For me the strongest songs of the night were the songs from Liar. The above mentioned "Truth" was a harbinger of things to come. "Mammon" was just devestating. A great groove and impossible not to react to. The soul ballads, "Sweet" and "Past" were sung to perfection. Truly inspiring. "Soul Brother" is about as fun as it gets. Great crowd pleaser. "God Said" was so intense. Again, Todd sang it beautifully and the band laid down the spacey groove that had the whole place rubber-neckin'. But the MF was "Liar." This is one of Todd's great achievments in my book and damn if he and the band, with some help from pre-recorded tracks, don't pull if off.
The rest of the set list was engaging and wildly entertaining. For me the weakest songs of the night, interestingly enough, came from "One Long Year." "I Hate My Frickin' ISP just kind of lays there instead of rocks there, and Todd has a hard time singing it, and "Hit Me Like a Train" is just really flat. Other than that, this is a great show that you'll take it with you for a long time. And maybe it was just me, but I don't think so, through watery eyes, I looked around to see the whole crowd with the same reaction when he did a very heartfelt, "Hello It's Me." Don't miss this show...it's the Todd experience you've been waiting for!
