Review by Richard J. Atkins (Switch to
Todd's performance was in sharp contrast to JJ's. It truly does show how professionalism is interpreted differently by two artists. I agree that Rundgren's level of polish could (and should) be much higher.
In addition, I have seen the one-man band shows for years. I'd appreciate some differentiation in them (try Hello It's Me on guitar, drop the 'overplayed numbers'--something different, please!). Afterlife was a good attempt at that. Which leads to my closing statement:
Pretending to Care was worth the entire cost of the ticket!
