THeres no need for them to add two minutes of solos and YEAH YEAH YEAHs and HEEES before they even get to the lyrics on the bridge. And I hate that he doesnt jsut go for the melody. There are so many songs that he tries anyways. This one is one where he actually should just go for it.


I agree with all of this, but it is what it is, this is Corduroy now.

The immortality with original lyrics is pretty great. Doesnt come off poorly at all.

Also, ed sounds great on taillights fade

Yeah I’ve been working through the boots today, these shows are better than I thought.

So, I think night 1 is the better show. Night 2 wasn’t bad, but Eddie was running out of gas in that encore.

It is quite good. Ed sounds mostly good for all these Home shows.

I'm only about 6 songs in and I think it sounds great so far; Release was very good (not as good as the '10 or '06 versions, but still very nice). I do remember Ed's voice struggling later in the shows (well documented in this thread), but I am looking forward to getting to Tremor Christ, which I remember he over-performed on.

Yeah, I listen to shows in 5-6 song batches now. Not ideal, just how my schedule goes.

It's fine...but why did Ed feel the need to talk over the intros to so many songs these two nights? That and the insertion of Fenway-related lines into so many songs really hurts their re-listenability.

I get the feeling that he really wanted to do that marijuana bit but the band started playing the song to get him to hurry it up given the curfew.
