Don’t get me wrong, the fireworks itself were not that bad. But they weren’t spectacular… there has been better ones over the years…
The thing that let the whole thing down was the soundtrack.
For something that is advertised as fireworks to music (which is how I remember it being when it started 21 years ago) the music chosen was out of sync for one, and for another claimed to be going through the 21 years of skyfire.
Last time I checked Smoke on the Water was not in the last 21 years. They could have very easily have made a kick arse soundtrack to go over the last 21 years of music.
What did everyone else think?
