Live Review from Underground 44:
instantly recognizable as a pop-rock band, they can be enjoyed by any fan of live performances. not particularly distinctive but full of all-around noisy goodness. they have just a touch of attitude. they seem to be trying to reach something, but not quite sure what. it’s certainly a nice, if somewhat rockingly ambiguous ride, though. some bits of uncertainty prevent me from fully mentally merging with their message though. a cross between them and “collective soul” would be fantastic. a few of their later songs showed pretty strong confidence, i’d love to hear more of that boldness.
The Darlings： 九十年代時看九十年代的Bass手，會覺得沒有什麼大不了，但在二十世紀再看九十年代出身的Bass手，會覺得現在已經沒有什麼人有這種技巧了。其實不單Bass手，樂隊三人演奏出來的聲音都是具有音質，而又非常整齊，給人一種成熟的感覺，沒有一定的演出經驗也不能做到這個效果。當晚Keyboard手缺席，但在這樣的情況下也不會太過不夠Full，只是在結他Solo時會有那種「突然進入Solo」的感覺，不夠順暢。
