Notes: Real clear recording that is, without a doubt, an accurate representation/capture of what Tool can do as a band and what good microphones, a good position and a good DAT deck can deliver. There are lots of people who may try to get a live -sounding- recording such as this fine, fine piece of work but I am not sure how many come close. This is not a front-of-stack type of recording but has the, overall, 'live' feeling that so many collector's love to listen to. Hearing this show & also knowing the work of two very good Tool recorders who used SS-DSM6, DP (2002) & Steve (1993/1999), is almost enough to prompt me to purchase a pair of these microphones. But at the end, I have little faith in the crowds that tend to follow me to nearly every concert - you know, the people who scream & try to be social as the band is playing. People I, personally, found tend to stay away from the stacks in order to talk. In other words, this is a tight recording & is not uncommon by any stretch of the imagination but nonetheless should not be overlooked. The way MJK's voice seems to float over everything is simply worth noting, very tasty.
Maynardism: "I have some good news & I have some bad news. First, the bad news - the bad guys are winning. You can't tell me that none of you bought any Backstreet Boys albums. Here's the good news - it's not too late. Here's how it's going to start, we are going to take the non-conformist oath. So, repeat after me: "strive to be different, strive to be unique, question authority, think for yourself, never repeat things other people say."
