......That stuffy black coat certainly overstayed its welcome. I was hoping she'd take it off during Dopamint at the "Start to strip" part. Alas.

-EDIT-

Favourite performances: Kaze ni ayatte yuke, Osorubeki otonatachi, Denki no nai machi, The whole encore portion (with those RIDICULOUS outfits)

This was their 'theatrical' show ala JCHI. I enjoyed most of it, but I definitely think that the Ultra C show is heads and shoulders better than this one.

Oldies shoot me, but I reckon Mirror Ball has a surprisingly good rendition. That outro is really something.

And Himitsu. It's the rap version. And they made it ENJOYABLE instead of GOSH DARN AWFUL!

Also, is it me, or was there a lot more Ringo playing the guitar this tour?

Yeah, I like this. It's probably blind fanboy, but I'm in my element when I watch this.

Full review to come later. Have to watch it again with pen in hand.

Immediate reaction: The whole first section was okay but it picked up in the second half and I thought the last 45 minutes were incredible.

I wish whoever mixed the sound had jacked up Ringo's voice track a couple of notches. Sometimes she was almost inaudible. Or maybe I'm going deaf.

I've never been more impressed with Ringo's control. I don't mean her voice, although there's that too---I mean her stage presence. Just about everything she did, her posture and gestures, seemed calculated for effect. That probably puts off people who want to see spontaneity and somebody "losing it." She never loses it. It's almost inhuman, the way she holds herself. She's like the Meryl Streep of J-rock.

Yeah, she never really "lets loose." I'm fine with that when its over done, like GX/EM, and not like "im.trying.to.act.human" like in Spa and treatment or Domestic Virgin line.

The most natural she seemed was :dynamiteout:

...your "but" seems like you imply disagreement, yet Zazen is performed in the manner like GX/EM for the most part. Unless her individual performance is not the reason you brought it up.
