    The whole set is on YouTube, unless it was taken down for copyright since last night. Beautiful performance, and they debuted all the instrumental tracks off the new record.

    Seriously, if you don't realize this band is special, I don't know what to think.

    I hope they release this as a live album. The Sound with full orchestra is what every song should strive to be.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they did, since they had that album art/cover created for the show.

    I know I'm gona be alone in this, but not really feeling this. Feel like all the additional instrumentation just adds noise, kind of sounds all washed out to me. There's definitely special moments, but I'd rather watch them play their regular set up.

    Just as good as the time Meat Loaf reimagined Bat Out of Hell with an orchestra. This works a lot better for softer songs, but everything is just godly.

    I agree, although I think another big part of it is the room/sound

    Some songs definitely worked better than others. Chocolate was beautiful but I think Love Me and The Sound didn't go as well with their arrangements. The rest were all pretty swell, even though the instrumentals are not usually my first choice. And I've said it a ton already but I still can't believe they haven't played This Must Be My Dream live, I think this could have been a good opportunity with the xylophones and horns.

    I can't stop watching this. It's so damn good. I have so much more appreciation for Please Be Naked and lostmyhead now. If it weren't for the title, that version of Please Be Naked could go straight into a Disney movie.

    I think I like the orchestra behind the band like Metallica S&M. Some cool stuff here though.

    I think Matty kinda realized some songs weren't working out 100%, because he kept bringing up how nerve-wracking it was (which it would be for anyone, I'm sure) because Love Me was kinda awkward in comparison to the rest.
