Kelly Gray era Ryche from 2001,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live Evolution [DVD]  (DVD)
I was a little disappointed with this concert. Although the presentation and band performance is fine, i expected a little more from the set list. Billed as a 'live evolution' there are performance suites from each Ryche album. The problem for me is the selections they chose from their classic albums. For a band that now alleges that Geoff Tate didn't want to perform the very early material, its in abundance here, and too much for my liking with several cuts from the EP and The Warning. Where are cuts like 'Walk In The Shadows' from Rage For Order? Mindcrime and Empire are quite well represented. Promised Land is more or less ignored, only I Am I and a rather unlive sounding Damaged are here. The backing vocals are definitely pre-taped, probably because of the much missed Chris Degarmo. Hear In The Now is virtually ignored, beside Right Side Of Mind. Most disappointing was the lack of tracks from the current album at the time, Q2K which i was looking forward to hearing. Where are 'Losing myself', 'Sacred Ground' etc Instead we only get the lackluster 'Breakdown'? There maybe fans that will love this but you may want to exercise some caution before buying.
