Linea 77 - _Too Much Happiness... Makes Kids Paranoid_
(Earache, 2000)
by: Paul Schwarz (6 out of 10)
After Crackdown -- Italy's answer to Biohazard -- in 1998, we now have Linea 77 -- Italy's answer to Korn --, who are having their debut of last year re-released for the European market via the Earache label. Linea 77 -appear- to have created a not inconsiderable stir in their home country's live scene with the vitriolic baggy-pants metal blend showcased over the thirty-odd minutes of _TMHMKP_. However, they have quite simply delivered nothing more than a debut which displays ample competence at condensing various elements from names such as Korn, Deftones or Limp Bizkit down into aggressive three minute soundbites. _TMHMKP_ has nothing, musically speaking, which is likely to enthral even a person only moderately acquainted with the ways of the baggy-pants metal crowd; it provides a tangible backing to Linea 77's live performances, but it provides little to nothing else.
