I love when so called show reviewers trash every other band on tour, for the sake for the sake of trashing them, and make it completely obvious that they know very little about music or the bands they are covering.

East Coast emo behemoths My Chemical Romance and Taking Back Sunday played second-fiddle to Linkin Park. Both had highly predictable stage shows that won the crowd over but had me yawning.

Seriously, if the crowd is won over it's probably a good show. I hate pretentious prick reviewers that just put scene bands down to maintain an elitist position. After the Saturday of Bamboozle, when like 30,000 people stuck around to see MCR (the largest crowd for one set I've ever seen) there's no way you can call them a snore live. You couldn't even hear Gerard due to the crowd's singing, and from the few songs I watched it was very entertaining. And TBS will always be one of my favorite live bands, tho it's been some time since I've seen them live.

Agreed. I found this bit of dribble to be particularly irritating:

"better than the Muse-y dark-pop of Placebo, but neither lived up to the buzz both bands have generated lately in alt-rock circles."

Yes, let's say Placebo derived a sound from a band that formed three years after Placebo's beginnings.

How can the reveiwer praise Linkin Park then go on to insult every other band?


"Newport Beach's Saosin and Phoenix's the Bled, were the biggest draws, but the latter is still pumping out the same ol' machine-gun rattle while Saosin is still running on fumes from its last record."

You might want to keep it that way.

I saw them a few times in support of WYWTB (which I actually like). Have they gotten worse with the release of Louder Now?

Maybe it is just me, but I keep scratching my head as to why everyone in the media is comparing the "new" Linkin Park to "early U2." If it is, in fact, like that, than why have I yet been able to get all the way thru Minutes to Midnight? I am not a HUGE fan of the band, but I like what they have done in the past, but this album has just left me with something to be desired every time I listen to it. And yet the mainstream media is ready to lump LP together with the top of the rock mountain (no pun intended) with Foo Fighters, RHCP, and Green Day. I just don't see it that at all, LP is not even close to that yet.

Yes. Fred is the only thing about their live show that's actually worth seeing.

Interesting. I thought their live show was supposed to make the Louder Now songs even better. Fred is the man though.

I just came back from the Mountain View stop last night, and it was amazing. I didn't know most of the bands on the Revolution stage (the smaller, non-main stage), but got into most of them right away. A tip for those who go: The show starts at around 12:00 (noon), but Linkin Park will end about 11:00 PM.

I wouldn't suggest going to a Projekt Revolution show for just one band. Especially considering the only band with decent set time on the second stage is Mindless Self Indulgence with a 50 minute set. The Bled will only play for 25-30 minutes.
