When I actually heard it live at the Rose Bowl, I thought it sounded great and barely noticed the reduction in key. What I did notice was the true-to-album added verse and the "ohhh, maybe the time is right" part sounded great as the piercing guitar and driving rhythm section picked up again.

But like you, I'm good with it remaining on JT 30.

Also like you, I would like to see another couple songs from War take center stage this time. Seconds, Two hearts, refugee could all be centerpieces of an E&I set.
All three of those songs would be great to hear performed. I don't think they have ever played The Refugee live. Underrated song. Hell, this album has a few underrated tracks. Red Light, Seconds...

As time goes by, song I skipped in my youth I come back to...

Red Light is something that is on almost every playlist I put together...

Promenade is another

Trip Through Your Wires....and so on. However the War songs (Refugee, RL, Like A Song...) all resonate with me more and more. I still play this CD all the way through!

One of these days when my wife is out, I'm gonna crank up War and give it an intense listen. I don't think I've heard the whole thing, at once, for about 15 years or something.


I love it! I don't think there's a bad song on it, and only one ('Red Light') sounds a bit awkward. The rest are all great, to my ears.


It's the last "baby band" album. They still sound raw and unvarnished, probably because they didn't have much money on the first three albums so they had to record them quickly (if only they'd go back to doing that now). But of the first three, this one has a musical maturity far beyond the first two.


I think I could make a good argument that War is the most important album in their history.
