Comments: When I was first listening to this, I said to myself (What the hell is this shit?) but then I actually listened to the whole thing, and its pretty damn good. The performance is much better than the Live in Lakeland Platinum Edition show, but they are both very good. The sound is not as good as Live in Lakeland Platinum Edition, but its a hell of a lot better than most Signals shows, and the sound is actually very good. The first 30-40 minutes isn't by all means bad, but it wasn't very good. Then it got to "The Analog Kid" and it was very clear, and much better sounding. I really like this show, its much better than some shows that I have heard. A show you could really want, if you can stand 40 minutes of compression to get to an amazing sounding audience bootleg.

Comments: Definatly better than most of the audience bootlegs that I own. The sound is excellent, it is much better than the pervious Live In Lakeland, with much improved sound. The audience is still loud, but they are evem quiet during the songs themselves, which makes this an amazing bootleg. Another incredible thing about this one is that it has pre-released versions of "Subdivisions" and "The Analog Kid" which are really impressive. The sound, as I have said, is great. The performance is pretty good, but there are problems with the instruments. The keyboards, or more likely the pedals, failed the band in "Freewill" and "2112" but it got better after that. Other than the pedal problems, this is a must have bootleg.
