From JamBase Review of Live Ride:

"Nashville's Moon Taxi redeem the notion of a 'jam band.' Moon Taxi synthesizes divergent elements into a cohesive, concert-ready rush, which makes Live Ride a prime intro to this vibrant group. These performances capture a going-for-the-jugular dedication that looks for the folks in the back of the room not getting off and strives to make them pop. In their mixture of interesting time signatures, feel good melodies and genre-snubbing diversity, they are kin to archetypal jam bands like God Street Wine, String Cheese and the aforementioned Phish, but like those bands, possess their own identity, their own way of handling the raw materials. What one finds on Live Ride is well played, well sung music with clever, satisfying touches galore tucked into the songs. Moon Taxi seems interested in music without borders, and that alone marks them as one to keep an ear bent towards in the future."
