Holy smoke these girls are hot.
Music and performance is supposed to entertaining and fun. Sometimes over analyzing and criticizing just takes the fun out of things. If I was worried about a professional crtitics' point of view, I'd have never taken my wife to see KISS a couple months ago. Hey, it was mindless nostalgia, and my wife had a great time.
Bond sounds perfect for Atlantic City. You may actually have sold more tickets to audiophiles than you could have ever thought possible!
I saw them play in NY on Aug 10, and I thought that it was a great show. These girls can flat out play. Don't hate them because they're beautiful!!! It strikes me as funny that here in the USA, where hype, glitz, and sex appeal rule, Bond is not that widely known. Although in many other countries, where actual musical content is more important, they are very popular. Go figure.
Agree with you about the first album. I like the second a lot also. I missed the Cray concert. I was unable to stay awake that night, so my wife went with a friend. She said it was a good show, that's all I got from her. I did see Norah Jones. Most songs she seemed tired. However, for 4 or 5 songs she really kicked it up. She was on stage for about 1 hour 45 minutes. Amos Lee was the opening act. Where did they find this guy? He kept stopping in the middle of songs and talking to family and friends. Said he was giving us an inprompto living room session. It was annoying and rude to me. I'm glad they only gave him 20 minutes stage time.
