Live: Friday the 13th

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
While it might seem a bit early in the game for Maroon 5 to release a live album -- after all, they only have one full-length studio disc, the multi-platinum Songs About Jane, under their collective belt -- the band pepper this collection with enough surprises sonic and otherwise to make the idea seem altogether reasonable. The DVD/CD package, ostensibly recorded in 2005 on the legendarily unlucky date indicated in the title, finds the quintet hitting on all cylinders, not only on their hit ballads but also on a passel of harder-charging tracks, such as the funky "Tangled." Soaring versions of songs like "She Will Be Loved" and "This Love" prove that frontman Adam ...

While it might seem a bit early in the game for Maroon 5 to release a live album -- after all, they only have one full-length studio disc, the multi-platinum Songs About Jane, under their collective belt -- the band pepper this collection with enough surprises sonic and otherwise to make the idea seem altogether reasonable. The DVD/CD package, ostensibly recorded in 2005 on the legendarily unlucky date indicated in the title, finds the quintet hitting on all cylinders, not only on their hit ballads but also on a passel of harder-charging tracks, such as the funky "Tangled." Soaring versions of songs like "She Will Be Loved" and "This Love" prove that frontman Adam Levine is no mere studio creation: He has plenty of vocal range, to be sure, but more important, he invests the songs with a palpable emotion, from the urgent pleading of "Harder to Breathe" to the melancholic sweetness of the previously unreleased "Wasted Years." The set's other left-field selection is a cover of Oasis's "Hello," which takes on a breezier, more groove-oriented tone, thanks to a cleverly reworked bottom end. The audio component is echoed on the set's DVD, which appends a number of extras, including a "making of" documentary, a nicely assembled photo gallery, and scads of behind-the-scenes footage. Title aside, it's safe to consider Live: Friday the 13th an audio-visual good luck charm.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Live: Friday the 13th is the second live recording Maroon 5 has released since their 2002 debut, Songs About Jane, following 1.22.03.Acoustic by two years. Where that was an acoustic mini-LP, Friday the 13th is a full-blown concert, capturing a live show at the Santa Barbara Bowl, both on CD and on DVD in this two-disc set. In concert, the band sounds a bit bigger and tougher than it does in the studio, and they do deviate from the record a bit, allowing for audience interaction on their big hit "This Love," along with some improvisation scattered along the way. That doesn't necessarily mean that they rock, as their limp rendition of Oasis' "Hello" proves, but rocking isn't necessarily the point of Maroon 5 -- they're a pop band with a hint of soul, and since they're adept musicians, they do well in a live setting, letting their music breathe and sound a little looser. Consequently, Friday the 13th, in either its CD or DVD incarnations, is a good time for fans -- maybe not as intimate as 1.22.03, and certainly not something everybody needs to own, yet a good souvenir for the fans who are still patiently waiting for a new set of songs.
