A great line from the NY Press article: “Was it simply the audience not knowing these new songs off Scream? No. The problem is they have no energy, on record or live. They suck. I did not believe a word of what Cornell sang for any of the eight new songs he played last night.” Check inside for more of the review and videos from the show
