First of all, let me just say that it has been a long, long time since I ever thought I would see Roger Waters live. I have been a huge fan of his work, I just resigned myself to the fact that he probably wouldn't tour again and in '92 I pretty much gave up. Last night at the Coors Ampitheatre, the culmination of years of respect of Waters work came to a head for me. The first songs from The Wall were good, and I was pleased to see Roger playing bass. I liked the way he chose part two of In the Flesh as the opener. It definitely made you realize that this is a different man than the Floyd era Waters. His backdrops were low key and provided simple visual aid, but left your ears front and center imersed in the music. I thought going into the show that I wouldn't like the female singers on Mother, but I thought they did a wonderful job and it provided a great counterpoint, lyrically, to shift to the feminine voice on the chorus. The Final Cut segmaent was O.K. and I guess I expected it to sound more like the album versions. Roger was trying new vocal melodies for these songs and it was not always on pitch. The crowd was nice and quite through most of the show, but during the most quiet parts, there would always be some random guy screaming at the top of his lungs. There was no sort of apropriatness to this and he seemed to be doing it just to get under Rogers' skin. Pity. Since I would rate the show as excellent, I'll just say a few more of what I would regard as my complaints. I don't think that Doyle Bramhall II has a very good voice to do the Gilmour parts. His voice lacks that sweetness of Dave's and it is almost as if Roger asked him to sound like Dave, but not all the way. If your going to replace a guy's singing parts, either have the guy do it exactly like Dave or nothing like it. It seemed strange every time Doyle would sing. Anyway, I loved the Amused to Death stuff, perfect sense was absolutely gorgeous. The dark side songs were not necessary I thought. RADIO KAOS would have been great. Then theres "Each Small Candle". I think the words are excellent, and it speaks about our the horrors of war in a profound way. I do not, however, think that the chord sequence being used does the song justice. I don't know where Roger gets his chord patterns from, but they are less than effective. ESC sounded to me like the theme song to the oompa loompa's in Willy Wonka. The song just was unable to move me with the words because the effect of the chords was so unnatractive to my ears. This is obviously a very subjective area, so this is probably a good place to leave it to someone else to respond with their opinion.
