Show. As for that last song, "Walter," a case could be made that this crisply produced coda, cut with a bunch of studio pros in Nashville, should have been saved for some upcoming project. It's too much of an anomaly here -- a bit too polished. It's good, but hell, it ain't Live.

    I hate to say it, but Charlie wants my money..

    a little more than he used to. This live album, which I anticipated nervously, only confirmed my suspicion that this brother Robison is living the good life and not really interested in creating anything relevant or at least fresh since money aint so tight around the Robison household. Sorry, Charlie, but I miss the old stoned you.

    Awesome live CD!

    I hope Charlie's ready for his first platinum (or multiplatinum) CD! This very well could be it. I mean, I grew up on KISS, Lynyrd Skynyrd & Willie Nelson's live albums, so the only way I know how to say it, is that CR Live is right up there with KISS Alive, Willie Nelson & Family Live or Skynyrd's One More From The Road. And they couldn't have picked a better opener than Poor Man's Son. The Enablers rock on that one. Speaking of the band, they're featured very well on this CD. It's an awesome live CD from beginning to end, & it also features a NEW Charlie tune. It's called "Walter", & it's about a good ol' boy who has a crush on a bad ol' girl. You gotta hear it! ;)
