Thanks flips,i was hoping you would post these reviews again as you usually do ;)
They have just started and i try to keep an open mind.So far i get the feeling their set is just a little too short to make it really interesting or exciting.If they could add four or five songs more it would be a lot easier to please everybody.

Yeah, I wasn't too excited about this tour, but will do the odd googling now and then to see if I can find reviews.  :D

 I am so fed up with the so called fans moaning about the songs not sounding exactly like on the CD when they play live, would it kill them to check out some live clips on Youtube before they went to a show?

I've reached the point where comments like that make me laugh."Adam completely butchered Mr.Jones ":D
These people are lucky the band is doing this co-headlining thing where they will most likely hear the "hits" they want to hear and not many songs with very long alts.

Seriously!  This tour is what every "critic" that complained about drunkenness has been craving for the last 20 years.


Flips, rather than googling, you should set google alerts so that when you go to google news you have sections for cc, adam, etc.

always makes me smile when people complain that the Crows dont sound like they do on cd you would think after all these years people would realise its not what a Crows live show is all about

I was talking about this recently, because I saw a bunch of other 90s bands at Kaaboo, and most of them were exceptionally dull as live acts. You can feel the weight on them of feeling required to play the same songs at every show, year after year. Weezer, Live, Alanis Morrissette, the Wallflowers... just dreary performance after dreary performance. The only band from the Crows' era that seemed like they were still fresh was the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Even a mediocre night with the Crows isn't as depressing as a Live performance.

Also, LOL at the idea that Adam "improvised" in Palisades Park and Mr. Jones.
