Review by raidcehlalred

raidcehlalred No Man's has infinite potential, and, when realized - and realized again and again - we'll be treated to some truly inspired sets. As it was, how great to see Carini ripped for Tweezer (and such a cool and thoughtful rendition at that). I was really interested to see where the set would lead; the segue into MFMF was as excellent as it was surprising. Back in the day I used to love the tune as a show opener. MM* took that spot here - more on that in a bit. This Friend was unfamiliar - the friend of a friend. A slow and patient intro; it works so well with the ideas which preceded it. At the same time, the song has enough history that you're left with a residual, if not visceral, bite. Such cool effects; it was like hearing the tune submerged underwater. And how best to carry on the set? Roggae the absolute perfect choice. Trey's playing is just so, so 'right.'


Trey certainly plays well - as usual - the tune simply lacks that bit of mysticism. Some might complain; it could have been Caspian. Some might complain. A chill and dark Timber might have been perfect. But who is to say.

Thankfully there's the Slave.

Truly one of the 'new' sets (with newer and new songs) that really evoked some of the old vibe. Will be so cool if this is the climb towards the new plateau.

*Anything from that set is welcome. But it would be great to see a Cat / one of the other 'stiffer' zombie grooves at some point.

Love the absence of the Reprise; as if we need any more reasons to be excited for the next show.
