This was a stunning performance from a band that has consistently (more or less) been producing music of the highest quality over the last thirty years or so. The set was drawn largely from the latest album Between Dog and Wolf, but there was also robust representation from other albums spanning their career. Well thought out choices gave the audience a satisfying blend of furious rockers, reflective ballads and all of the other shades and styles that this surprisingly versatile band can deliver with confidence. This reviewer has seen a lot of live bands over the years but hearing NMA belting out No Rest, Lust for Power and Wonderful Way to Go was something special. If you are a fan of bands that ignore trends and focus on excellent song writing (Justin Sullivan shares my iPod space with Elvis Costello, Ian McNabb, Thom Yorke and Tom Waits), and like your music to have energy and passion, then check this band out.
