Yeah, that's a really interesting set. Alive, Better Man, Corduroy. I wonder how long it's been since they've played a set with none of those three songs in there. Not to mention Even Flow, which they've never not played (exaggeration, I know, but not far from the truth).

Despite of that, there were some on the pit bitching how they played Just Breathe, The End and The Real Me again (makes sense because they wanted to use those Seattle musicians again)... Despite the fact that there were only 7 repeats in 2 nights. U2 fans get lucky if they get 4 or 5 different songs on the 2nd night.

Video for No Way (sounds good, especially the ending):

PJ and Springsteen fans are spoiled when it comes to setlists. i know i got annoyed one time when PJ played a very similar final encore to a show i had already seen a few months earlier... afterwords i started thinking to myself "what the shit? 85% of the set was different and i'm bitching cause of 3 songs that were repeated? i need help"

So far Backspacer's a little bit of a disappointment to me, there's a lot to like, and I wouldn't mind an upbeat PJ, but it just doesn't sound all that new to me, we'll see with further listens. I love the chorus to 'Supersonic', but it just comes off as a bit too surfer-rock to me, similar reason why I don't really get into 'Big Wave' from the Avocado.

My favorites at the moment: 'The Fixer', 'Just Breathe', 'Force of Nature'. 'The End' is great, but given the nature of the album seems like an odd way to close it out, and I agree with those on here that liked the demo 'Speed of Sound' better.

Oh man! I think Supersonic is so much better than Big Wave. The more I listen to it, the more I'm convinced that this album is better than the self titled one. But it is definitely new album hysteria to an extent. The last one had Gone and Inside Job after all.

Oh no don't get me wrong, I like it a lot more than Big Wave, its just not the side of PJ I like the most, and I would have loved that chorus without the surfer sound to the music.

And I finally listened to this. First impression - positive. Not sure if it is better than the last album though. Will need a few more spins.

"too well"

I love when Americans get ripped for not speaking the language properly.
