The Steve Plunkett-less Autograph took the final Firefest by storm, playing a stunning set. Alas, three years down the line, this weak comeback set adds little to the band’s legacy. You Are Us We Are You and Meet Me Halfway rank among a handful of worthy moments on the album, but the cod hair metal of its title track is simply embarrassing.
