Of course he yells
To those that are annoyed by Ben ( the guy yelling at the crowd) and his part I. The band throughout the album, I would like to clarify a few things. First off he's the band's MC he is SUPPOSED to be yelling. Secondly, for those that have complained you clearly have not been to any of their live shows. When your actually there you realise how essential he is to the whole experience. He gets the crowed pumped up even more than they already are and adds to the mind blowing mood at every concert. So he is not yelling idiotically, he's just doing his job and what he loves doing if you don't like it don't complain and certainly don't call him an idiot for he's far more successful than practically all of us. Without Ben there would be no Pendulum Live.
A Great Album ruined by one man.
Plain and simple, pendulum is a great band and so is the selection of songs in this album, however it was ruined by the man yelling at the audience during the tracks. I kept thinking while listening "when will he shut up". Other wise it would have been a great live album by them. Hopefully if they tour in the US they will leave Mr. Annoying at home.

This was before they realized that pendulum is not a rock band it is an electric drum and bass band. So their concerts have been more electric and clubbie(something you can "rave" to) and less rock n rollie PRESENT-DAY PENDULUM #1 ( Someone please catch my reference)
I love Pendulum, but...
By Eric Hammerhead
I really like this band, but Ben Mount (the man shouting commands at the crowd and yelling idiodically during the songs) seriously ruined every song in this album. He contributed nothing decent towards the tracks themselves and does not appear to have any talent related to music except for ruining it.
I would have rated 5 stars if it wasn't for the unecessary presence of his voice in the recordings, and better yet, in the actual band.
This isn't really drum and bass anymore, check out their first commercial album "Hold Your Colour."
I have been a fan of Pendulum since I first heard them on BOOMBOX (sirius #34) and I have gotten everything since and this album will not let hyou down!
