The Cult - Terminal 5 in NYC 9-11-09

The Cult - Terminal 5
NYC 9-11-09

I have to admit a little trepidation about this show. I always liked the Love album but really dug Electric so I was a bit disappointed in that they were playing the whole Love album and a smattering of other "hits". I was flat out wrong. As good as Love is in the studio, live it flat out burns up the stage. The band played great. Ian's voice is no worse for wear and Billy Duffy is a post-modern guitar hero.

If Love came out today, the critics would be falling all over themselves trying to make it the next Nevermind. What a great mix of sounds all swirling together. It was just plain fuckin' awesome folks. Check out some videos from last night.

If you haven't yet, grab the expanded version of Love. You can get it at Amazon Downloads for a measly $9.99 for the 2 cd set loaded with lots of b-sides and alternate mixes.
