Live in Texas is the first live album by Linkin Park, released in a CD+DVD package on November 8, 2003.
Linkin Park was always one of those bands that I somehow liked, but never enough to buy their music or go to their concert. When this live album came out, I somehow was intrigued by the authentic live sound they were able to produce despite the image they portrayed in regard to electronic influences in their music. My perception of the band was that they would “electricute” – yes, that is an ‘i’ not an ’o’ – their live productions given their use of electronic music tools. The band definitely proved my wrong with this great live album. Furthermore, the DVD captured the live atmosphere of their gigs on August 2 & 3 in Texas very well and adds great visuals to the music.
This is a good option for all those metalheads who like good Nu-Metal – [Is that still the gerne description for this kind of music?] – without all the electronic over-production. It is also a good deal for the money with a DVD-length of 71 minutes and a CD-length of 41 minutes.
Check it out and let me know how you like it.
