Notes: Excellent recording, super clear acoustics - one of the advantages that cardioids may sometimes have when used under the right circumstances. Like this capture, for example. The band's instruments seem to blend with each other seamlessly. Very nice. In all honesty, this is one of the better sounding 98 recordings out there. I believe that this show first came out for general trades or was released openly in 2002 so, for a while, this was hidden. The band was tight & polished at this point of their existence which is captured very accurately by the recording. Make no confusion, the taper was a deal of distance away but the recording is very clear, considering. Also features MJK as the Reverend, spreading the word of our lord to all of the world's sheep. Amusing.
"I noticed that none of you are naked and to really enjoy a Tool show, you gotta be completely naked, you gotta have your hand on a pole and, ah, your finger in a hole. And you'll really enjoy this situation a lot more. Trust me, I know. Think of us as like your porno music -- you guys go ahead and start fucking. We'll be your soundtrack; ignore us"
