Mini Disc --- Core Sound Binaurals > Sharp MT-877
MP3 Sample: Right click & save

Notes: Really nice recording. Clear, low crowd noise, relative-professional feel to it & enjoyable to listen. It is very hard to mess up a recording with Core Sound mics so it sounds really nice because of that. Like any Tool show there are a few very intelligent people shouting & screaming 'Tooool' or 'whooooooah' but, hey, it is a concert. The band seems to be 'on' tonight as well...very sharp & a bit more energy in the performance than usual. Maynard's voice is quite good as well...before he started having some issues. There does seem to be an almost brickwall or 'peak' when the sound gets very intense. However, they do a version of Opiate which is not to be missed. This is one of  the shows where fundamentalist protestors picketed in front of the show with signs saying: "stop sinning, repent, serve Jesus" & "Jesus, the only one that died for your sins and saves from hell". Please, note the excellent grammar skills of these Christians. Text taken verbatim. Damn that is funny. and to think, these people, under the Bush "W" administration are in control / are leading America. Now, you may wonder what MJK is wearing at this performance? Beats me... spooky stuff.

Maynardism: "Not really sure how many of you were converted on the way in... but, thought we would share our thoughts. In the beginning was the word & the word was love...which is unconditional, infinite & without judgment. Rest assured, our hearts are in the best place; we want the best for everyone. Infinite, unconditional, without judgment." <into Opiate>
