I've seen them live three times, and Jake's killed it each time. I think there was something wrong with his voice or something when they filmed this.

to the baddies saying the vocals are not good, you get up on stage for 15 songs and see how well you fare.

and to the people saying the sound quality seems too good, this band pours insane amounts of money into their equipment. Their tech crew is also a legend in this time, and solid state makes a huge effort for live video.

Add that all ontop of the fact that they're really fucking good at their respective instruments.

man, say that shit all you want. 'you try getting up on stage/touring/blah blah every night, lets see how good you are etcc..' it's their JOB. if the guy can't play a full show with out his voice shitting out (im not only talking about ABR, any band), maybe HE is doing something wrong. maybe HE should practice more, or do whatever it takes to make his voice not sound like shit. it will pretty much always be the band's fault/lack of preparation if they don't sound good live.

it's simple. if you can't handle a big set, then don't play one. if you want to play a big set, practice it a shit load so you know you can do it well.

that being said, i think the instruments are pretty flawless.

Here's another clip of ABR in Tokyo. Jake's voice sounds much better here, which proves that he wasn't feeling good when they did the DVD shoot.

EDIT: I forgot the link. fail.

I thought Jake's voice sounded great! It really gave the performance a live feel, because the rest of the guys are all so good I feel like I may as well be listening to the CD hahah.

They are absolutely one of the most solid bands I have ever seen live. Every aspect of their performance was solid. Great video.

the problem is, yea, he's usually better live. although, i will say, when you see him live, you aren't hearing a crystal clear soundboard recording thats been cleaned up a billion times for dvd production, so we're not at all hearing what he actually sounds like live. this may be exactly how he sounds. screaming will often have that effect- its often better when its not cleaned up and when it fades in more to the rest of the sound.

if this band really wanted to put out a perfect dvd, they'd have a drummer cam, because he is far and away the best part of this band and plays more stiff than any other metal drummer i've seen, which is crazy considering how many fills he's essentially doing with his arms and not his wrists. i'd pay to just watch 1 cam of him the entire time

He sounds like crap on this entire CD which sucks because every single time I've seen them, they've been incredible.

Here is a video I shot when they played in Seattle a few years ago...sounds way better here to me.
