Well, I know at the concert I attended the Around The Sun tracks were some of the most enjoyable performances of the show. Specifically "The Outsiders" and "Around the Sun" were almost surreal live. I'm not sure if they are still playing those songs in Europe, but whatever ones they choose, they do a great job of translating into a live setting.

Thanks, I've not heard those songs. I've only heard Leaving New Youk and Aftermath from the album. LNY is good, albeit with a certain repeat feel to the song. Aftermath falls a bit flat to me. It seems like it wants to be hypnotic number, but doesn't quite have the proper instrumentation for it.

Oh my god, that setlist ... did they really play Sitting Still?

I saw them in Seattle last fall. It was great. They're not in such close competition with U2 for "Corianderstem's Favorite Band" anymore, but they put on a GREAT show.

I was surprised at how much I liked the Around the Sun songs live (with the exception of one, I think it was High Speed Train). Around the Sun in particular was great; they opened with it.

And they played Life and How to Live It.

I loved the show I saw here last fall. I hadn't seen them since the late 80s/early 90s. Michael Stipe is a national treasure.
