the "ala" is what i was going for, but i couldn\'t remember those three simple letters to save my damn life...

yes, psych bfast had plenty of great songs (obviously) but there were also plenty of less mature songs, too. plus, in my mind at least, they often forced the psychedelia too much in the olden days. and csr definitely has the forced feel to it.

but really, i\'ll stop now.

no need to stop m8, that\'s what these threads are for, discussing stuff, that is..!

I\'ve heard from different people in different posts and face to face that they think the song writing is more mature these days. I guess I never totally agreed with that sentiment. I mean, some of the lyrics were crazier and made less sense from a sane point of view back in the dizzy. But then again, a lot of the older/original PB era songs are totally epic ... mooboos, buquebus, puppetry, etc etc etc... and then again, a lot of the older/orginal PB era songs are great examples of more traditional songwriting ... ? and the Mind, Eppy1 (sometimes words just get in the way when you\'re speaking the Language of the Gods ;) )... um, others too.

As for the forced psychedelia, I dunno. They used to be a lot more funky, and Tim would play a shitload of notes on that Telecaster which I thought was pretty badass. But I really think 2006 has been the most Psychedelic year for this band... with the new synth FX, bringing back oldschool trax, re-creating jams and coming up with awesome segues.

Like Tim said early on in the year, oh-six has been a year for new tricks!

I was always down with the old school psychedelia though.... lots of the early shows I went to I definitely had to take a minute to find my bearings before I could find the door to bat country on the way out ! Like sheep in a herd :lol:

among other things..

well, yeah, the lyrics have definitely gotten away from the sillier side of things (which i didn\'t really mind), but musically they\'ve grown leaps and bounds. now, mooboo\'s (still my favorite bfast tune), puppetry, etc, have the elements that seem more mature - a full arc, not just an instant-rage kind of approach - but all of the newer tunes have this. it started, i think, with real radio and has really come on strong in the last year\'s worth of tunes. good things, for example is all about building the bittersweet, furute peek is similiar, honeybutter, while rage-ish, also feature more of a musical arc than it would have, say, three or four years ago. surreal radio could be played on the radio (as opposed to most of real radio), late>exposure is a brilliant combination of the old and the new.....

i guess what i\'m getting at, is that for the first time, their songs don\'t require you to be ready for a full on assault right from the get go. they draw the listener in and then grow until the gigantic jam is needed, not just there. and you\'re right, some of their songs were great examples of more traditional songwriting. but now i think they\'re managing to figure out how to combine the traditional elements with their own, unique approach. and its that synthesis that i think is what makes them sound so much more mature. then add in that that maturity gives the songs even more potency and i think that\'s why more folks have been able to appreciate what they\'ve been doing lately. its familiar, but altogether new.

and this year may well be more psychedelic than others (thank you boomerang pedal!) but it doesn\'t seem as forced. some of the things they used to do vocally, for instance, seemed like they were really trying for a certain sound, as opposed to just allowing it to happen. and that\'s an easy one to figure out why, simple age and mastery of craft. i remember thinking in early 05 that they\'d gotten away from those sorts of vocal stylings, mostly, i thought, because of the approach to the real radio tunes and wanting them to be more accessible. and i think it only helped! now, instead of trying to make it psychedelic, it just is. plus, they\'ve added more trancyness to their sound, so that helps, too.  and they\'re doing it in their own way, instead of just trying to make it sound like things they\'d heard before. that\'s what i meant by \'forced\'.

It just looks strange to never stop with that many songs???  Al Z. any word on why they went straight thru???

Nope, we were told before they started that it would be a single, 2-hour set.

I believe a Puppetry and a Slipknot are missing from the setlist.  

Great mix of tunes!

who worked merch???sell anything??

Adrian was selling cds at the end.  I saw some folks walking away with cds, some of whom bought all the audio available.

I bought a Timmy Tour shirt from Gencs at the beginning.

this thread has turned into a circus (w/the exception of al z -- just answering questions/reporting on the show). come on now, guys.

I looove Cosmic spaceway rhyme because the notes in the slow solo literally cause the muscles around my "sacral chakra" (uterus!) to relax.  the later part "crash/flash etc." gets so light and transcendentally beautiful.

Funny you should mention that.  One of the magazines last month had "The Return of Psychedelic Music".  In giant letters on the front cover.......

Confirmed there was a Puppetry>Slipknot>Puppetry in the set but the text nvr made it to me.
