Live from Madison Square Garden
Issued in 2007, Live from Madison Square Garden presents the massively popular Maryland frat/jam band O.A.R. (Of a Revolution) performing at the renowned New York City venue in front of thousands of adoring fans. While the reggae-leaning pop
ock group offers up some older material (the buoyant long-time favorite "That Was a Crazy Game of Joker"), the set mainly finds them drawing from later major-label outings In Between Now & Then (2003) and Stories of a Stranger (2006) on tracks such as the sunny "Hey Girl" and the groove-laden "52-50." A testament to both the ensemble's tight instrumental interplay and frontman Marc Roberge's inviting guy-next-door persona, this concert album serves as an excellent song sampler for the uninitiated, and is essential for any O.A.R. diehard.
