Almost Perfect
Jonathan A Keller | Weston, FL United States | 12/14/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The thing about this CD is how wonderful it is that this concert happened, but how horrible the reason. Humankind at its best, as a result of humankind at its worst, is a striking contrast and very uplifting. Listening to this CD is a very moving experience, and you've got to play it loud and sing along at the top of your lungs.The songs are more relevant now than it could have ever been imagined before September 11th. Mick and Keith's "Salt of the Earth", The Who's "We Don't Get Fooled Again", JT's "Fire and Rain", Bowie covering S&G's "America", Five for Fighting's "Superman", and of course, Billy Joel's "Miami 2017" & "NY State of Mind"; all great songs in their time, and are especially moving in this emotional and powerful CD. (Billy Joel and Five for Fighting truly stand out).If you're not sure whether to buy this CD, consider this. I (don't like) Bon Jovi (...)! But listen to their performance, you'll hear a bunch of American boys, pouring their hearts and souls into their music in honor of the FDNY, the City of New York, and their country. I admit that it brought a tear to my eye, but I'm still not running out to buy "Slippery When Wet".I loved the intros by John Cusack and Bill Clinton, Mike Moran's narrative, and Operaman. The only hiccup was including The Backstreet Boys. This concert and CD should have been reserved for bands/acts with more integrity than the boy-band du jour. Nick, AJ, Justin and whatever their names are, do not belong in the pantheon with Clapton, Elton, McCartney, and the other bands listed above. The CD is sort of like the big family portrait which includes your sister's loser boyfriend who she dumped 2 weeks after the picture, leaving you with a perfect picture, except for him, and you can't crop him out. Destiny's Child also do not necessarily belong, but at least they covered a song "Emotions" written by someone more talented than themselves.
But overall, this is just nitpicking. Get this CD. You'll love it!"
Rock and History Merge Before Your Ears

"One of the eeriest moments of this splendid, live recording is Billy Joel's performance of Miami 2017 in which the terrible events of September 2001 seemed to be foretold. The performer's voice breaks on the highs but it only seems to add to the pathos of his delivery. Like any live album of this sort, there are highs and lows. The highs, which include Mick Jagger and Keith Richard's powerhouse delivery of SALT OF THE EARTH, and Roger Daltrey's vocal on BABA O' REILLY, are some of the most passionate performances you've ever heard. And Daltrey's voice hardly sounds different from the one we heard thirty years ago. The great sanity and gentleness of James Taylor's performance will, in the historic context of this event, draw tears from more than one listener. Even Destiny's Child delivers beautifully in a Gospel Medley that will send shivers up your spine. Amidst all this grandeur are more lackluster moments,including David Bowie's opening cover of Paul Simon's AMERICA, Adam Sandler's very odd performance of OPERAMAN and Backstreet Boys' surprisingly sleepy rendition of QUIT PLAYING GAMES WITH MY HEART. There are also some blisteringly fine performances that are plopped into the middle of the performance -- such as HOOCHIE COOCHIE MAN performed by Eric Clapton and the beloved Buddy Guy, that are so damned good, we want to hear another cut or two from the duo, but must settle for one. Live performances are always a dog to record, but the four producers of this landmark recording did all they could to create a wide soundstage, balanced accoustics and minimal rolloff distortion during the loudest cuts. Most of all, the audience is a living, breathing part of the recording; they react to the music, join with it, cheer it, even boo it once or twice. All of net Sony's net proceeds on the album will benefit the Robin Hood fund, so it's an especially satisfying purchase too. Over all, I loved this album, warts and all. It is one our children will share with their children. It proves that music can be unbelievably healing. And who knows, you may even get up and dance to it once or twice. I did, and it felt great."
A Rock Tribute to Heroes Fallen and Surviving
Jonathan A Keller | 12/19/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With over 6,000 NY Fire Department members, NY Police Department members and NY Port Authority officers present, some of rock n'rolls' all time greats assembled for a powerful tribute to the heroes of September 11th and the City of New York. David Bowie opened with a powerful set of America and Heroes. Bon Jovi followed with a superb set. On down the line it went with Eric Clapton and Buddy Guy jammin' to Hoochie Coochie Man. Melissa Etheridge overcame some microphone problems to do a great version of the Boss's Born to Run. The WHO were magnificent, especially on Won't Get Fooled Again which brought the audience down, the NYC firemen and police really responding to their music. Keith Richards and Mick Jagger, while their voices are not what they once were, did a powerful duo of numbers keynoted by Salt of the Earth. The final four numbers, led by Paul McCartney are some of the most appropriately chosen songs of the night, especially his newest, Freedom which (like Let It Be) features a stunning Eric Clapton guitar solo. This double CD set is one of the finest concerts I have ever heard. It is a more than fitting tribute to the City of New York and her fallen heroes and heroines. Long live the City of New York and the rockers who honor her."
