AllMusic Review by

For this installment of the AUSTIN CITY LIMITS live series, the track listing expands to two discs and collects performances from the roots-music institution's 2005 festival. The first CD focuses more on younger post-punk/alt-rock bands, including Bloc Party ("This Modern Love") and Ambulance LTD ("Primitive [The Way I Treat You]"). Disc two generally leans toward established and rootsier acts such as the Allman Brothers Band ("One Way Out") and ACL mainstay Steve Earle & the Dukes ("Warrior"). With its diverse selection of concert performances, the compilation will appeal to a wide range of tastes, particularly fans of indie-rock and alt-country.
