Notes - Taper, typed out to me via a letter: Hello Galen! So, I promised to send you this already some time ago, My apologies but life turned to busy-mode again. Included in this package is a DVD of Tool live at the Sziget Festival in Budapest last year. The result of three people's work. I filmed it myself (complete, from the back, on a monopot), this video makes up the largest part of the DVD & my friend Dustin filmed handheld from the pit, unfortunately, it is missing some parts due to security-interference. I turned both sources into a multi-angle DVD and dubbed it with the fantastic audio-recording by mrruin, leaving a slight bit of my cam-audio in there to give the whole some 'space'. It takes a track or two for my movie to settle down, but I think you will find it in combination with the shots from Dustin and the audio to that this ended up to being one of the better Tool bootleg dvd's out there. Very unfortunate though that as for the perofmrnace this was one of the least good shows Tool ever did. Having learned from the past (we all know what happened with my Pinkpop DVD), I send this DVD to you as a gift & for information purposes. Be free to put it on your website (curious to read your review :O) but we kindly request not to use it for trades. We would want to keep control on who gets it this time around and keep it as far away from the vultures on eBay as possible. Full lineage is included in the end credits of the DVD. (BTW, the wrong time of year, but the Easter Bunny also left something behind ;-)) ~Jeroen / Wafel's
Notes - Galen: This is one of, if not the, best DVD's (note: this is on 2 single layer DVDs) of this nature every produced. That said, the production value so to speak is superb; it really looks rather professional. The primary footage is Wafel's very clear/clean video source filmed from the back right of the venue (but the close-ups are absolutely incredible) combined/mixed with another video filmed from the pit area - this one offers a lot of clear, close footage. They both are rather interesting however if one were to choose it is clear that the best one is Wafel's footage as it gets both the ambience & some more than decent close-ups. The good audio from Source A is a nice addition. All in all, this is a definitive recording for both the production, ballz & overall replay, so to speak. Top job to all the tapers involved. And the mixers in 'post'. Technically, as for performance, Tool has had better days - listen to the ramshackle cluster-fuck that is Rosetta Stoned for clues.

Maynardism:
"Thank you very much. Very nice to meet you all, hope to see again soon, thank you, good night."
