Notes: Good sounding gig but the bass brick-walls a bit when the bass 'punches'. I think the taper was standing really close to the stack & that caused the sensations; I've had it happen before as well. For some reason, many CSB>MD recordings using Sony are just fine, there seem to be only a few recording sources that get slightly distorted. I think maybe this taper was running his CSBs in through the microphone slot (having adjusted the input volume to a lower level before the show). This is on the borderline for being primarily for collector's since most recordings do not distort. Not terrible though. On a positive note, the crowd is very, very quiet. That aspect aside, the performance is in top-form. It's interesting to hear how Tool interacts with audiences from other countries.
Maynardism: "Thank you, very much. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank somebody for putting up with us; we've been touring through Europe with a band called Cortizone & we'd like to give them a special thanks. They've been very, very, very, very tolerant of our 'tom-foolery'. We'd like to thank them. Say thank you Cortizone -- ok, now in English. Just kidding."
