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
