REVIEW BY: Various Listees
Was there anyone else here at the Beachland Ballroom show last night? I don't usually write show reviews, but I had to try my luck at this one. I simply couldn't pass it up. What a show! I know I am little late coming in on all this being that I did not make it to Taft this year, but WOW! I love the four piece. The cello makes a huge impact. When he first came out during set up, I wondered out loud to my husband who the guy was with the mop cut and leather jacket. And then when I found out I thought that was awesome! It was great to finally hear some of the new songs that I have seen floating around on the list. And "Who Will Guard the Door?"!!! Fabulous! I had just commented recently after running through Serpents and Gloves that I had never heard that song finished. I can't wait to tell the friend with whom I was watching it. TWCW was the best version I have heard live to this date! I had been hoping they would get away from the keyboard-only style and bring it back to full sound. Wonderful! The finale was a fun little thing. It is so cool to hear two artists together who are so amazing and so different at what they do separatly. I loved it! My only regret was that Bill didn't play a longer set. I was there to see him as much as I was there for OtR. But I think there were a lot of people in the crowd who didn't know him and weren't understanding what he was trying to do. It was a bit of a conservative crowd all around.
