Review by MJ_Calleys

MJ_Calleys As an Also Sprach head, I want to adress that specifically.

Being played in an encore with a looming curfew in 15 minutes you would have expected and quick romp through the song with little foreplay or tension. The tickling tension is what makes or breaks great 2001s.

In this case there is a short build to the first two full movements, but then they drop into a patient "island tour ish" full on funk dance party for a little while. This builds to them only playing the front half of the central movement.

Then they drop into the sexy thing and tweeprise reprises but it's really only trey and a little of the others, the underlying flow is still 2001.

Then they perfectly drop back into 2001 and then execute both sides of the central movement, perfectly. Five full 2001 main themes, funk dance party plus hijinks; in an encore!

I was absolutely losing it.

Thank you for this wonderful gift.
