Notes: Good recording and the performance, like most of 2001, was as professional as Tool is capable of. Sounds to me like the taper was or could have been in front of the board for this show. Cymbals are rather clear and there is a layer of crowd noise that is definitely audible - people yelling, talking, applauding... the works. Maynard's vocals are very clear and are much more evident than the other instruments. Not sure why this is. The cymbals do have a very crisp sound to them and, all in all, this is a very good MD capture. Although the setlist is not very exciting, it certainly sends the right message (for the time period). There is a little bit of an echo that is evident (if you listen closely) and although not excessive or terrible, it certainly is worth noting.
Notes: The following quote was lifted off of TDN for the concert review: Highlights were: - Maynard screaming for 1/2 minute during "The Grudge" - The end of 46+2: Adam plays this riff, his hands being the only part of his body that are moving, and with the end hit of the song he suddenly stops his all movements; it looked like if you pressed Pause on a VCR. Incredible. You had to see this. - the beginning of "Aenema" : Maynard's "Hey Hey Hey..."...Adam wanted to kick in with the guitar riff, but Maynard stopped him with raised finger, telling him to wait...the "Hey, Hey, Hey," went on forever. Incredible.... and it is. Only time this has happened? Perhaps. Take a listen to the MP3 sample.
Maynardism: "Good evening. We are, we have been & we will be Tool. Thank you for coming. You can drink that one, it's ok, I didn't pee in that one. I did pee in that one. I warned you"
