1 4 , and 1 gave it a poor 1 !!!
No Man deserves heaps more than that . This release has less tracks than 2009 s Mixtaped , but captures the progression in those artists' interest in developing the music of No Man , on the Live format .
Playing live is not just repeating the work from the studio onstage , but feeling the song . The audience . The ' times ' . Etc . That gives the music life . "Close your eyes" was played live last year 2012 , in some Live dates in August and that's the type of song , that benefits and matures - if you will - if given that treatment
In the studio is one thing , but Live is another . And these days Bands that can satisfy tour per se , give a solid message to its audience that they're going for something perhaps more bold , if you can catch or read the boldness of the Live projects by these types of bands .
They need no more introduction . Many by now know them very well .
Their work is really over the top . They have other musical ventures , but in NM , is where S Wilson is seen in a different avenue than P Tree . And Tim Bowness' input to the fare - reading his entries on his Blog are quite valid . Is amongst the finest I've seen since early 70's Yes , King Crimson , Pete Sinfield . Genesis , Premiata FM and others ... Robin Guthrie is one of the other UK musicians whom I see on a similar plain , or level land as these artists .
