Can't believe the following this shitty group has and its a bummer they're at outside lands. Was hoping for someone who isn't garbage and boring.
I shouldn't have even gone after seeing their live stream from ultra. That show was mediocre. The overly long renditions of DANCE and A/V/D were weak. You add being 25 minutes late and not playing soulwax's phantom remix or anything else good from the old album and this show was just plain embarassing. I'm still kicking myself for leaving nero early

I thought it was great, but I'm a fan and have never seen them before. There's no doubt it could've been a lot better. If you're a casual fan or have never heard of them then this may have been disappointing. I was really bummed it was so short.

Hopefully that 25 minute delay prevented them from playing most of the songs from their sophomore release.
wow these guys suck. Mainstage for this lame light show and boring music.
for what it's worth i showed up late (or so i thought, apparently) coming straight from gotye and enjoyed everything i heard. the way the new tracks were worked into the set had definitely improved from their ultra appearance. the super-long version of AVD was pretty silly given the shortened set time, but honestly what are you expecting when all they're really doing is mimicking actual musicianship up there. their stage show sucked (as it has barely changed) but i guess i knew what to expect.
I had a blast. Go fuck yourselves.
The two can't mix for shit anyway, what is all the complaining about?

I was definitely pissed that they started so late but I had an amazing time. Definitely was left wanting more though.
Really pissed about the lateness, and it only aggravated me more when I had to listen to Audio Video Disco for half of the set. Nobody wants to hear that shit. I still had fun when they showed up, especially for Genesis. Thought their mixing was done extremely well, though it seemed more appropriate for a two hour set.
But then Waters of Nazareth never came, so I take back everything good I said about them
So who else saw Company Flow sounding fantastic in the Gobi? Loudest show I saw. I planned to see a bit of Justice, but left for the Gobi after 20 minutes. Justice started as I made my out and sounded like shit.
Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.
