Yeah, I see that for Australia, they're here to do a festival and we're just lucky they've added a couple of side shows. I don't find the idea of a festival event remotely appealling. Far too many people for far too little reward.

Would you guys frown upon me having a random live track in the middle of my list?

Even if it's by Huey Lewis & the News.

Actually, Vazza, I'm already up to the closer. I'm amazed how seamlessly this album has flowed by. What great composition.

I went to a local radio station's festival when I was 14. I think I saw Coldplay, no joke. They played Yellow. They were pretty damn new, it was 7 years ago.

But yeah, in a country where I don't speak the language, alone, with one band I know I"m interested in, and having to travel there, deviating from my plans? no thanks

the one possibility is Warsaw but I really can't tie myself down enough to get tickets. Oh well. Maybe I'll catch them some time in the next year in Europe.

I've seen them live, too. Pretty awesome stuff.

Yeah, Trouble in Paradise off of the We Are the World album. Ballin' sax solos to the max.

get the 2nd one, and next time, listen to vol 1 and 2 in a row.

I like vol 1 better, slightly, and maybe it's because i've had it longer so i'm more familiar, but they're great together.

the great thing about festivals though is even if you want to see one band and leave (which is ridiculous because you'll be there for 2-3 hours for one hour of music, so you might as well hang around), you paid probably half the price you'd normally pay to see the band. unless it's a smaller band, of course.

Not particularly.

At least you're honest, which I do respect, even if your final assessment was a bit harsh.
