Notes: This is a very nice capture of Tool performing at the peak of their 2001 era. I think. The sound is clear and is well balanced but is not as amazing as one would think for the equipment used. All in all though, a very nice recording. Although the taper seems to be close to the speakers, this is the clearest, in my opinion, of the west coast tour even though the crowd can be rather loud & annoying. MJK's vocals are very clear & the other instruments compliment each other rather nicely. I am sure that people will disagree with me and they are free to. The setlist is a very basic one for this time period as is the performance - straight, forward and narrow. But, what else could one expect or want more of? My comment definitely lays with the shrieking girls --> please, please, please do not do that again! One more thing, this taper seemed to be rather close to the SPSC>D100 taper as some of the screams are the same... but, they are different recordings.
Maynardism: "I'm assuming, of course, that you were wise enough to show up early for King Crimson. Those of you that didn't should have to pay twice."
