    Yikes... i really like the song, but i didn't expect it to transfer to a good live version.

    And that's why you always leave a note.

    I didn't know it was possible but....

    I actually like the song even less now.

    I really like this track and the verses sounded fine here, but they need to figure that chorus out.

    Memories are nice, but that's all they are. Prestigious

    I'm sure they'll work out the kinks with it. Verses sound good, they just have to work on how to do that chorus live.

    At least he's singing on the chorus, but ugh... It just sounded so bad.

    Whoa. I think they should just let the chorus be and not sing over it.
  12. That was intense. A lotta good, a lotta rough. Like others have said, there are kinks to work out, but ultimately I think this could become epic live. TV spots are usually really poorly mixed anyway. In a big venue, with the performance smoothed out, this could sound incredible. I love how much of it was really done live (it seemed like Patrick was using vocal pedals for a lot of the effects), which is encouraging. Seeing the song played makes me realize how much interesting stuff is really happening here.

    I think they need to either sing that chorus or let the crazy synth lady voice sing the chorus, but not both.

    Sounded good on the verses but that chorus.... woof live and woof recorded.

    Constant horror and bone-deep dissatisfaction.

    I quote every single word.

    I was trying to work out how they would perform this song live, turns out they haven't really worked it out either.

    This song actually would not be half bad if it wasn't for those insufferable vocal effects in the chorus.

    That was just as awkward as I thought it would be. It's like Patrick turns into a record and starts skipping on the chorus.

    Chorus sounds indeed awkward. I think they would really benefit from one or two live members, specifically for the electronic parts, because this song, like anything from the last two albums, sound a bit empty live.

    Oh damn Patrick looks so disappointed at the end, it breaks my heart

    I heard Centuries, Uma Thurman and Kids Aren't Alright in 2015 live and thought they sounded rather full, personally! Just as much as their other songs live

    D'oh! Prestigious

    Well it's not thaaat bad, but they could get some different approaches to singing the chorus indeed.

    Musically I do enjoy the song, but like others have said, they need a new approach to performing the chorus - because it's doing Patrick no favours. I'm often split on songs like this that are understandably hard to perform live, because on one hand, bands should be encouraged to experiment for their records, but it seems odd to then lead with and take a single to tv that so clearly would have been hard to perform live.
