10,000 Maniacs / Press

“A few concert highlights: stately renditions of "Eden" and "Rainy Day," heartfelt takes on "What's the Matter Here?" (about child abuse) and "Cherry Tree" (about illiteracy), and scorching versions of "Stockton Gala Days" and The Cure's "Just Like Heaven." The band also performed three new or fairly new tunes -- including "Gold," a moving tribute to Robert Buck that featured lead vocals by Erickson. I wish 10,000 Maniacs had also played the just-released "Triangles," a beautiful mid-tempo song that's among the group's best ever, but you can't have everything!”
