This bootleg features a pretty standard Popmart show from the first part of the European leg. There aren't many surprises on this one. During the intro of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" Bono talks about U2's first performance in Sweden and delivers the speech of how the band got scared of the corporate monster and decided to eat it before it could eat them. The Edge karoakes to "Daydream Believer", just like he did on most dates in the States. "Bullet The Blue Sky" has snippets of "I Wanna Live In America". It's hard to believe, but the manufacturers not only put "Please" and "Where The Streets Have No Name" on separate discs, but also cut out the beautiful transition between the two songs. This is a terrible shame. "Lemon (Perfecto Mix)" and "Discothèque" are indexed together. The latter has a nice jammy end with snippets from "Black Betty", "Whole Lotta Love" and lyrics from one of the "Discothèque" remixes. Bono talks to a girl in the crowd and dances with her during "If You Wear That Velvet Dress". In fact it's the same girl he invited onstage during "Bullet The Blue Sky". He also sings snippets of an unidentified song during "Mysterious Ways". MLK is kept very short, which ends a nice but not outstanding concert. The sound quality is excellent for an audience recording. The manufacturers "may" have filtered out the audience noise somewhat, which makes the sound a little artificial, although this is only an assumption. The sound is very balanced and in my opinion definitely better than e.g. POPDREAM BELIEVER - FIRST NIGHT IN EUROPE. All in all this is a good Popmart bootleg, but only for people who actually went to this show and completists like myself. There are other Popmart shows (especially from the 4th leg), which feature more inspired and spirited performances by the band. The bonus tracks are very nice. All the tracks from the Zoo TV concert in 1992 aren't on the bootleg IS THIS A PARTY OR WHAT? and thus the two form a nice combination. If you combine the two bootlegs, only "Desire", "With Or Without You" and "Love Is Blindness" are absent. Hopefully one day they will pop up in the same sound quality on some other bootleg.
