Also, while it's still really cool that he did a couple of SYL songs, playing those 2 songs is kind of a cop out. If he played All Hail the New Flesh and Shitstorm that really would have been something.

The most underwhelming thing about that set is that it really doesn't even come close to covering his whole career. There isn't 1 whole song from Terria, nothing from Physicist (i'm counting Kingdom as a song from Epicloud at this point), no Ki, no Ghost, and no Punky Bruster. I wasn't expecting, nor did I want there to be stuff from Devlab in the set but I think the albums I just listed were all worthy of being covered at least a little bit.
I was there and thought the same thing about the setlist. It's all the same shit I have seen him playing over and over again. I really wanted to see Hyperdrive with Anneke but then he does that acoustic shit. The set was in serious need of some Accelerated Evolution. I thought most of the stories were pretty lame too, and it didn't help that the video screen was way out of sync the entire night. You would think they would get something like that worked out when they are doing a DVD taping. The sound in the venue was way too low too, I hate that. I was just glad I finally got to see Anneke perform live with Devin, that made it worth it for me.
