overblown cockney titus andronicus horseshit.

This feels like a much lighter-hearted Ants From Up There. The theatrical elements of their lyrics are expanded upon significantly ('The Boy') and they still have their talent for beautiful climax ('Turbines/Pigs'). Stellar chamber rock album.

I was one of the not-so-lucky fans of BC,NR to really not be a fan of their sophomore record. On dozens of times, I have gone back to see if I will get the hype from other fans, but it just never clicked with me, and I believe I finally know why. ?Ant From Up There? was a revolutionary set of ideas and sounds for the rock genre that came off as extremely dry and underwhelming for what I wanted from the band. However, what is interesting is that on the band?s new live album in which all new songs are performed with the sudden departure of their lead singer, there seems to be a real passion to turn the style of AFUT into an even more exciting and intimate listening experience. Something about the live setting and the constant swelling between jazz and chamber and rock music really adds a deeper level that I never got from the former. With this praise I still find this album to be weaker than the band?s insane post-punk debut. But I understand the band does not want to do the post-Brexit style anymore and is trying for a more theatrical and grand sound. But this live album really feels like the sound is clicking and I hope to see them progress further with this.

This is BC,NR without Wood. His vocal style is lacking here, but to me, it's musically that this Bush record fails to attain the same level of greatness as Ants: climaxes do not hit as hard, crescendos leading to said climaxes aren't as poignant, and Wood's unique delivery is poorly copied here. Good shi, but they've matrixed me way too much last year for me to enjoy this properly.
