Overview

A glance at their resume would suggest that Sunny Day Real Estate aren't that stable an outfit. The band even broke up for a piece in 1995 after frontman Jeremy Enigk discovered religion and drummer William Goldsmith quit to join the Foo Fighters. But now they're back with proof that last year's impressive disc, HOW IT FEELS TO BE SOMETHING ON, was more than a hasty but successful studio project. LIVE reveals the band's chemistry in all its melancholy splendor. While the disc was recorded during a concert in Eugene, Oregon, the group performs with more precision and feeling than many acts muster in months of studio time. Six of the 11 cuts are from HOW IT FEELS, but even these sound more alive then ever. It's almost as if, after years of uncertainty, Sunny Day have finally realized their true purpose: to spread the passion of their emotionally-charged music across the land -- or at least to the far shores of Eugene, Oregon.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Blake Butler
An absolutely perfect way to carve a vivid memory of one of the most passionate and dumbfounding live bands ever. For those who have not experienced the purely incredible Sunny Day Real Estate live, you are now one step closer to the magic. If you were lucky enough to see them, you know that this live document is outstanding. With perhaps one of the best set lists performed throughout the entire How It Feels to Be Something On tour (including "Song About an Angel," "Rodeo Jones," "J'nuh," and the ever popular "In Circles," to name a few), the band rains down on their audience with energy of their passion and intensity. Slight changes in mood and style of the songs, such as on the dark and breathtaking rendition of "Pillars," offer different takes on the much-loved songs. Jeremy's vocals sometimes slip out of place, but the emotion is so beautifully real that it rarely matters. A definite must-have for any fan and/or newcomer.

As an avid lover of many different genres of music, I am not a large fan of 'emo'. I have listened to Sunny Day Real Estate on a few different occassions. They seem to brake the mold of the norm. Many EMO-philiacs probably don't enjoy Sunny Day Real Estate (as they do not all have black framed Elvis Costello eyewear and the standard-issued Converses) I feel their talent is overlooked alot. Their previous CD's are great and they continue to put out awesome music, despite all their personal drama, and this LIVE album only proves there strength as a band. A definite must purchase!
