It Can Never Be the Same - Houston, Toyota Center 14-May-2016 from itsaperfectday on Vimeo.
That is a really good sound recording! Thanks for sharing. Now we can finally hear the layered guitars, sounds great! Cant wait for a proper release of the song.
Sounds similar to Underneath the stars. Very nice song, nothing "new" but beautiful.
I agree. I think a lot of it has to do with Jason drumming 4/4 hi-hat in the start, just like UTS. When he moves on to the usual 8/4 the song gets another feel.
This song fulfills the expectations a cure song should have: convey emotions.thumbs up !

I know, it's got that Disintegration vibe with a touch of the Faith album (especially the title track itself), that's why most fans love it. But basically, it's not only merely a copy of those, it's a copy of a copy entitled "This morning". So, go crazy about it, my favourite new song is "Step into the light", such a powerfull and catchy song!
I was hoping they would play the new stuff Robert was talking about that aparently sounds nothing like the cure has ever done. That's more exiting for me but you know, I'm the kind of fan that loves The top and Wild Mood Swings.
Hopefully we'll get to hear some of those songs as the tour goes on. Reeves is an incredible guitarist, but also very capable at making arrangements of his own. Bowie didn't write with him for so long without reason. I can only imagine he and Robert have come up with some very new "rock" sounds for the band, but it's unclear if they'll release or play any of it. On a side note, at least from the videos so far, Reeves sounds kind of low in the mix. I'm excited to hear what he brings to the wide range of songs they'll likely play over the course of the tour. Hopefully it's just the sound isn't very clearly reflected from camera phones or whatever these videos are recorded on. For anyone who remembers the Wish tour, Porl brought the house (well, arena) down on a lot of their catalogue, even songs that weren't really guitar-driven. Reeves plays differently, but I'd think Robert would want him to do something similar.
