The first set was a bit lack luster. Everything was well executed but nothing to get too excited about. The highlight would have to be the debut of "Yarmouth Road" which was honestly, just not that great. The moment the song was over, the expressions on the guys faces reaffirms with my sentiment that it needs work or should be shelved. I really do hope it grows on me and the band as well.
The second set was great although the other new tune played tonight titled "Energy" was not my cup of tea either. However, from "Light" to "Zero" is some amazing music. The highlights would have to be "Light" and "Steam", full on confidence soaked experimental jamming. It's moments like these that keep all of us coming back for more.
Tonight Trey convinced me that sometimes the "Whale Call" can be pretty bad-ass.
