TR @ Royal Festival Hall London 7/15/2004

Review by Troy Van Leeuwen (Switch to

Ideally, I would have made it to one of the other UK shows as London audiences are notoriously reticent to let themselves go or be seen to be having too much fun at a gig (sorry for the generalisation, but it's sadly true), but this gig suited my schedule so RFH it was and what a night.

The whole evening was a pure joy from the blasting rock out of I.S.P. and the Nine Inch Nails crunch of Liars to the blissed out chill of Flaw. 10 out of 10 to Todd for getting the mainly comatosed audience to swear! Apart from the venue being seated and the crowd being a bit lacklustre until the last 2 songs, the evening was a total triumph. Todd is in in better voice than ever and the choice of material was eclectic and contemporary.

The great thing with Todd is that you don't know what you're gonna get each gig. His eclecticism makes him who he is and whilst my personal love is Todd rocking out with his six string, this gig had something for everyone. Those people who wanted a greatest hits should have stayed home with their cd collections. Those that were disappointed defy belief. It was a music show...what did you want the guy to do? Come on stage and end poverty on earth and a cure for all diseases known to man and yet to be discovered??!!

If you had chilled, let the experience wash over you and embrace it, you would have had a perfect night like we did. Todd, you remain a legend.
