It was cool to hear Dark Saga and Disciples of The Lie, but the first really unifying song was probably Blessed Are You, which is far too late in the set to be achieving that. This was a bit of a problem on the last tour too. Jon deserves credit for pulling out different songs, but he has no idea how to pace a setlist.
Good to know I'm not the only person who thinks this. Granted, I haven't seen them doing this set myself, but I felt like this would be the exact problem. And yeah, setlist pacing/song order on the Dystopia tour was weird as well, despite almost every song in the set being great on that tour.
