Notes: This is not the best sounding source for this show but it is a very good capture. MJK's vocals are up in the mix but at times it sounds like this was recorded from some distance away. A bit of crowd chatter and screams can sometimes seem to be an over-powering experience. Not really sure what else to say about this particular recording as, really, MK4 recordings are generally simply exceptional - and this source delivers nicely. At times though it seems, to me, that the audio is extra crispy and almost swishy; something I am not a massive fan of. The performance... again... does it not strike anyone rather strange that Tool performed at a jam-band, hippy-infested gathering? Suppose the organizers knew the color of money. It is also strange that Tool, being extremely anti-taping, performed at Bonnaroo - a concert that allowed people to audio record. Apparently Tool had people go in the crowd asking tapers to take down their stands/trees & to not tape. Yeah, that works. WTF.

Maynardism: "I took a shower this morning and hung out in my Bus with A/C, jealous?"
