i wasn't necessarily saying they were better latterly, but they did morph into some kind of rock behemoth that they weren't to begin with
I agree almost 100% with the first two paragraphs ^^, but feel the opposite about the last statement. I wish I'd been around to have seen them in 2009. Videos from that tour make those performances seem so much more spontaneous than what I experienced in 2010.
you're right about the spontaneity though. it felt like the Jack/Alison show became too theatrical and kind of staid towards the end, but that's maybe our fault for seeing so many shows either in person or online. it felt fresher to begin with. And WTBEW got kinda ruined in 2010 by the rhythm changes, in my opinion.
but that said, I Can't Hear You live in 2010? ye gods.
