One of the best show I've ever seen ! Compare to the day before, it was so impressive. The band was in great fit, and Efrim better despite his illness. They played very loud and seemed to be happy. Some parts were differents (check the middle section of « Metal Bird » and its beautiful strings) and they increase the length of some paterns (« 13 Blues », « Black Waters »). The 2 new songs are getting better and less clumsy, and the 2 old ones, « microphones in the trees » and « hang on to each other » remain beautiful !

Subject: My opinion
The two new songs continue to amaze, especially "Metal Bird." That song staggers my mind, and this is the best version of it yet in this Archive. It defies everything we've come to expect from them. There's no buildup from silence to a climax, there are no tribal chants -- it just starts out with a bang and doesn't let up. ASMZ has spent years defying all other artists' sounds, and now it's as if they're trying to defy their own sound -- but in a good way. Simply amazing stuff.
The other new song, "There Is a Light," could be described as a more "traditional" sounding song, but that's not a bad thing at all. It continues in the tradition of pretty melodies and unusual (for this band) expressions of hope for the future that were previously explored in "BlindBlindBlind." It's a great set-closer.
The rest of the performances, in my opinion, are not quite as strong as they have been on other nights. For example, "1,000,000 Died to Make This Sound" is played a little too slowly here, as is the first part of "13 Blues For Thirteen Moons." I've heard other performances of these songs that I like much better.
I give this show 4 stars for the sound quality and the new songs.
