These elements could be deemed creative in their simplicity. Yeah, they're not groundbreaking (not even in a thousand years), but creative nonetheless, considering - I'll repeat myself - we're talking about what should be taken as a pop-rock track.

"Wall of sound" doesn't necessarily translate in "tight comparts of distorted electric guitars assaulting your ears", it could also refer to a Spector-like approach.

And, look, if you want to discuss civically without underlining a single term just to laugh like an idiot about it everything will be fine, otherwise we're done here.

Sorry but I don't feel like writing paragraphs arguing about whether Revolt is terrible or not.

Don't play silly, you know very well what I'm talking about: the substantial difference between expressing your contrary opinion properly (not necessarily writing epic poems, of course) and running the others' ones down by laughing stupidly over a single term drawn from the whole speech.
You think Revolt is terrible? It's perfectly fine, just write it from the start without deriding who you're interacting with. Simple as that.

Starlightís fallen off a cliff since Ď06 and even Ď11 but itís still been a highlight of most gigs Iíve gone to and I love Mattís barrier walk (that last part may be swung by bias of me actually getting involved in it at Leeds).

I really liked Starlight this time around-- the visuals were perfect for it. Getting used to Matt without the guitar.

I'm still not used to Matt without the guitar. Chorus loses all power. I really like the song in its original form which is probably my controversial opinion contribution, so I miss that little punch it had.

Starlight is fine, Uprising is a tragedy. So far I've gotten 2x Matt fondling his tits and 1x Matt staring at his feet so hard in one spot I thought he was going to fall over.

I don't even care if he plays it, just sling a guitar on him and have him at least walk around.

You don't like when it looks like Matt's about to start a rap session? It made me laugh so much! Same with New Kind of Kick-- made me cringe at first when it came on, but it livened up the show's mood. Definitely a guilty pleasure of mine. Good thing the lights weren't on, because I was blushing so much-- so much guilt!

Then started listening to Arctic Monkeys (shock) then a bit of Coldplay (even more shock) so point me in the right direction for some new tunes! 🤘Muse will always be my no1 though

There's the "Other Music" subsection in the "Off-Topic" section of this forum for that.

Maybe there was an ugly face in the audience that scared him...

As for the idea from the last paragraph: no, please, that would be just sad. What's the point of wearing a guitar if you don't have to play it?

SBE was by a mile the best gig I’ve ever been to and one of the best nights of my life full stop


BUT


...the more I think about it, the more Knights closing taints my memory of it. When I remember that, it becomes frustratingly imperfect. Hysteria and PIB are hits but, scattered amongst the rarities, they were fine. MWAH + Knights felt abnormally...normal, in the context of that one show. Just wish I’d been able to get to Matt as he came in to suggest closing with Bliss like I planned but they stopped letting people out of our queue and it was hard enough just getting my BH&R cover to Chris. Even then though - SS, New Born, Futurism, Assassin, Dead Star, Showbiz...hell, even PIB would’ve done in that slot, just something different y’know?

Knights closing gives you a good opportunity to beat traffic, though. People were flooding out during MWAH last time I saw them.
