I don't understand why everyone wants "the classic ATDI live experience". These guys are much older and do *much* less drugs. Look at the live footage from Canberra right before they broke up in 2001...Cedric is trying to rip his mouth open and Jim Ward looks like he just came off the set of a Walking dead episode. I'm definitely excited whenever the decide to play again and would love to see some of that old energy again though.

Puncture in the Radax Permutation takes the cake for me. It's the song I've used to test out every new set of headphones or speakers for years. And that transition at 2:20 is just the best.

Shirley is such a class act. It says a lot when she walks off stage and lets Marissa destroy the crowd form guitar orbit with her own bandmates.

Two of my favorite lyrics from 2012 in this one song.

I'm trying to remove the "Cursive" from this equation and determine if I would like the song anyway. Leaning towards the negative on that...

I can't get any of them to work. Too many redirects.

Comparisons to Kate Bush are okay—Natasha is definitely a contemporary artist that drew at least some of her inspiration from those before her, like every other musician. But to lead off an article with a direct implication that there would have never been Bat for Lashes without Kate Bush (hence the world, "offspring") is kinda lame.

Actually, why can't she just like whatever bands she likes at the moment?
