".. a set list filled with some of the band’s best songs. It was a joy to stand and feel Ian Gibson’s deep, nimble bass mesh perfectly with Nigel Pollard’s light, detailed but powerful drumming with Tony McGuinness providing layers of richly expressive but powerfully rhythmic guitar over the top, relative newcomer Will Hicks pulling off that rare trick of ensuring keyboards integrate perfectly rather than smothering or simply being lost. The sheer musicality of the songs was a wonder to behold. Amongst them all stands Garce, a quiet, modest figure, but whose vocals provide the band’s unique heart. Alaska was an early highlight, as was a tense In Flux, but really picking highlights from such a strong set is relatively pointless, two encores were bayed for and received rapturously."
