Notes: Superb recording, really, probably one of the best sounding recordings from this part of the 2001 World Tour. Crowd noise is kept at a minimum although a couple voices may occasionally be heard. The taper most likely stood quite close to the stack as the instruments are almost disturbingly clear. The bass is just great - can hear little nuances which are not in other recordings. The performance itself is quite, hmm, like a rock-show than a Tool show. It seems like Tool is out this night to blow the audience's mind. Quality, clarity, clearness = an enjoyable listen for the fan. Highly recommended recording.
