Notes: All in all, a pretty nice capture of Tool with the ever-so-interesting 2 camera mix angles. Unfortunately, this was version was put onto VHS & then to DVD thus there are hints of VHS 'grain' that is a trademark of these transfers. Also, there is a little bar of color at the bottom of the screen - common in VHS > DVD (or just VHS) copies of shows. The sound is pretty nice, overall. The microphones do have their limitations but is decent for a video source. The mix between the 2 camera angles was done rather nice as there are some real smooth fade ins/outs between them. Close-ups are a little lacking but this is due to the filmers being a good distance away; the same could be said about the audio as well. Now, is there a better source of this exact show somewhere out there w/o the added Gen from the VHS? I think so. one of the taper's contacted me once & offered this show to me for $50 - I obviously said no way; that is a lot for an AUD of Tool, no? As for the CD transfer, decent sound. Slightly muffled sound but relatively clear. There are a couple of slight audio drop-outs. I would say they would be mini-drops. Not terribly bad but not all that charming, either. This part of the tour, I am pretty sure that the band wanted nothing other than to go home, relax & watch some porn. As such, I think this performance seems quite a bit un-inspired, rehearsed and standard. Like, Tool was giving it all they had to give at this point of the tour.
