Beautiful.
And bloody mean of him not to play these more often earlier in the tour.

it is! and so real, you could almost see the narrator sitting by a warm fire writing the lines, and the girl in a side by side scene, walking through a blinding MN type snow.

it also says 'just so you don't ever forget who's the best writer and interpreter'

The new, understated "sound" Bob debuted in 2013 is finally starting to pay some dividends. North Country is one of the songs I thought he'd lost the plot for permanently. Sounds pretty good here.

Stunning, breathtaking, gorgeous. It's so heartwarming to see that he still has this in him, and that the music continues to mean so much to him.

Just wondering if these songs bring back memories for him. I always thought Shelter was about Sara.

Maybe, but it's seemed quite universal to me at times.

As boring as it is, I'll take it over the up-singing or growl of the past decade. I think he's concentrating so much on trying to sing well these days that the songs lose something in the transition, but it's definitely been worse.

Fair enough. But Shelter is a complete bore too. The band is doing absolutely nothing. Tepid playing at best. Pick up the pace!

It's called singing... and not getting in the way of singing.

'Shelter' sounded crisp & fun. Slow, but fun.

'Girl' just needed some bubbles to complete the Lawrence Welk treatment.

Thanks for posting!

Of course it's singing. There's singing in every song. It's just so somber, dreary and hopeless sounding. That bow sounds awful.

There's not singing like that in all the songs he does. Not even in The Setlist #1. I like the way he sings these and the way the band steps back to let the voice unfold.

Well that's being very generous in my opinion. This stuff gives me the creeps.

I wouldn't quite say that 'nothin's happenin' here' or 'nothin' ever does.'

But, Sphere,...you were witness to some, or all, of this leg LIVE...and I can see what you mean to a certain extent.
The atmosphere seems thicker and there are molasses throughout.

Hopefully the band's getting paid well enough to keep them interested.

Most of the "new" alternate songs are the simplest, dumbest ones he has that the band can easily play from memory. Many of them are even interchangeable! Bring back the good ones. More good songs that are interesting and not just safe.
