    Do you?

    Anyway, i want Final Masquerade or Until It's Gone. It's such a shame that they forgot THP in their setlists...

    I don't see any reason for them to play that song. Not saying it is a bad song, but why would they play it?

    Concerning the topic: I think that bands (not just LP, although they especially) should customize their setlists to festivals. I mean going to a Metal Festival and playing their ballads mostly, doesn't make sense IMO. And I mean..bands tend to have weird setlists at festivals (I have experienced that first hand) but if you really enjoy a band you shouldn't be bothered by it, cause more often than not you'll see more than that festival show so you'll hear the other songs sooner or later anyway. Heck I've seen bands that played literally one song of their (then) brand new album at a festival show just because they had so many "hits" the festival crowd might ask for, despite the fact that during headline shows they played maybe 4 minimum from the new album.

    So apparently there was no booing(?). An LPL user was there and there was not one person that booed during LPs set..so I am..confused to say the least.
    Thanks for that insightful post.

    Those songs don't fit with what they're promoting

    Does that matter?

    My biggest complaint about the setlist is lack of energy. The Carnivores setlist was almost PERFECT (Besides the omission of BTH and playing Castle of Dance instead of the better Castle of Glass). They also balanced high energy and heavy songs with softer songs perfectly. They could easily do it again.I actually like OML so them playing songs from it doesn't bother me but taking out songs like Given Up and Rebellion have drastically decreased the quality of the set. And just play Crawling normally for crying out loud.

    Am I the only one who feels that they don't have to always play high energy sings? Yeah sure maybe for festivals, but for their own shows, they can play what they want, especially when its for the promotion of a new album.

    Yes, they can play whatever they want but I think a mix of energy and slow songs is the best way to do it and the band has shown they can do that. A rock show is usually better when you can rock out.

    Ultimately yes. When you're promoting a certain product, you should stand by what you are trying to get people to enjoy. If the album is by definition a pop album, you wouldn't want a bunch of heavy material drowning out the new songs that are considerably softer and not guitar driven. Just my thoughts on the situation.

    Hmmm, good to hear your opinion on the subject.

    I will have to disagree though. Linkin Park is rock band who has a lot of high energy songs. I think its toally acceptable to mix softer songs with heavy songs if you do it right. A Day to Remember does that well and Linkin Park has done it well before. Plenty of acts do it well and I don't see the issue when there are ways to make it work.

    It's mostly the middle of the setlist that's the problem. Too many soft/slow songs together.

    The whole set is soft songs.

    The only song with "energy" is Faint

    What's confusing is that they made two albums(LT and THP) to bring more energy to their shows and never played more than 4 songs from it. They never performed the softer stuff from LT like Powerless or Roads Untraveled. They are performing one song from THP currently. But from OML (their softest record to date), they are playing 6 songs of it.

    I don't hate OML. Please don't jump on me
