Caught the Brit-prog-Rock trio in Boston last weekend. Good time. If anyones not to familiar, youre not alone. they have a bit of a cult status here in the States but in England they can sell out stadiums.
Great live show, they have some killer lighting effects and the music at times has some great riff moments to bang your head along to and jump around. Thing is, this feels pakaged ready 'arena rock'. Not in a bad way, but its like this 7,000 seat sports arena seems too small for it. (they just came off a show in MSG - more than twice as large)
I almost feel like there the 21st century Bon Jovi. WIthout the hair. And the bad clothes....yet we all know the words to "Livin' On A Prayer".
Maybe I shouldnt admit that even if it is true....
