Richard B. Simon of Launch.com was at the opening tour stop by Echobrain at the Mystic Theatre in Petaluma, California. Simon said of Jason Newsted on his first live gig since leaving Metallica: “Newsted prowled the stage throughout the show, locking horns with each player, his body moving — even during quieter parts — as if he were still thrashing it out on the arena stage. He enjoyed the hell out of all the music, but he still seemed most at home when the band was hard crunching. Indeed, Echobrain sound like a young, hungry band, with fresh-sounding tunes whose often crisp arrangements just happen to be informed by a guy who knows how to get it across in a football stadium.”
