4 stars If one thing is for sure about Umphrey's McGee it's that they love to play to live. As it stands now between their CDs and DVDs, they've put out more live albums than studio ones. In fact there's plenty of stuff you can only get live. Unless I'm missing something Got Your Milk (Right Here), Out Of Order, Morning Song, Alex's House, and Wizard Burial Ground are only available here. The focus of the material here is their Safety In Numbers and Bottom Half studio albums. As usual, the live material that has been released on studio albums is performed with a little extra umph.

Unfortunately the liner notes are really skimpy, but the main show was recorded for Sound Stage probably in 2008. Not unsurprisingly, like the other two DVDs, this one was filmed in Chicago. There's nothing off of Mantis except for one of the bonus tracks. The bonus tracks were apparently filmed during the Mantis tour, so I'm expecting another live DVD will be coming out in the near future.
