Notes: This second performance by Tool on the 2nd Leg of the US Tour represents more of an introspective, Reflective Disposition of the band.  The performance seems to embrace the Flood of Apocalyptic-Patience that is a characteristic of the now Sober Tool. Some may say that although Maynard's experiences with A Perfect Circle created a Schism in the band, the power of a Triad + 1 is enough to bestow all Grudges. Even those that are AEnimalistic by nature. Extremely tight performance that gives notion to the idea that Tool certainly is not about H.ate, negativity or the Parabolas of modern of life (if one were to speak in terms of a mathematical graph). Even the casual listen who may raise his or her First will say that Tool does not Stink. At least professionally, as a band, not personally. Lateral thinking may actually be a mantra of Tool? Perhaps. 
Notes: As for the recording, this is clear, crisp and dynamic. If this were the only high quality source for the performance then that would be it. However, the Schoeps source is definitely the best. This source has a live feel to it as it was recorded in front of the board. It is a fact, though, that this source deserves not only a spot in anyone's collection but also a spot on at least some form of CD rotation. Recommended for quality of recording & for performance.

Maynardism: Hopefully, your experience tonight was a positive one. We hope you will take that positive energy home with you & create more positive energy. Thank you"
