Overview

The passionate college rock of O.A.R. gets its first live showcase on Any Time Now, the two-CD album recorded in Washington, D.C., during the promotion of 2001's Risen. The band sounds great on the 17 tracks found here, playing their high-energy rock with a power that only young bands can really manage to muster. The only problem with the album is that it is truly for dedicated fans, as the lengthy songs tend to blur together and the live approach simply does not complement some of these tracks. Without their strong energy level, this album would be pretty dull, but they manage to squeeze as much out of the songs as they can. O.A.R. continues to develop, but at this point in their career there isn't much of a need for a live album. They have the power, but they still don't quite have the variety of songs to make a big project like this work. Still, fans should eat this right up as everything is done to the hilt, from the extended versions of the tracks to the visceral performance style of the band. But those unfamiliar with the music should be warned that this is definitely not the album to start a collection with.

In the O.A.R. bonus dvd (comes with the latest releaseL In Between Now and Then), Richard On, guitarist for the band, states that to know them is to know them live. He further explains that they can do many things live that they just can't do in the studio. If you want to hear this band at their best at their livliest... you must own this cd. I listen to it often, have trouble choosing between disc 1 and 2 and would recommend it to anyone in need of a good time. Always listen to this when you want to dance and smile.

To anyone who has seen the band Of A Revolution, this is a must have disk. This 2 disk set distills the essense of what their live concert experience is into a medium that listeners can enjoy at home. Unlike the previously released studio albums, the band sounds more at ease with their music on these cds. There is an ebb and flow to this live disk that is missing on this young bands earlier work that hints at things to come. It is soul music not only for your heart, but your feet as well. The extended solo's at times can be a little tiresome as a lot of the same ground seems to be covered, but the vibe and the audio quality make it the best of their efforts thus far.

I've been listening and seeing OAR at concerts for over four years now. Most the members are from my area and went to one of the highschools around here. So of course we all loved O.A.R because they were like our secret treasure that basically only the East Coast had heard of. Now however, they have taken it mainstream, leaving us original fans behind but still cheering them on because they are fulfilling their dreams. They are a great band to see live, it's energetic and everyone loves them. I've also met them twice, and they are down to earth normal, cool, really nice guys. Definitely get any of their cd's or better yet see them live so you can see first hand what they are all about.

O.A.R.'s latest release Any Time Now is a great tribute to the bands instrumental talent. With extended versions of already released songs that have awesome solos this cd is a must for any O.A.R. fan. If you have never listened to them before I would suggest starting with one of their studio recorded albums such as Soul's Aflame or The Wanderer.

any time now is a live cd performed by O.A.R the best band in the world. O.A.R is a self proclaimed island roots vibe band. There are a sweet jam band that has a powerfull sound. Everytime you listen to this cd you'll want to get up and jam. Its a high energy cd with a great finish with i feel home, a song that slows it down to end the cd after the intense crazy game of poker. this is a great cd.

To be honest, at first I did not like this band at all. My sister who is a college student on the East Coast played thier album "Risen" for me and I thought: "Oh swell, just what the world needs, another cookie cutter band to provide the soundtrack to "Dawson's Creek". Later that same summer, a good friend drug me grudgingly to one of their concerts and I instantly became a convert. Since that time, I have picked up all of thier titles and I can honestly say that this record best exemplifys why I am now a fan. This band's live music has a passion that only young men on a mission can convey properly. Their songs speak of peace and hope for what I believe is today's college generation. The music reminds me of Ben Harper meets John Mellencamp with a whole lot of reggae thrown in. The singer has a voice that betrays his age; it's smoky, full, and has a message usually reserved for the pulpit. The sax solo's on tracks "City on Down", "Get Away" and "Hey Girl" generally have my head bopping so much that I probably shouldn't play it in my car (for fear that I would be a menace on the highway). I am 33 years old and have a 9 year daughter, and now we have some common ground because she likes them too. So yeah, this record means a lot to me.
