Notes: I remember having a few email correspondences with the taper of this show. He explained that he felt the bass was a bit too prevalent & that, overall, the result of his product was less than he anticipated. However, upon listening to this in completion; I think acted, as many tapers do, as their own worse critic. The levels are balanced, the band was captured as they sounded out of the stacks, the crowd is not terrible &, if nothing else, this recording gives ample rationale for Tool to re-examine their negative stance on tapers. The product is an ambient, lively & warm recording that captures Tool's first performance in 4 years to a "t" (for "Tool" of course). It is difficult for me to discuss the performance anymore than I have here & in other analysis of recordings; good but rusty for those that want the 'Cliff Notes' version? As for trades, if you are interested in this recording, feel free & contact the taper via the information listed above.

The Pot

'Welcome to our first show in many years. We want to keep it down a notch, make it all small and intimate, invite a few friends. Welcome. But you, dude, need to put your fucking clothes back on, you're bumming me out. Got lost on the way to Burning Man.'

Forty-Six & 2

'New album comes out tomorrow at midnight. I know you fuckers all downloaded already. Do me a favor, I'm trying to buy... this gold nugget shaped like a piece of popcorn for a ring. So, I need you to buy a bunch of records so I can afford that. Big ol' gold nugget. Like 4 of them. Then when I hit you in the face for taking my photo it will look like somebody had hit with a bowl of popcorn. Help me out will ya? I'm destitute.'
