(I was a big fan back in the day and saw them in Southampton on the Hysteria tour and Earls Court on the Adrenalize tour. They were my fave band in the mid 80s).

Joe is a lot better than I thought he would be.
Phil is far too loud and I could only hear Viv when he soloed (twice was it?)
I'm sorry to say this but Phil is just not a great guitar player. The tone is mega processed and his playing is just sloppy and I was totally distracted by his constant posing (which I know rock stars are supposed to do but....) and badly overplaying!
Why is Viv in this band?

I have to say I was disappointed after loving the "In The Round" video, but still love the first 4 albums.

Mark Hollis is a genius
