When a band puts out a live album, they do so to capture an energy. "Live" by Adrian Xavier Band succeeds in doing just that. Their sound is big and well layered. Adrian's vocals are well-suited for this reggae genre, and nicely complemented on these live tracks by taseful harmonies . "Heart and Soul" opens with a bang and transitions into a rolling groove with crowd friendly breaks and a catchy chorus. "R Love R Creation" is a great "love one another" anthem with some great Saxophone work. All in all, this is the real deal when it comes to reggae. It encompasses everything reggae is all about. If you like Bob and Ziggy Marley or Spearhead, you'll like this CD.
