It was very good! I definitely could not enjoy it as much because I was on no sleep and in significant pain but it was fun. Dance Yrself Clean > All My Friends as a closing pairing is probably the greatest of all-time one-two punch for a finish.

They play Tonite even faster live, which was a nice touch in my view.

They were so good on Friday. The stretch of Tonite-Home-New York I Love You... to close the main set is unbelievably good. Tonite may be my favorite LCD live song this side of All My Friends. It packs so much punch, and the crescendo at the end through the "But it's all lies" is too good.

Tonite is a monster for sure. Lyrically top-notch as well, Murphy really killing it on this record.

I agree. The first part of the last verse is wonderful - meaningful, full of imagery, but also with great cadence. All you'd want in lyrics, really.

Quote:
But out of the little rooms and onto the streets
You've lost your internet and we've lost our memory
We had a paper trail that led to our secrets
But embarrassing pictures have now all been deleted
By versions of selves that we thought were the best ones
'Till versions of versions of others repeating
Come laughing at everything we thought was important
While still making mistakes that you thought you had learned from

Yes, great lyrics on that one. I've come around to it as the best song on the album.

The beat is a bit boilerplate compared to the likes of How Do You Sleep, but the lyrics are among the very best of Murphy's career. It captures the cynical world-weariness that's evident all over the album, a quality that places the album at the top of their discography IMO.

I think that describes their entire discography, basically.

You hate the idea that you're wasting your youth
That you stood in the background until you got older

Goddamn man.

Yeah that part, coming after like seven minutes and with the music throbbing and him almost sounding like he’s having a panic attack, is so wild.

It’s like the protagonist from All My Friends discovered that you can’t live entirely on nostalgia and MDMA.

Terrific line in Emotional Haircut along similar lines:

You got lovingly dear moments from your past that you cannot repeat

And you got numbers in your phone of the dead that you cannot delete

We get it, Murphy, you knew David Bowie.
