Performance

It's been too long since I listened to a JT show. This one has a quite nice performance, but not much feels stellar. Bono's voice is, well, JT-ish. Pretty nice and full but pretty bad on the high notes. He sounds like a frog during Pride's chorus. The best performance was Exit, it had a cool snippet and was generally awesome.

The band tried to change the setlist for this show... it didn't quite work but I give them creds for trying. I also felt a lack of snippets in a few songs.


Sound

The sound is fully decent for a 24 years old recording. It is a bit muddy and overly bassy, but you hear everything. You unfortunately hear some crowd talking at times which is a bit annoying, but no biggie really. The taper seemed to get very excited by Bad, something that gave us an annoying tapping sound. The sound is also very muffled during Streets, so that song is unfortunately not very enjoyable.

Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars

Audience

I really like them, they manage to give a very nice atmosphere.


Overall

It's a nice Joshua Tree show. Most songs are done very well, but at the same time lack that little bit of extra.

Highlights:

Exit
Help (nice speech)
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Bullet The Blue Sky

Lowlights:

Pride
Trip Through Your Wires
How wrong WoWY sounded after October
The general lack of snippets
