Songs like "Lasso," "Consolation Prizes," "Fences" and "Armistice," which normally sound perfectly okay digitally spewed from the comfort of earbuds, didn't really translate well live. They felt forced, making the obligation of the sometimes blinky light show behind the band feel more like the place where moths go to die rather than a complement to a concert by a band that is supposed to make you want to dance, not yawn.
