Notes: There are various DVD>CD rips of this out there. Sound is a little brick-walled; loud crowd & crunchy bass, this is most common in the VHS>DVD rips. The master>DVD DVD in circulation is actually very good for sound. Amazing what a little generational loss can do. DVD is a little dark; looks like it was transferred over to DVD from a 2nd or 3rd Gen VHS. In fact, this does not look nor resemble a VHS>DVD transfer at all. Super clean. However, there is a blue screen when the show is over which one could argue would mean that this was in actuality a VHS > DVD transfer but... I do not know for certain. Anyway... there are lots of shots of Danny, lots. About as much as often as MJK > for those that know what I am saying, there is something to be said about this fact. Slight white-spots or graininess. Probably, best left for collectors. Tool doesn't seem to be all that inspired either. I'm sure that someone who was at the show would love to disagree with me but I cannot help but feel how I do. The filming is average, the taper has done better work but at least this was filmed. There are some fairly good close-ups and focusing of the band members & a few real nice stage-shots but overall it sort of lacks interest I suppose.

Maynardism: "Good evening."
