All that screaming didn't belong in FM.

Sheeeeeeit, son. I had enough of it the first time I heard it.

I hate punk music, and most hard rock. I love melody and harmony. Scream at me, and we're DONE.

Like Homer, I also had my friend walk out of forcing them to watch the Mirage concert. I was so offended and could not believe they were not into it. Looking back maybe it was my twirling in my cape that drove them over the edge.

In the 80s I did not like NTF Mirage but now its one of my favorite songs from that concert. I love watching Chris bang that piano and clap. The way she shakes her head back and forth is so cool. I love the banter between John, Mick and Lindsey.

Homer is so sensitive to Lindsey's rock out performances vocally and with guitar. I don't get it. So if I SCREAM AT YOU, YOU WILL DISAPPEAR?!!!!??

You dont like punk music but like Law and Order? Got it. Ok. Everyone thought it was cool when Stevie screamed at the end of Rhiannon but Lindsey cant do it? Ok Got it!

Personally, that umpteen-minute Not That Funny performance caught on the Mirage concert video is one of my favorite FM live performances. Christine exits and returns at just the right moments. The guys have this extended, intimate moment on stage that is, even with the goofy mugging and gestures, quite sophisticated and well-executed. The return of the honky-tonk piano signals at first a sly, sexy passage, and then an all-out party romp.

Very close to how I feel about it. I love watching a band play. and interact. Not just rushing through songs to get through them.

Apparently, NTF is only for hardcore fans. I like the album version okay. As John wrote, ah ah ah ah OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WAHHHHH was what drove my friends away from the Mirage video.

Scream at me and I will disappear.

I probably would hate Law and Order now. I got it at the height of my fandom. They could do no wrong, THEN. It's a quirky, freaky deaky album, that's my favorite LB solo album. And you know, by comparison, I've never really been into Go Insane, because I had wandered away from the band for a few years, when it came out. So I didn't give it the chance it deserved.

I never warmed up to Go Insane (though I’ve always known it was very well done). Compared to Law and Order and Mirage it seemed (seems) humorless and slick—its insistent professionalism points to what would be the calculated moments on Tango.

Out of the Cradle is as polished but the music and the performances are inspired and warm.
