These are just great musicians who made studio perfected albums and meet from time to time to play together on tour. There's no magick in their live performance, everything sounds forced pushed masturbated and off beat. Sorry to say Anka, but if you see them live, all your dedication will fall into dust.
Interesting point doc but i saw the live twice and i reaaaaaaly want to see them on this cruise. There is not much "magic" in their live performance i could maybe agree, i only perceive pure "magic" in a few bands out there nowadays ... but i surely love to see them perform those songs i love so much. Those songs are my magic :)
I happened to fall in love irremediably with Obscura after one of their live shows here. Until then i simply knew and appreciated the band. I didn't want to go see that show, i was broke and they only opened for Children of Bodom whom i had seen many times before. I told a friend "no more COB for me .... i would love to see Obscura, but i am broke" so I said "pass" but one day i just bought the ticket with my credit card ... an instinct i guess, cause i'm used to going to shows every week :) And guess what, that night i had goosebumps for the entire set and i watched in disbelief, i was probably drooling too cause my mouth was open and i was holding my breath i can tell you that. The songs suddenly had whole new sound in my head ... i guess magic happened.
And besides, i have a magic stick
for real. Figuratively speaking, i guess it's up to us to make our own magic.
