Well I'd give the setlist to that show a C or D. Three tracks from before 1985? Fuck right outta here. Yeah, you're at a festival, but there are some fans there too. They played more from Wild Mood Swings than Seventeen Seconds and Faith combined.

Performance was A+++, they sounded amazing. Robert looks horrible but his voice is vintage. Good mixing (no acoustic guitar in the mix at all though), great crowd response, obviously a top shelf gig in many respects.

I loved every minute of it. RS looks like he's looked for years, and really happy.

Phoenix are sounding good, too, but yeah, no contest.

Well you know, if you directed your comment to me instead of to everyone else about me, maybe I would respond differently. Cause, you know, it doesn't come off as a joke at all. It comes off as you having an elitist attitude and you belittling me for my taste in music. It's just not cool man.

I thought he looked better than he did a few years back. I enjoyed the stream as well, they sound waaaaaaaaay better than they did the last time I saw them. That "we're a three piece now" thing did not work.

Yeah, I think he's lost some weight. Sounded amazing to me. And I love watching them, too.

Agreed. I had a pipedream of hearing A Forest, In Your House, 10:15 Saturday Night, The Figurehead, etc. Obviously it wasn't going to happen, but I would have liked to have heard at least one of them.

Beach House was fucking stellar, as always. Victoria seemed high as hell or something, but she sounded even more powerful and nuanced than she did when last I saw them.

There was a great moment a few minutes before Beach House came on stage. Grizzly Bear were finishing up, and I caught a glimpse of Alex (BH's guitarist) offstage dancing to the song.

I am stunned by the cure not playing a forest. Absolutely stunned.

I was hoping for a blistering version to close the first set.

One Hundred Years > Disintegration was the money shot. There was no topping that, but they could have come pretty close.

Yeah, that was great. The stretch around Just Like Heaven was fantastic as well. I think Lovesong and In Between Days were there.
