If you like live concert Cd's... Jan 8, 2007
I like Jennifer Knapp's music and I enjoy listening to the (sometimes raw) energy of recorded concerts. Having said that, I really like the CD. I was familiar with most of the songs on the disc, and enjoyed hearing the way they have been presented live. If you prefer more polished recordings, and are new to Jennifer Knapp, try her "Diamond in the Rough" collection. But, if you're a fan of Knapp or live concerts, this is a good one.
This WON'T Disappoint!!! Mar 2, 2006
If you are a true Jennifer Knapp fan...you will not be disappointed with this Live Set. There are few female artists in the mainstream secular genre that can rival Knapp in her artist talent, composing & lyricism. She's an outstanding musician and this album is no exception! Her preformance in "Undo Me" and "A Little More" is superb. Definately a CD that true Jennifer fans will want in their library. Her guitar solos in this album are unreal! Eat your heart out Sheryl Crow...you can't hold a candle to this one!
I'm Going to Miss Jennifer Feb 24, 2006
When I first heard about this CD I thought that Jennifer might be on her way back. After reading the material in the booklet that comes with the CD it became clear Jennifer might not be coming back. So while this CD is great I can't help feeling sad everytime I listen to it. Jennifer is one of the best female singers of all time and the thought that she would quit only after three albums just sucks.
Romans, the first song on the CD, is fantastic. I can't but help and smile when I hear it. Two other stand out songs are Martyrs and Thieves & Fall Down.
I would recommend this and any of Jennifer's past CDs the anyone. She is just that good. I pray that her relationship with Chirst is okay and that she is alright. I hope the rest of fans would do the same instead of gossiping on her whereabouts and spreading rumors. Whatever the case may be Jennifer Knapp is one of the most memorable singers of all time... buy this CD, not to support Gotee Records but to have a CD to compare the rest of the singing world to... she sets the standard high.

Jennifer Knapp Live isn't the perfect live CD. It could've been longer, Jennifer could've experimented more during the songs, and it would've been nice if she would've played more obscure songs, or at least either an unreleased track or a cover. But with her sticking to her guns (minus The Way I Am), the recording does sound phenominal.
Throughout the duration of the CD if there wasn't crowd noise you'd never guess that this was a live disc. Jennifer only sounds winded once, during the last song, Undo Me, and even that doesn't sound bad at all. The talking she does with the crowd isn't excessive, and it's not bare minimum, it's just right. The band sounds really good as well, particularly when Jennifer's introducing them and letting them show off a little. Crowd participation in the songs isn't much, Jennifer has them sing a little in His Grace Is Sufficient, but other than that don't expect any.
The song choice could've been better, she pretty much just played her A Diamond In The Rough: The Jennifer Knapp Collection CD. Starting with Romans wasn't a good idea, I would've loved to have heard the version of The Way I Am they play on here first. Other than that I don't have a big problem with the song order. When Nothing Satisfies probably could've been played a little better, and even The Way I Am could've. But the latter is the most impressive song featured. It's acoustic through about 2/3 of the song then it jumps back to the CD version. I think the jump to the CD version could've been more prominent than it was, but it's live, it can't be perfect.
My favorite songs are Whole Again, When Nothing Satisfies, The Way I Am, Martyrs & Thieves, and Undo Me. Like everyone seems to be pointing out, hopefully this is just a little something to tide us over until Jennifer decides to release a CD full of new material, so with that in mind, this is well worth the money.
Something to tide you over... Jan 28, 2006
Jennifer Knapp seems to have disappeared from the music scene, but while her fans wait expectantly for her possible return, Gotee Records has put together this solid live CD from her first, and so far only, headlining tour in 2001.
It successfully captures the energy between Knapp and her bandmates, and while there are no new songs on the CD, the interplay between the band keeps each song fresh. Jennifer's vocal abilities translate well in a live setting, which is a feat that many recording artists can't lay claim to, and the band that was put together for this tour is a relaxed and talented group of folks.
Some artists don't have the ability to pull off a live album, but this is one of the better live albums that I've had the privilege of listening to. The album notes claim that no overdubs were recorded for this release, which usually means that there were no glaring mistakes. It makes for a raw but still excellent performance, with Jennifer and the band leaving nothing on the table.
This CD may be the closest to a new release that we ever get from Ms. Knapp, but it is well worth the price. For ten bucks, you still get an hour's worth of music, so this is no EP. I highly recommend it, although I continue to hope that her career is not over yet, and that she will grace her fans with some new material in the not-too-distant future.
