Notes: Not going to kid you, the recording quality is not amazing. There is lots of crowd noise & sometimes it may peak out but the overall vibe of the gig is maintained in a positive manner. The audio is a little bit muddy in a way and also is slightly distant, that is a shame but there are other sources out there of this particular performance. The audio is completely listenable & it simply adds another element to understanding the music of Tool during this particular era as well as this gig. Hell, the audio quality -easily, easily- could have been terrible, this recording certainly is not that. All in all, a decent & rare-ish recording. It is worth noting that the analog cassette version is perhaps a bit clearer all around. And, there is a VHS of this somewhere but it is basically either moving, features back-head shots, out of focus & erratic that it is almost not worth really watching more than once in the background. The audio from this show is a good enough indicator if what the video would be.
