4.0 out of 5 stars Good Show for the Band, but not the best, November 26, 2008
This review is from: Road To Revolution Live At Milton Keynes (CD/DVD) (Audio CD)
This CD/DVD combo is actually better then "Live in Texas". Unforunately Live in Texas doesn't have the raw sound like this one. This combo actually shows Linkin Park's energy at their live shows. I know the sound isn't great, but that's what you get when you record live. It's not going to be perfect. People expect to much with sound quality since we've gotten spoiled with better technology. The filming of the band it self was good since you could feel the energy from the band. Unforunately I can't say that for the crowd (the crowd might have had a bad or something on those lines).

I know that Chester's vocals are off pitch on some of the songs, but try touring day after day and singing Crawling or Given Up. Broadway singers have an understudy in case their vocals are not up were it should be. But lead vocalists in bands like Linkin Park do not.

If someone is going to buy this don't expect:
A good recording since it is a LIVE SHOW. So the sound is not going to be up to standard.

Great vocals by Chester. Chester's vocals are still excellent but not what you expect from him. He is off pitch on some songs.

The live show is not completely. Three songs are hidden tracks at the end of the DVD.

Hey, with all due respect, you are suggesting we shouldn't expect good sound quality because it is a live recording?!?!? I can name, right off the bat, 5 outstanding live albums with great sound quality and mixing:

U2, Under a Blood Red Sky
Led Zeppelin, The Song Remains the Same and How the West Was Won
Grateful Dead, Without A Net
Ben Folds Live
Genesis, Three Sides Live

There are numerous others out there. I like this Linkin Park CD and bought it the first day it was released, but the mixing on here is horrible. I know there's a problem when I turn it loud on my stereo and I get significant distortion (especially from the bass). Sound production was lazy for this release, IMO.

By all respect to LP, the sound of LIVE IN TEXAS is one of the worst Live-CDs that I´ve ever heard, and I am a LP Fan! The sound mix is just terrible, dynamic less, "suffocated" in Stadium-Sound. That´s why I´m not sure to buy this new Live-CD ... Many reviewers seems to be the same opinion ...
