Some folks are confused & believe that this is a Hi-Mini Disc recording rather than a compressed recording via ATRAC. If the above information regarding the recorder used is accurate, then this is not Hi-MD. Please refer to http://www.minidisc.org/part_Sony_MZ-N707.html
Notes:  For the given source information you would not think a recording would sound as decent as this. Sure, you can plainly here the quasi-high end distortion when MJK belts out the 3rd chorus from Rosetta Stoned but all in all, if someone were interested in hearing what a recording with equipment basically pushed to the maximum level of performance possible than this recording. Do not get me wrong, the higher the SPL the more the limitations of the equipment are apparent & quite a few of instances where the taper and/or friends are chatting... To this source's credit, that issue does not interfere all that much with the recording. After all, as the date of this review (11/14/2006) this source is the first to surface with the first of (hopefully) many setlist additions to the ever-evolving Tool live performance. With the addition of Swamp Song, this signified the missing ingredient to the uber-quasi-cyber-Tool-dork's hope of being a lucky participant in a Tool performance where they perform something a bit out of the comfort zone... something like Swamp Song. Worth it? Sure.
