Don't really understand some of the comments here really
. Going by the above this was the 6th time I've seen them & I thought they were absolutely fantastic!
Having said that, it's still pretty hard to beat that legendary Electric Picnic gig in 2005 & The Olympia gig was amazing to see them in a relatively small venue. However Phoenix Park was a real disappointment for me.
Last night I thought the sound was pretty good & it was a really balanced set. There's no doubt the new album is fairly "Disco/Electronic" (huge LCD Soundsystem influence), but live I thought it really took off.
I was slightly surprised by how quiet the crowd were, I was expecting a lot more energy. As said before, there always seems to be a lot of "Event Junkies" just there to be there
. However I still seemed to be a magnet for drunken eedjits to come barging into me & then stand there leaning on me
Overall though really enjoyed it......
