I think it's about 35 minutes. Give or take.

It lacks some heart, some weight ... I don't know. It lacks a big something for me.
I tend to agree. I love Living Well and sometimes when I hear it I get a flash of old R.E.M. -- like These Days but just not as good. And I've enjoyed seeing the band on TV here and then think they sound great (except, well, for Stipe) and look great and the energy and spirit is there. But the reality is I played the record to death for 2 weeks and then put it away because I think it gave me all it had to give.

Well, that was pretty fucking awesome.

Loved just about everything, but, the big highlights for me:

Pilgrimage
Begin the Begin
Pretty Persuasion
Fall on Me
Walk Unafraid
These Days
FIND THE FUCKING RIVER!!!!!!!!

New songs sounded good LIVE, especially Horse to Water and Hollow Man.

Did I mention that, after all these years, I finally heard Find the River? Guess who I thought of when I heard it.

Sounds like you got a nice handful of nuggets there.

Awesome.

I hope my show has even one of those.

Begin the Begin FTW.

Wow, sweet. Good for you, NSW.

How was Stipe's voice? Earlier posts thought he was having a bit of trouble. Any noticeable improvement?

He does not have the same voice he had 15 years ago, but, I only noticed some strain once, really....he sounded fine to me, but maybe I was caught up in everything and simply did not notice.....U2 are obviously my favorites, and there are tons of artists I like a lot, but REM have always been right behind U2 for me, so every time I see them it's special to me.

Oh, and The National were great. I'm not a Modest Mouse fan, but, I liked a few songs, have no idea what songs those were, though.

Find the River.

It's a subtle message, Zoots, but I think I get the gist of it.

Honestly, U2 is and will always be the number 1 band in my heart.

But it's a strong and intense race for the number 2 spot.

I always thought that the Pearl Jammers were holding down the number 2 spot solidly, but lately I'm not sure...

R.E.M. is making a strong case for it...and then of course we have the Beatles, Springsteen, etc. to contend with! Ahhhhhh I don't know.
