I saw the boys last night in Pittsburgh, and it was great seeing all of the Iconoclast stuff live. However, I'd be lying if I said that their choice of The Odyssey as the encore didn't leave me disappointed. Why? Well they've been pushing the song FOREVER now. This is my 3rd time seeing the band, and the 2nd time I've seen them place the Odyssey as the encore. The other time was over 5 years ago. I honestly think it's time for them either to only play part of it or to eliminate it from the set completely. To dedicate time to it means that they're eliminating 25 minutes that could be spent on deep cuts, forgotten classics, etc. I *really* wish I'd seen them in '08, when the show I would have gone to (Cleveland) got Egypt, Masquerade, and part of TDWoT. Ever since Paradise lost came out, up until Iconoclast, the set list, though, has appeared to be at least half some form of Paradise Lost, The Odyssey, and then some combo of Of Sins and Shadows/Sea of Lies/Smoke and Mirrors. That's not cool, IMO. Will they run the risk now of simply repeating the cycle with Iconoclast in place of PL? Is there a reason the band never wants to dig into their history? So much good stuff to choose from. Think of how much rare stuff we could get were The Odyssey to be removed. I think that by always playing it, they run the potential of diminishing its legacy. It really should become a special attraction number. Don't get me wrong; I think it's a great song, and after I loosened up a bit last night I got into the groove of it. But I still kept thinking back to my overall viewpoint, that bands need to give the die hards who come to shows something special. I feel like The Odyssey no longer satisfies that need, and that energy could be better focused on other stuff (like ANYTHING from V!!!). What does everyone else think?
