Haha, who would say that! I love these guys, although the performance wasn't all that great.
some of the myspace songs are a bit better but i just can't get into it. and the vocals in this video are really bad like someone doing karaoke as a joke haha.

I can see people wrote how the vocals are off-setting, and I agree, but I think it gives this band that uniqueness. Really good album, but this wasn't really that good of a performance.

I saw this band earlier this year at Central Park and it was one of the best performances I have ever seen. This video is definitely sub par. Don't let this fool you, they are quite stellar live.

i have a tendency to start watching live videos and then continue to listen while doing other things so i can't really comment on the actual performance but it sounded fine. i don't own the cd but i do have the reeling and from what i've seen/heard them do live the vocals sounded fine (and better than the recorded version imo, but this is based on the studio version of the reeling only). i'm not not really sure why everyone's saying it was a bad vocal performance. albeit it wasn't amazing and probably not their best, but i would by no means say it was bad

But...but...have you heard the record?!
Yes. I think it's pretty catchy, and the vocals work on a studio recording. That doesn't excuse them from the fact that they sound like shit live. It's a stupid decision on the vocalist's part.

it's weird seeing them on a big stage like this.
i feel as though they should be crammed together on a small stage in some smaller venue.

anyway, if i didn't already love this band; i wouldn't be sold on them based upon this showing.

I like this band and I thought Manners was super bomb.

Unfortunately they suck live. I saw them at Treasure Island, and man - the crowd was unanimous: not only were the vocals terrible, but they have no stage presence. Plus they have so many backing tracks going on, it's ridiculous. At one point, the click in the click track was playing through the speakers. It was embarrassing. But seriously the vocals on the CD are layered and layered and live it's just him, and it just does not sound good. It sounds like a drunk dude trying to hit the falsetto notes at a karaoke club.
