Notes: An absolutely amazing recording for a Mini Disc source. The sound & (overall) professionalism Wim generates with his recordings is a stand-out among tapers. If you didn't know, he has taped a few historical & great sounding recordings including the Amsterdam '97 show (click here for details) This particular recording is not an exception as it captures a different side of Tool than we in the United States see-live. At this gig, they are playing a Festival, are playing during the evening, it is not dark outside. For the people in the United States: imagine seeing Tool in 2002 without being shrouded in darkness, their visual show, the protection of lights and to simply be (sort of) like another band on a bill for an Ozzfest date. I think you need to take factors like what the environment is of the show itself when examining a show. Interesting setlist backed with an equally interesting, dare I say, intense performance by the band. Very nice.
