As we all know, the band's soul died with Roi. Shame Roi brought Ross onto the train. What was he thinking? Ross is the kid asking to pull the whistle all the time.

I'm with you on this. Crush is easily his best song. He sounds pretty great when he isn't trying to do too much. Proudest Monkey was a delight in ATL as well, he really excels on the muted trumpet. The only thing that I was noticeably offended by from the horn section was their playing in OSW. That song will never be the same without Roi.

Just posted the same thing in another thread about OSW. And I also agree his muted trumpet work is good. Heís good on proudest and spaceman too. Crush is fine, though I think itís dragging on a few minutes too long and could be tightened up.

Also, his bit on Warehouse annoys me. Like the climax is supposed to be 'thats our blood down there' not him squealing in the highest register he can. Like he totally takes the dynamics out of the tune and many others.
Boom.
