Though the Dave Matthews Band has released a few live albums through the years, Europe 2009 is notable because it is the first to feature tracks from his 2009 platinum smash Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King. As always, the group reworks the material; songs such as "Shake Me Like a Monkey" and "Spaceman" differ from their studio versions. However, Matthews was wise to retain their energy and power. In fact, this might be the punchiest live record in the band's deep discography.
