I'm writing this after having returned from Sydney after the first Metro show there, so my memory of this gig is a little fuzzy. Let's review the set list and see what comes to mind...
The highlights were, in no particular order...
The double ebow action on Endless Sea - Marty and Peter each using this wonderful device to sing out their half of a brilliant harmony...there can be so much music in just a few notes.
The crowd's reaction as the opening strains of "It's No Reason" begin and Steve sings "Crocodile skin water...." A rousing cheer of recognition for this great song - did we all sing along to "And the colours take me down" ?
Omigod...It Doesn't Change ! YES ! Two songs off Seance ! Well chosen, guys !
The marvellous Tranquility is a favourite of Deanne, my wife, and I because it was our wedding song. And personally if I was Marty Willson-Piper I'd wake up with a smile on my face every day 'cos I'd know it was *me* who gets to play the stunningly heavy E Major chord at the end of this song.
