If I had any criticism, it would only be that I would love to hear more of Kasim's voice. He and Jessie provided awesome harmonies to TR, those three voices really blend nicely. I just would have loved to also hear TR and Jessie backing up Kasim. I know K has more of a love song voice as opposed to grinding out hard rock, and yes, this was a great hard rock show, so hard to fault the boys for making that choice.
I'll admit I've always enjoyed the softer songs Todd does, but this was a fun, rocking night. While I would have loved the band to go for more than the 90 minutes they played, I'll admit I got my money's worth and then some. Jessie got sounds from his guitar that must make his mentor proud, and I'm sure Todd has nothing but the utmost respect for his peer on the axe. And what can you say about Prairie. solid, amazing drummer, never too much.
Probably the two stand out songs of the night to me, were: Black Maria, and Hawking. Both were instantly my favorite versions of those songs - AMAZING.
He's still got it. Better than ever. Don't miss this tour.
