meant to say that I actually kind of like the "technoish" stuff
they did at the beginning of the set. It was something different,
at least. What I could have done without was the half-hour long
Emerson tribute at the end, which is even more painful in the
RealAudio broadcast with the glitch that makes it more like
45-50 minutes long.

it's not my favorite album of theirs. I knew it was going to
be trouble right off the bat, with that cheesy hypnotist dialog
at the beginning.

bit about rock concert encores. Something like "I went to see
Ozzy Osborne, and after the main set he left the stage. Came
back about five minutes later and acted all surprised to see
