  1. One more spoiler though. How does Reading 2011 sound?
  2. Wait, so Earthquake and Connect The Kettle Lead are not Forameus and Falling With The Crowd? Makes me both sad and excited in that case...
  3. Totally agree with Clunge. Same goes with acoustic Something Human. Not the delivery but the vocals are a bit too processed so it feels a bit disconnected from the acoustics, especially in the beginning.
  4. So what do we reckon is the order for the videos? I haven't watched the videos enough but I guess Algorithm goes into Pressure, then Thought Contagion? The Dark Side comes right after Something Human I guess but where is Dig Down and Break It To Me in all this?
  5. Terry Crews as Bernard in the video amused me quite a bit
  6. To be fair, hasn't Matt always written quite emotional songs but covered them with conceptual faff? Drones for example, seems to me like trying to come to terms with a rather controlling relationship, which is the only reason I connected to songs like Dead Inside and The Handler Map of the Problematique as well, with singing about Gaia but referring to what might become (and then became) an economic crisis and how to handle the aftermath. But maybe I'm just reading way too much into it
  7. This 80's retro Thriller vibe makes the mid-life crisis shine through Has anyone mentioned the music video to Gorillaz's 'Stylo' yet? I guess Chris has become Bruce Willis. Jokes aside, I quite like the song, although I feel some details are a bit off, (too big of a jump in singing style between verses one and too, the synth in the chorus a bit too forefront and so on, which makes it a bit incoherent imo) but in terms of the album as a whole it seems it will fit quite well. And as long as we get an acoustic version, which it seems, I'm all ears!
  8. Also, I accidentally laughed out loud in the theatre when Prelude got on as some epic - well - prelude to Starlight. It felt even more trolly than live since it basically was the studio version in studio version quality
  9. I heard a lot of 'mistakes' in this release compared to Rome. It felt as they left some of it be for the whole rock live feeling they loved talking about during the tour. I'm glad they did tbh, but some songs were not their best performances (read: The Handler). I'm really happy about the pro audio of Vuilstaamen riff though. It was the best part of the whole thing
  10. To be honest, casual fans (or less) don't know all the songs they play anyway.

    Can't believe it wasn't a single.

  13. I got the impression they started booing way before they understood what she was talking about.. At least I thought she was going to say no moshing or crowd surfing, before that screen popped up. But yeah it was really fucked up how they booed tbf Edit: Also, that bloody Showbiz falsetto...
  14. Overall really good set. Assassin was great as usual (can't believe I'm staying that, 3rd time now) but I really loved it this time cause I could mosh with my friends. New Born has really come back as a live favourite for me, and to see the OoS visuals again almost teared me up. I took every chance I could to yell for Showbiz, and it made me happy when some people caught on to it as well. Still have hopes for reading! The biggest surprise for me though was Take A Bow. All day all I ever talked about was how I wish I'd get to see Take A Bow with lasers at some point, and well, there it was with some new cool visuals as well! I am a lucky boy. But seriously, the section of madness, starlight, dead inside and so on really kill the mood a bit. The mid-end set needs a piano section and better flow tbh. Oh and Dig Down was even more boring than I suspected. It didn't even feel like a part of the show.. Next off, Leeds.
  15. I haven't even begun to understand what happened last night. I can't even talk about all those songs... The biggest surprise for me last night though was how incredibly good new born was! Didn't expect that. The end of the gig was just complete mayhem. While flying crowd surfing I got spun around, saw people getting naked before landing a meter from Chris just off the barrier and thought "well surely someone hasn't survived this", especially since people were pulled out of the crowd as early as during dead star. Also, the whole Assassin -> dead star intro was a bit like the battle of the bastards. You were just crushed to death
  16. The first full song I heard was Citizen Erased live when my family had dinner next to Cirkus in Stockholm 2003. (We arrived during the middle of Micro Cuts). The song that made me a fan though was Stockholm Syndrome when I downloaded it off Limewire in 2005. EDIT: Made a back check and apparently the first song for me was Thoughts of a Dying Atheist... But CE is the one I properly remember
  17. I still don't reckon hits will get any sizeable amount of votes. Sure, one spot might go to Bliss or Butterflies but seeing as Exo-Politics probably would be cut (going by the FB-Poll) it wouldn't mean the world. Not when many people will go City of Delusion.
