  1. Not sure but I'm very pleased as long as they don't. Sometimes the truth is harsh.
  2. As much as like Bliss, I personally don't see much of a point in playing Bliss as he can barely sing it anyway, it just sounds strained and in recent years he also messes up the vocal rhythm/timing. IMO it may have been a better fit if some of Bliss was implemented as part of the medley, and New Born instead was played in it's entirety.
  3. I think it's good they set for a gospel version of Dig Down, as it would be too similar to Madness otherwise (which, at the other hand, they wouldn't need to play at all if I were to decide). I think the song I least want them the keep is Mercy, I don't like the way Matt have messed up the rhythm and timing of the vocals the last couple of years. It's sound so much worse than it did when Drones came out. It's not the only song affected by this, but here it's as it most evident and annoying IMO. I'd also prefer Blockades over Propaganda, and perhaps The Void somehere at the end, maybe as closer? MOTP would fit very well with the overall setting and colour scheme, too. The shows of this tour looks very cool and nice visually though, I must say, and the use of people on stage didn't turn out the way I feared. It's being implemented tastefully overall.
  4. Do you mean it was exciting, or would be? Because there are clips on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/embed/XCOvv50EaeY
  5. Algorithm and Break it to Me debuts sounded good. Thought Contagion seem to get worse and worse, though. Especially the verses which was the least problem in the beginning? Sounds rushed and different vocally.
  6. Yeah, hope it will come a better clip somewhere. It's obviously recorded in England, but exclusively for this Japanese show.
  7. Just stumbled across this, hopefully a better quality clip will reach the surface in the near future: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_7gm8b6lAk
  8. Yea, I saw that too. It's interesting how a song can be a "hit" even before it's been released, isn't it?
  9. Brass section, as previously pointed out, doesn't sound very good but Matts vocal delivery is the best one live so far, I think.
  10. I'm a bit concerned with their live performances overall since The Drones Tour ended. I feel as if they aren't playing their songs with the authority, confidence and professionalism they used to. The delivery seems a bit more sloppy at times and... yeah I don't know. I've looked back at some early performances of Drones songs recently and it was just a higher level overall. Also Matts microphone technique gets worse and worse, I feel. Vocals cuts out back and fourth in a way that just doesn't sound very good, it doesn't have the "volume compensation" effect I assume he's aiming for. I will be interesting to see if it gets better once they start a more proper, longer and on-going tour again. Not a fan of the clothing so far either. Matts basically had the same kind of cloths as he's wore since Drones tour ended, so you don't get that thought-out visual profile thing, so to speak. Maybe they're waiting for the real album tour to begin... but yeah, I'd wish something else than bomber and souvenir jackets of different kinds, anyway.

  12. I personally hear some traces of MK Ultra and Uprising in Blockades. Verses have some vocal melody similarities with MK Ultra, although its perhaps a bit subtle, and the word "raze" in the chorus sounds very similar in tone to Uprisings "degrading".. Wouldn't call it very similar overall though. I wish they could've done something with the choruses though, especially the last one. Changing drum pattern or whatever. It just get slightly too repetitive and boring, you kind of wait for something to happen. I like when a song go somewhere else further down the line -- like Dead Inside or The Handler to mention two more recent examples. Simulation Theory has a few too many cases of un-imaginative song structures, with a third more or less identical chorus at the end. Algoritm has a very cool, tasteful and effectful structure though, that continues to build up and develop from the beginning to the end -- without repeating itself more than necessary. One of the better songs overall though, for sure. It has the tone I overall miss elsewhere on the album (thankfully also present in Algoritm, my absolute favourite, as well as The Dark Side and The Void).
