Billy Talent Scandalous Travellers


Why would a band with only one major release bother to release a tour documentary? A tour documentary that, it is worth noting, is not even a full hour in length. Succeeding in making an already dull band look like complete douche bags, Scandalous Travellers is anything by scandalous. The band mope around and talk about their music, in between shots of them playing live and, interesting enough, sounding terrible. While some of their studio material can be interesting, it seems that Billy saves all their talents for recording and leave none for their live shows, where they sound like one of those painful opening bands that make everyone wonder how they ended up on the bill. Plus: stills, bios, live concert footage, acoustic performances. (Atlantic)
