first off i have to say, this is my 3rd time seeing them, and of course they kill it harder and harder each time that I see them(they switch up their tracks nicely). but the crowd sucked ass and it translated to the clan as what i knew what was going to happen......not everybody (like myself) was there to see great hip hop performances such as the gods EPMD & Pharoahe Monch but merely just to see Rage Against the Machine. they started to play tracks from Liquid Swords and cut it short and said "they ain't ready for that" basically stating the facts that the crowd wasn't with it for their set. shit, i thought GZA wasn't even there and then came out of nowhere half way through, and he couldn't get the crowd bumpin. I mean the crowd had their moments, but for most wu-tang concerts, usually you dont need the Clan to get everybody to make noise. dont get me wrong RATM brought the house down and i definatly enjoyed their performance. but the day seemed kinda tainted when Method Man said we just got back from germany and they were goin bananas and hinted that their crowd aka their home crowd wasn't nearly as live as fans across sea's. like i said, this is my 3rd time seeing them, and i've seen wu-tang (and solo members) in a venue not even a 1/3 of the size of rock the bells and I thought the floor was gonna cave in and each time walked out with little to no voice left. rock the bells was definalty a good time but next time, dont throw rage against the machine into the mix with a line up like that. Sure, RATM definatly represents an element of hip hop but nothing like how public enemy, cypress hill or blackstar do. they need to have another rock the bells or another festival like this and just keep it pure hip-hop and get everybody to show. like literally everybody from Hit Sqaud to Canibus.
