MY PASSION AND MADINA LAKE LIVE REVIEW

“You’re on form,” Laurence Rene (vocals) comments. The crowd are not the only ones. Stripped down of the synthesisers and over-produced sound of their records only improves the songs. The guitars are louder, the sound is heavier, and it makes for a much better experience. Rene commands the stage well, even if it does seem too small for he and his band mates attempts at stage acrobatics. At times they almost collide with each other. read more
