[Zombies] (Live) And Direct Details

I thought Not Breathing was great... until after like 10 minutes of heavily 
layered sonic assault with no real musical "break" in the mix.  I don't mean 
like a complete stop/silence was needed.  But as far as composition goes, 
cut some texture down or change the rhythmic phrasing for a bit to give the 
listeners a chance to rest, or give them more than a teaspoon of variation 
to digest for a minute.  Otherwise it just loses it's drive and gets 
monotonous and a little annoying.

Maybe that's how they chose their name.  They don't give you a chance to 
take a breath during the pieces ;)

having seen the l.a. show and the chicago show, it was interesting that
the set lists were different at both. overall the selections were pretty
close to the same, but the order different.

i might be the only one, but not breathing was very underwhelming, both
times. i actually heard the main guy giving jack a bit of a sarcastic poke
before the chicago show during soundcheck asking him if he was going to be
doing any "rapcore" tonight. i had to roll my eyes at that.
