Notes: Wow all I can really say is the scream on Opiate is enough to make your hair stand on end. Hard to believe this is just a simple CSB>MD recording but, ah, those were the days. Think what you will, those CSB>MD recordings are capable of producing some wonderful results. That is for damn sure. Tool, at this point, of the tour are not merely polished, they are spot-on. Mixed up the sets a bit, extended stuff & seemed to be having a great time. MJK's vocals, equally, are hot during this performance. As of 08/2007 this is the only source for this performance to be available in any capacity. Not sure why, there was a video from a filmer of this show but that unfortunately did not materialize. So, we have this. Surprisingly, this should not sound as good as it does. I do not say that lightly. Definitely a recording that stands up, even years later. Nice work to the taper.
