A band at the very top of their form
on 28 June 2011
I was at this gig and in 35 years of seeing bands, this was the best single gig I've ever been to. Biffy are an unparalleled combination of energy, musicianship, interesting time-signatures and, above all, killer, killer songs. They were great at the Hammersmith Apollo a few months previously but at this, their first headlining Wembley show, they were on unbelievable form. I was absolutely stoked when I heard they were going to release the lot as a CD/DVD package; I ordered it immediately.
Well the postman called an hour or so ago and listening to the CD now, it's everything I remembered and more. This documents a band at the very top of the tree (a summit that most have no hope of reaching); immaculately crafted songmanship combined with incredible dynamism. The energy coming off this CD is phenomenal and the song selection leaves nothing out. For those of you used to Only Revolutions and Puzzle, have a listen to "57" and the incredible "Justboy" from further back in their catalogue - they're everybit just as good.
I've not penned an Amazon Review before but Biffy forced me to. Can't wait to see the DVD...
