I think overall their best days are behind them, but Edith is a good replacement for the "best of" set that they've been playing for the past year or so. I saw them twice last year and although I wasn't blown away, it was still fun hearing all their old tracks delivered with a good amount of energy and decent vocals on par with Alice. Me - Yeah, that makes it 3 for 3 on Crystal Castles sucking. Friend - YOU TWO ARE THE WORST FOR BRINING ME HERE! The drums were not in time with the rest of the music and you could not hear the vocals for most of the time. Me - No, this is Crystal Castles Friend - I thought this was some band practicing in their garage, this is fucking garbage.
Edith is slightly less unpredictable and isn't trying to be shocking or over the top. I remember some of Alice's performances in the past were inconsistent and sloppy. It's a shame that they only play 2 songs off that first album. It's a shame that they only play 2 songs off that first album.
