- It's Great To Be Alive! by Drive-By Truckers
7/10 Jack 10th December 2016
This rather large set is both exhilarating and frustrating. The ‘exhilarating’ part is the instrumental music, which is, as on other DBT albums, of a generally high quality. The signature sound of this group is there: walls of sound, built of the amped up sound of two guitars, an electric bass and the on again off again organ/ keyboard. The frustrating part is the quality of the recording itself, and especially the singing. Recording live across three days of concerts in front of a sea of fans may have pumped up the excitement but it didn’t help the recorded sound.
