I, as much as others here, still fall for what's left of Shane's charisma, but then: what can you expect from an unbiased observer. I hardly understood anything he said (and what I understand I wasn't too pleased with), his singing we all probably understand only because we already know the songs inside out anyways. and one hardly call his physical appearance and abilities heartening, can one? (on this point, respect to Bruce Springsteen and others who are still going strong). Besides, there never is anything unexpected on the setlist, let alone a brand new song, because the singer will not show up to rehearse anyway (Philip's words, not mine). In earnest: who, apart from us true believers, would not remark what was remarked here?
Yet what I disliked about the review was that no reference was made to the band, I wasn't in Hamburg and have to rely on what I heard in Münster and Amsterdam, but at least the reviewer could have remarked that there was some tight band up on stage, and that they and their crew did a good job in amping them hard-too-amp instruments. Sure James threw in some fab accordion playing every now and then (won't comment on other instruments for lack of knowledge).
Hoping to still be tolerated here.
