    Great live show. Many good memories associated with this band. Underrated.

    Understand This Is A Dream was pretty much my soundtrack freshman year of college. I think I saw them play in a little record store in Boise, Idaho in 1999, or maybe it was 2000, I can't remember, must be getting old! :)

    I will always have a soft spot for this band. First found out about them in 2004, got a chance to meet them in 2005 and got to see their reunion tour in 2010!

    I love these guys. I was lucky enough that my band back then opened for them, twice. We got to hang out with them a bit. It was awesome!

    actually, I think it gets the opposite of boring. I was recently reminded how much I used to love this band, and listening to them again made me realise that I still very much do so.

    Just played these guys for the first time in what I estimate is about 6 years... Don't know why I stopped listening in the first place! Awesome.
