I actually thought it sounded pretty good for the first two songs, and that maybe I had misjudged this whole thing. And then came the opening strains of Second Hand News and my skin started to crawl. Why would they play that song?? Dumb decision. I could not take hearing Neil sing that song to Stevie. I turned it off when they turned to sing it to each other. Yuck.
Would have been smart to play Oh Well instead of Second Hand News.
Gold Dust Woman was the highlight for me. Stevie sounded close to her old self in that song and it gave each of the members a chance to shine. Better to go with older songs with less Lindsey influence. The band has so many great songs that lack the "Lindsey gloss" and I would love to see the band embrace them. "Hypnotized", "Oh Well", "Dust", etc.
And perhaps it's me but it looked to me like Christine wasn't playing the keys. I barely see her hands moving and their a keyboardist behind her who is clearly playing.
