"I have a tendency to qualify anything said about some of my favorite bands by adding that they don't necessarily sing that well, they don't necessarily play that well, and their lyrics can be trite ... but they remain among my favorites, because their music just inspires happiness. O.A.R. slips easily into this category. If you're looking to be technically awed or to find something stylistically innovative, you'll be disappointed. If you're just looking for something danceable and smileable and bearing a certain kind of joyfulness, this album can be a wonderful antidote to all of the "deep," dark, difficult options out there, even if it could have been nicely consolidated into one disc to avoid the tendency to start blurring together a bit. (Note: if all of the back and forth "love 'em or hate 'em" reviews are making you unsure, you can preview entire albums through the band's website, including this one.)"
Some Of The Best Live/Jam Music Out There

"Any Time Now was the first album I heard by OAR. I listened to their studio albums and I realized that OAR, like Phish and Dispatch and other jam bands, sound best live on stage. In the studio, OAR sounds rather empty to me. On stage, they are awesome. One of the differences is they have added a very talented saxophonist to the band for Any Time Now who adds a wonderful touch to their songs.I went to an OAR concert and had the time of my life. They have so much energy and talent and the show was not for one second boring. I have seen John Mayer, Trey Anastasio, Guster, The Other Ones (The Greatful Dead), Dave Matthews Band, and Dispatch in concert and they were all as phenomonal as OAR was.If you like any of the bands I have listed, you will love OAR. If you love any of the bands I listed than you should stop whatever you're doing and go by Any Time Now this minute. One thing OAR needs to do now is write new music, go on tour, then release another live album like anytime now.Like the other bands I listed, OAR is wonderful, feel-good music. Many of their songs are the tellings of stories and the adventures they have had. Other topics of their music are partying, girls, drinking, and working. It seems like the last thing we need to listen to right now is Eminem singing about slitting his ex-wife's throat.Hot tracks include: Conquering Fools, Hey Girl, Night Shift, About An Hour Ago, and Black Rock.See OAR in concert...."
