The voice of music
 
Honestly, I've listened to tons of bands sound so awesome on CD, then find out they have no talent when I hear their live stuff.

Staind and Coldplay are pretty much the only exception. I've listened to their live stuff and their albums and find none or very little difference in the vocals.

So, what other artists can you find that can pull this off? Strive to sound the same live as they do on CD?

Why is that a talent?

Go listen to Modest Mouse. They sound exactly the same live as they do on their CD. Exactly.

Failing that, try DMB out.

GODDAMMIT! <img src=smilies/cwm27.gif>

I second most of the bands on your list, especially Mars Volta. I'd also like to add Radiohead because they truly are an amazing live act.

You assume I like Coldplay because I mentioned them in my previous post.

I wish I was into Radiohead. Never had the chance to listen to their songs. I should try an album. Do they have a greatest hits/live CD ?

It's obviously bad if a band can't replicate their studio sound on a live set. There's a difference, though, between being a studio band (that is, needing a studio to sound good) and mixing things up on a stage.

I always liked the Smashing Pumpkins' live material for the latter reason. They might play a song faster than usual, change the solo a bit, add other solos or add other verses, change lyrics around, or mix two or three songs together into one big jam.

I think I'd be upset if I saw a band play exactly like they do on an album. I could just turn my speakers up really loud and get the same effect. I don't go to concerts expecting for the band to prove their playing abilities, I want to see what they do in a live environment. I want something different and, ultimately, more natural sounding than a studio album.

Oh, and it isn't gay to enjoy Coldplay's music. Sure, they're way overrated, but there's much worse stuff out there. Just don't go around spouting how innovative they are or anything like that.

Yes. The little dances/seizures that Thom does on stage are priceless.
