No, they're fantastic, but they're touring as a four-piece right now. They lost one of their guitarists about six weeks ago and haven't found a replacement, so the songs sound a little emptier live if you're listening closely. I still thought they fucking killed at the Knitting Factory, though. Jeremy has insane stage presence.
Ha its all subjective really. Most people consider putting on an insanely energetic show being a "great" live band. I consider putting on a great show, but , also concentrating on sounding just as good as the album. To me, thats what separates the men from the boys. That singer is below sub-par live. Period.
