Review by slugsack

slugsack Review of the first set: forced, jams were cut short and not very good song selection in terms of flow. Seems like there's some compromises being made by the band here. Maybe everybody in the band picking songs they want to play and then shuffling the jumbled choices up at random. Maybe this is part of an elaborate song title gimmick puzzle. I don't know what it is but the band sounds like they're on an agenda. This isn't good for their music.
Second set I will listen to again. Twist > Mercury > Light > SPACE was pretty cool. Wingsuit fit in really well after the space dwindled to the briefest moment of silence. However, compared to the rest of the set, Wingsuit is weak, so it kinda wrecked the buzz. Rock and Roll reminded me that the buzz was beautiful, while it lasted.
Encore. Deserves its own review. It was an epic song choice, even if I couldn't stay awake til the very last notes. I had heard this before, many long years ago. It was an Alpine Valley 96, my second show. Hood > ADITL. Very nice. Thank you for a great finish!
I'm really looking forward to tonight - the potential for an epic show is high!
