I've seen a Mono gig twice in my life. Twice I left the venue before they ended. (and it never happened to me with any other band in my life).

Hey I’m not offended. That all sounds fair enough to me, even though I disagree. It’s hard not to be just plain fine with post-rock, but there’s still some good stuff out there. For me, I guess Mono is like comfort food at this point.
Nothing they’ve done compares to, say, “Millions Now Living...”
