Notes: Great, I mean great recording. Levels are just right & the crowd is so low its hard to hear that they are even really there at all. Which is nice. Standard show for Tool, standard setlist but still a good show, performance wise. Nothing really totally different but this does stand proof that no matter where Tool goes, they can put on one hell of a solid show. Also, it seems as though the taper stood very close to the speaker...crystal clear. With some recordings, the bass can flood the recording & make it very thick - like maple syrup. Not here. You get what you pay for with the equipment you use, it seems. One of the better 2002 recordings. Setlist is quite basic and standard as is the overall performance but I think that this recording makes even something that may, at times, be almost mundane be instead superb. That says something, I think. Some of the more adept collector's will notice that there is a slightly different sound on disc two. Why? The AUD DAT had an issue and that section of the show was spliced in it's stead. All copies have this commonality. Fact is, a 2G DAT recording I have of this show has the same issue. That really does not make sense - it must be that someone took this from CD or potentially WAV > DAT. Taking a guess as I trust the person I attained the DAT from. Was unable to acquire a DAT Clone from the taper, unfortunately. Would be interesting to solve this mystery.
