Performance

This was an EXCELLENT show. Loving the The Fly, EBTTRT and Mysterious Ways coming in 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively. Reminds me of ZooTV all over again.

Not a mistake in this bootleg, not at all. Elevation really does show U2's dominance in live music and how they can attract thousands upon thousands to their concerts.

As for the songs, the ATYCLB material was brilliant in this bootleg. Especially the rare material like EBTTRT was good.


Sound

Great sound came from this bootleg, really would like a 5 star sound.
Recording: "Vibrations (IEM-AUD Matrix)" - 5 stars

Audience

Really good. But I've never felt Chicago audiences excellent, ever. This can be evident in the Vertigo 2005: Chicago DVD. I've listened to about 3 or 4 Chicago shows and I struggle to get it further above 4 stars.

Overall

Amazing bootleg, especially for it's performance. Now it was evident that Elevation was aced.
