    Really, $52 for an hr and 20 mins and one encore song without the band, what a sellout, shold of known it when he signed with Warner. Also, the crowd was a joke. He didn't even break a sweat for god's sake. And the poster even sucked. The only good thing of the night was the venue. Our train ride from Philly was longer than the set.

I've just seen them at Brighton Corn Exchange on the UK lg of the tour, and contrary to whats been said i actually appreciated the brevity of the set. I much prefer seeing a band play for 70 or 80 minutes as opposed to dragging on for 2 hours +, and a one song encore is perfect. Quality, not quantity.

I thought cinder was good, I also liked a couple of other tunes as well. I just thought he could of played longer and could of jammed out longer. There all professional musicians, they should of improvised a little, it sounded to rehearsed just like the new album sounds over-produced. Also, one encore without the band was a bit rediculous.

obviously our opinions differ. it takes a long time to hone together a set that is two and a half hours long. there were 11 people on stage. this band hasnt been playing together for too long. how long had My Morning Jacket been playing together before you saw them? your opinion is not lame, that was stupid of me to say. i have seen him 3 times in northampton mass, and i have been listening for years. But, if someone is just now becoming a fan, its cool they dig the music. Who cares how long someone has been a fan? no fan owns the artist or the music. did you at least like the songs you heard? what did you think of cinder and smoke?

thats your opinion, I've been a fan of his for years now and that show was a cop-out. I've seen him in New York several times and those shows were amazing. How many times have you seen him or did you just start listening to him like half the people there last night who just wanted to sit there and hear his radio songs. I would expect if your playing Radio City that you would go above and beyond, but that was just a quick rehearsed mess. He should take some lessons from My Morning Jacket who rocked out for over two and a half hrs when they played there, thats a real band; not just someone who is in it for the money.

that show was not at all lame. it was great. it was obvious that a lot of work went into getting all of those songs ready. your comment is actually lame.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the relationship between the set length and your train ride from Philly as much a fault of the geographical separation between New York City and Philadelphia as the band? My train ride was twice as long as the set, but I thought it was worth every minute, and worth every penny.
