Notes - by: Taper: Please keep this off torrent sites and rarely traded. The show isn't the best but it is rare. If for some reason the bastard who was yelling and talking into my camera ever see's this, I hope you were having fun because if that happened outside of a concert I would have beaten your face to a pulp.
Notes - by: Galen: Disclaimer: I am quite biased to this video recording; I think it basically kicks serious ass. It has it's faults but it is still one of the rare instances where quality meets with intensity. The filmer perceives quite a few more issues with it than I do. Other collectors may have different perceptions of it as well. That said, please read on... The first performance of Tool since 2002, the debut of 3 new songs (prior to release date), a mixed crowd (hippies, punks, rave-kids, metal heads) & a video that is not only complete but of excellent quality. I do not say that lightly but I will repeat: this is a very nice capture of Tool. It would be extremely hard to top the footage contained on this video. Of course there are the obligatory security ducks but it is to the taper's credit (note: same taper as the most widely circulated 10/10/1999 video!) that pretty much each member of the band receives camera time - including stage shots, when applicable. In other words, this is not how many videos tend to be; strictly focused on Maynard. The audio is, as jaded as I am in regards to audio from videos, quite good. In fact, one could argue it is of better quality than at least a couple of the audio sources. Quite nice. The taper apparently has quite an understanding of his recorder. Maybe some other filmers could take a lesson from this particular taper? The DVD is also authored with a nice picture from the performance & chapter selections. All in all, this is definitely worth the time/investment to add to your collection. This video gives validation to the the hobby of watching/listening to live performances of Tool in order to gain a more in-depth understandings of the music, lyrics & live performances --- at least that is why I do what it is I do for this hobby.

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.'

'Had enough? Good. Because we've come here to scissor, paper, rock you. I wrote that. Single.'
