Sound: Spencer's vocals were mind blowing throughout the entire show. Aaron's singing was also very impressive and improved since the Survive, Kaleidoscope DVD... Tim McTague used a Gibson Les Paul Studio throughout most of the show, but the rest he used his Gibson faded SG... James used his custom First Act. The guitars were very good, but it felt as if you could only really here Tim playing. But over all the quality of the vocals and music were very very good. // 9
Perfomance: 01.Breathing In A New Mentality: Aaron just walked out with a strobe light blinking and he just started playing the drum intro, then it grew dark when Spencer came out and he just whailed "I'm the desperate, You're the saviour!!!"
02.In Regards To Myself: They wasted no time from the time the first song ended, they used the broken clock sound intro to start this song and it really moved everyone!!!
03.It's Dangerous Business Walking Out Your Fron Door: Spencer greeted the crowd and thanked everyone for coming and told us it was time for an old song and it grew dark... Then the spot light went from Tim to James because of the shared guitar intro and Aarons singing really blew me away on this song...
04.Emergency Broadcast: The End Is Near: for this song, Spencer went and got his First Act guitar to play and scream which was phenominal!
05.You're Ever So Inviting: I went crazy on this song because it is one of my favorites! Tim played a guitar solo then they went into a song which was very awesome!
06.I Don't Feel Very Receptive Today: Spencer did the shout for another old song and then he just screamed "This door has been shut for days!!!" to the song...
07.The Only Survivor Was Miraculously Unharmed: Spencer went crazy on this song as well as Aaron behind the drum kit... It was the best mosh pit I've been in too!
08.A Boy Brushed Red, Living In Black And White: the last song they played off "They're Only Chasing Safety" and it was mind blowing! Spencer jumped on everyone when everyone yelled "Tremble".
09.Returning Empty Handed: a lot of people went nuts for this song... The opening song when they were on "The Dirty South tour" which was really fun when everyone tried to stage dive and they couldn't get past the barricade...
10.Desperate Times, Desperate Measures: the "last song" which was awesome because they played the video behind Aaron on the projector screen. Aaron's singing was like an angel on this song. It was great!
11.Too Bright To See, too Loud To hear: the came back and played this song which I was impressed because Spencer's singing was very satisfactory and then some!!!!
12.Writing On The Walls: the last song and the one with most energy... On the breakdown when Spencer screamed "We Walk Alone!" got everyone moving and it was so energetic I didn't want to leave! // 10
Overall Impression: The show was at Bogart's in Cinncinati, Ohio on October 30, 2008. The opening bands were:
Person L - missed them
The Devil Wears Prada - missed them
Saosin - awesome!
The tickets were only $18.50 and totally worth it! I would've payed more if I had too.
The most unforgettable moment was when a guy kept yelling "When The Sun Sleeps" and Spencer said "Knock it off buddy or we'l leave now". That was funny. And I will go to every Underoath gig until they break up or until I meet them! // 10
