It’s Great to be Alive!, the sprawling, three-plus hour document of Drive-By Truckers’s 2014 three-night stand at San Francisco’s Fillmore Auditorium, is a carefully curated record that does a great job pretending to be a raw, unfettered representation of a single night.

In several aspects, it's a return to form.
