Actually, we have no problem with Mea Culpa at all. It's one of my favourites. We orginally put the song into the opening Contagion performance, but felt it slowed things down to much.... so we briefly put in in amongst the encore tracks instead. Somehow, at this point in the set, with Rob having been singing his heart our for two hours, it just didn't feel quite the right song to do. That's why it disappeared from the set. However, I'd like to see it back in there at some point. We'll see what we can do...  :)

We are already planning the '10th Anniversary' set list for September.... the problem with that is how to fit everything in!!  :-\

Now I have almost all the studio albums, I'm orientating which live album I should order first. Because 'Contagion' is my favorite album, I was thinking of 'Live & Life'. Is that a good choise? Thanx for your reactions!

That makes all clear ;). The only studio album I have to buy is 'Pride'. Then I want to have all the live eventually, doubt if I will do this before buying 'Contagium' and 'Contagious'.
