TheEmu It sounds like there is actually some really ripping work from the boys on this one, including a Foam which has some unique zest (despite a little sloppiness), Cavern with a little pop, some nice Cactus at the end of Mockingbird (despite a fairly rough Forbin), and especially a really fiery Chalkdust Torture. All of that is pretty much masked, though, by the atrocious sound quality on the available recording. It improves a little as the show goes on, but overall it's really hissy and not a good listen. So, despite the high points above and the remainder of the show being average-great, I'm going to have to go two stars unless I can hear a crispier recording.
