  • The WHO Superbowl halftime show: Overcompressed?

    Not sure if it was the sound of the crummy speakers on my TV, but The Who sounded extremely overcomressed to me. Anyone else with better speakers see/hear this?

    Honestly, I didn`t care for it at all and that was not The Who. Yeah, it was half of the group but still... also, I`m tired of the Super Bowl turning to these "classics" for their half time shows. Seriously, The Who?

    Why not use that forum to promote some more up and coming artists or at least bands who have some sort of following: The Killers, Daughtry, Ashanti. etc...

      No matter who it is we always seem to bash the halftime show here on this forum. It wasn't great, and the Who would not have been my choice. But Pete Townsends vocals and guitar were defintely live.

        The game was great.... I ignored the half-time show as I usually do. It is mere filler for a wonderful event and this year did not disappoint!

          JoTown, I actually enjoyed Tom Petty last year and U2 back in 2002. Aside from that, I can`t remember any others really standing out as exceptional. The game was good. Glad the Saints won. New Orleans really needed it.

            Blech....Thought it sounded terrible, and the performance was terrible. Even at the top of their game, I don't think the Who sounded all that good, but, not a big fan..I like Petes' solo stuff much better.

            I have always wondered why KISS have never been on at half time...that is right up their alley....big explosions, hoopla, etc.
            Good deals with - Yarbicus, CBH5150, BozzofAngels, Alvin Wilson, Harris Quinn

            Oh, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.

              I thought it was cool but my pizza was coming out of the oven so I had to keep coming in and out of the living room. I listened on hi fi speakers and can't really say it sounded over compressed, certainly nothing like my radio. I just thought Townsend's vocals sounded like his voice was shot. He used to sing high harmony to Daltry all the time and was taking the low note route a lot. Guitaring was good from what I heard.

              And hey; 'Go Saints!'

                the NFL can't afford them?

                  Why do they tend to book those very....ahem....."august" groups?

                    most classic associated to the fan base of the iconic game.The Super Bowl is a classic Institution now, almost a holiday. Should they put Taylor Swift on next year? Maybe middle aged are the watchers? I don't know...

                        Well ever since Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" the NFL has been very leery of using the younger acts (not that she was really that young). Since that incident they have definitely moved towards safer "grown up" kinds of bands whose boobs are not likely to pop out of their costumes.

                          You would think that Pete could afford to buy a shirt with all its buttons though.

                          I can't judge the sound since I had to listen through TV speakers and I forgot to set my PVR to record it before I left for the party. It would have been interesting to listen though my JBL 4430's. As for the "show" I thought they did good. Good lights. Good stage. Not bad performance. I still think that the Prince half time show would be hard to beat and he played in the rain (not saying that because he's a former customer). In his case, it could be that the rain was something that actually enhanced the performance though.

                            Marilyn Manson would fit the bill.

                            What is Superbowl? Some oversized porcelain tupperware party?

                              Actually, you know what would be refreshing?... how about a Super Bowl without all the hoppla? You know? No big name acts, just a regular game!

                              btw- most of the commercials were really awful, bordering on stupidity. Those Go Daddy commercials were trying to get all hot and heavy but just couldn`t do it. I thought the best ones were the Doritos and the Megan Fox commercial and the Bud Light. Aside from that, argh...
