Tue 30 Sep – Platinum Pied Pipers
So I went to the Platinum Pied Pipers concert in Paradiso, Amsterdam and must say I was a bit disappointed. They were working the Sa-Ra angle with the sound and I simply didn't feel it.
Sa-Ra is a group you feel or don't feel simple as that. PPP (2005) was a group that if you could not feel it you still liked it, this time it wasn't the case.
Maybe I just missed Tiombe Lockheart (excuse me if I wrote your name wrong) I don't know. The singers didn't get the crowd in my opinion. Saadiq was more on the background vocals then when I saw their performance in 2005.
I won't say it was bad, but I expected something better and further advanced then what I got in 2005 not more but definetely not (this) different.
Maybe this explains why I didn't like most of tracks after 2005 including some remixes.
Sigh, I think I lost another great group if there whole album is like this. there where 3 songs I liked out of all of them (about 9-10)2 of them were 'oldies'.
I won't give up on them (yet)
