The problem with all these things like barrier walks, dances, props etc. is that they're mostly there as props meant to distract people from the fact that the songs are shite.

Barrier walks are great... for the handful of people on the barrier. For the rest of us, it's long minutes where the person singing the song isn't visible.
It's not very engaging, as a whole.

@Jobby, I didn't see the need to constantly be doing something on stage, btw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hXSyZcLX0Q (Go in like 40-50 seconds or so.)
Watching Matt literally stare at his shoes for minutes on end is PAINFUL live. Awkward as fuck, no energy or charisma whatsoever.
Then he slaps a guitar on, and although he's basically acting the same, it feels normal.
This is why he shouldn't be so eager to drop that guitar... not some notion that they need to be a "rock" band or anything. He needs to figure out how to be entertaining/engaging to pull this off.

I always enjoyed watching it on pro-shots or on the screens at shows even before I was eventually involved in one. Just find it a refreshing moment of breaking through the crowd/band disconnect created by some of these mad productions.

With your example, I see what you mean but, to me, that is still Matt trying to do something - looking moody and dramatic by hunching toward the floor then occasionally popping up for the sharp bends. He’s trying to do something that he thinks fits the song and might be crowd-engaging but, like you say, he’s just not v good at it ‘cos that charisma and body movement doesn’t come naturally to him. I think him not playing instruments in any future songs can still work though, if he just stays by the mic stand and sings. It’s when he disconnects and totally frees up his movement that he looks like he doesn’t know what to do with himself imo, leading to all these awkward moments.

If you take the first half of something like TAB or Blackout back in the day (again, before he started taking the mic away from the stand) and just imagine there’s no guitar hanging around his waist, it’s still just as engaging of a performance for me. It can work, he just needs to keep it simple.

Barrier walks are great. Those people who waited for 10+ hours should get something a bit special

The definition of uncool. Good thing he can sing and play guitar.

Too bad he's losing his voice and decided the latter isn't cool anymore.

But yeah, that's not really relevant to the new album, I'll stop.
Good luck arguing that.
