Oh, my, the wait was worth it. I got into them shortly after they dispersed for other pastures so I'd never had the pleasure. Also, much like with Massive Attack in 2006, though I love the records I didn't expect it to translate so well live. I love being wrong. Beth sounded so haunting, everything was so powerful. Easily the best set of the day; in contention for best of the weekend. And I have liked Third but wow those songs translate live so well. I mean, damn, their music just works so well live. "Threads" was a highlight.

no words can describe the sorrowful exhilaration of this performance. Tears were shed. My feet didn't touch the ground they were playing.
