Curt Taft - Fan Review Quotes

"I don't even know where to begin, other than saying that the setlist from this show is like something I would have written as some sort of 'fan fiction' setlist."

"Oh wait, no... Cause I don't think I've ever written a dream set and included "Good Morning Freedom."

"But let's start at the beginning. I suppose to really put this into perspective, let's go back to 2011. My first show that year was in Chicago, and being just the second show after their unfortunate hiatus, it featured a bare-bones, hits plus the new song only setlist. As a result, when I saw them for a second time on that tour (in St. Louis) and they surprisingly added "Let It Go," I was ECSTATIC. The sets had become so stale that I basically went CRAZY over them adding a song I had seen them do several times before, just not in a few years."

"From that came the 2012 tour, which saw them finally shake it up a bit by bringing "Women," "Gods Of War," and the Acoustic Medley into the fold (not to mention just barely catching a performance of "It's All About Believin'") and again, I went CRAZY. Just a few changes like that and I was satisfied."
