The Zombies

After 51 years together, the current incarnation of the Zombies isn't quite what it once was. In their British Invasion heyday, the Zombies made music of subtlety and sophistication, culminating in the psychedelic masterpiece Odessey and Oracle. Today's band, led by original singer Colin Blunstone and keyboardist Rod Argent, trades much of the musical and emotional nuance of their vintage work for arena-rock bombast. However, changed or not, these guys are the stuff of legend and worth checking out.

Arena-rock bombast? Has this reviewer heard songs such as "Any Other Way" or "A Moment in Time"? Could not attend this concert, other side of the pond, but if anyone did not go because of this critic's ignorance he should compensate them out of his own pocket.
