thanks to those who gave me tips...
the first bit was a bit rushed but I'm pleased with the rest. what do you reckon??
There are certain bands and animal collective are most definitely one that cause reviewers to either obscenely gush in the superior notion that they get it or they go over the top in criticism cos they want to go against those who do get it and like it or because they just think they're shite.
That for me was a well balanced review that got across what you are suppose to about live reviews, how the band played and how the crowd responded. Too many reviewers load their columns with pointless shite and 'look how many big words and references I know' pish.
Probably the best review of any of their shows I've seen, I love the jibe at the types whom had shown up to watch them. And you've actually touched on the fact that they can be abit teasing with the whole not playing actual songs for a while. Which seemed to ruin them for me at ATP, but for my friend they were his favourite show of weekend. But yea, cool review :)
much - they definitely split opinions in the group of people I was with.
