LINKIN PARK - Live In Texas

Linkin Park has managed to maintain their midway appeal by still getting the girls to sing along as well as the hardcore lads getting into the chunky riffs - not to mention the Hip-Hop flavours. With this album they disprove the doubts of many who may have felt that the band is pretty much a studio effort.
They replicate the recordings from their two albums on stage with an effortless accuracy, from One Step Closer, Runaway and Crawling to By Myself, In the End, Faint and Numb. Sometimes they may get a little soppy and self-deprecating, but it's not long before they back it up with some loaded Metal impact.
To add to the dozen energetic near-flawless (and angst filled) live tracks on this disc, you're treated to a DVD with their entire performance recorded at this Texas stadium show (which also featured
Deftones, Limp Bizkit and Metallica).
