Notes: I, personally, really like this recording. I think it is smooth. I think it is intense. I think it is balanced. More importantly, I think it rocks. This is one of those shows you can toss in your vehicle & listen to 100% & think "wow that was a nice show". Apparently not everyone thinks this is as some of the issues folks seem to have are in relation to: very low bass frequencies, not being totally 'bright' on the high end & an overall lack-luster capture. Everyone is entitled to opinions of course. Do not get me wrong, this is not a perfect recording in relation to crowd noise (there are some instances of crowd chatter) but those issues are not overpowering. This is a recording that may have some warts but that does not mean that it is still better sounding than many recordings of performances around. All in all, definitely worth the time to listen, burn to CD & enjoy. I wonder if anyone can decipher what MJK says as he walks on stage? As a final note, take a quick listen to the intro music -er, talking- as it is the same tape that Tool used back in the mid 1990's as they came on stage. Rather interesting!

Maynardism: "See you in February."
