A 3 on AVERAGE, but that means highs and lows too. The sound throughout Hawkmoon was fairly average for an 80's bootleg, I thought, but I honestly had to check my iTunes to realize that they had begun playing Desire. It sounded like the exact same song. I realized that The Edge's guitar wasn't very clear at all- it wasn't just how it was supposed to sound during Hawkmoon. I wasn't overly impressed by this one.
Nothing I'll be revisiting. Check out some of the earliest Lovetown shows or a Point Depot show to really capitalize on what Lovetown was all about. This bootleg is great for performances that were super-rare, like "Hawkmoon" and "God Part II", but the rest of the material was just average.
-The Unforgettable Fire (only standout track that wasn't new material)
-God Part II
-Van Dieman's Land (superb)
-I Will Follow (so slow, I thought I was going to fall asleep)
And although it pains me too much to list it as a lowlight, "Bad" just did NOT cut the mustard for me on this one. And that rarely, rarely happens. Bono takes too many parts down octaves, making them easier to sing, and like I mentioned before, uses that damn opera voice when he shouldn't.
