Notes - by: Taper: Tool live at the Hummingbird Centre, Toronto May 16th, 2006. This show was great, it could have been a bit longer but I realize the band is just doing a warm up tour right now before the real show begins. My 4th time seeing this fantastic band and every time it gets better and better. This show was recorded on the floors, left side (if looking at the stage), row W seat 5. Security didn't seem to be to tight as I know of at least 4 sources of this show, 1 has already been shared, this one, and the other 2 don't know if they're sharing their versions or not yet. This is a really good recording. I prefer it myself but I'm probably biased, its not as "tinny" as the other source. I'm not saying the other source is bad, not by any means, its quite good in fact, better than most CSB recordings I've heard. To each there own though. Anyone who wants to do a matrix is quite welcome to do so if they'd like.
Notes - by: Galen: This source, to my ears, has the most crowd noise of the three sources I've heard thus far. However, the high frequency sound + MJK vocals are very, very clear. That said, this is certainly worth the time, energy & enjoyment to check out. Tool's performance, although average for this era, is captured in crystal-clear detail by the taper - who did a great job, by the way. All in all, is this the best source for this performance? That is up to your own audio preference. Is this a great recording? Hell yes.

"We had a new album come out. Apparently it went platinum in Canada. And I'd just like to say what the fuck dudes - what about triple platinum - buy it again. I'm trying to put a new wing on the winery - help me out; I said, I love Canada."
