Notes: In comparison with other recordings from this era of Tool, the audio quality is lacking in this source. There is a lot of crowd noise, phasing (movement), a 'dumpy' low-end & a high-frequency that, unfortunately, you can hear the compression (of the MD) or the SPL threshold of the microphones simply cannot handle. Now, if this was a recording from, say 1992-1995 then this would be pretty good. However, these days, mediocre equipment just does not cut-it. If you can get over the quasi-OCD & negative vibe I relate in regards to this source then you may find that this is exceptionally enjoyable & will never, ever leave your CD player. However, the vocals seem to be almost 'behind' you, the bass-thump that sounds like a 'wave' as it coats your ears to the very high guitar-part; I doubt this will get a ton of playback. Hopefully I am not being too negative but I am giving a subjective & honest response to this recording. Enjoy?
