From its developing days through touring with Taylor Swift and becoming a major headlining attraction, Needtobreathe’s always been a seasoned and dependable concert attraction. The evidence more than speaks for itself throughout these 17 tracks split across two discs, which were recorded during last year’s Nashville show supporting Rivers In The Wasteland. Though there’s plenty from that roots rockin’ collection of impassioned introspection (including the dusty stomper “Oh, Carolina” and the hearty acoustics of “Brother”), the band makes sure to deliver prior favorites like “Keep Your Eyes Open” and “The Outsiders” doused with an extra degree of gritty aggression. In other words, this isn’t Needtobreathe’s most cleanly produced project, but the raw and spontaneous feeling provides an accurate and engaging snapshot of what took place on the tour, while also allowing the group’s redemptive lyrics to come across loud and clear.
