Along with the other two NYC shows, this one is no less inspiring and powerful: given the still tense, raw nature of NY post-9/11, there was no other band or artist more suiting to help heal the broken people of NYC than U2, plus no better tour to experience such healing. On all 3 nights the band gave everything they had as did the audience, but something about this 2nd show in particular where the high level of spiritual emotion and elevation (excuse the pun) is as way up there might make this the peak of thier NYC shows. The whole band is on pure fire here, every note, drumbeat and vocal sung and played until the very last breath, putting their whole performance in this one show. And it shows,
Excellent sound quality... for the most part. At times it sounds a lot like a Soundboard recording and those can put too much emphasis on the band and less on the audience. I like my band / audience level to be balanced, but for this show, you still get a clear balance of the crowd and the band.
Emotional, excited, ecstatic and elevated (again, excuse the pun), the crowd put their whole selves into the music, not holding anything back.
Flaws and all, this is still a great show -- Irish rockers healing a nation in grief and mourning with their music in ways no other band can. I think if Sarajevo was their big healing moment for PopMart, these shows and this one was the healing moment for Elevation. Truly and forever a great and powerful show.

Can we ask you to write a short review after you have listened?.
I know this is up here already as a matrix, but you'll have to excuse me for not trusting too much in others work. No, I haven't heard it, it might be fabulous, but I can't give it good odds. There are two people in the scene who have remastered material that I can happliy listen to, but I've yet to hear a source blend that I thought was worth the time and effort of those who did them.
Also, U2 is not the type of band to benefit all that much from a blend anyways, as their live shows over the past 15 years have been heavily choreographed and automated, with the board getting all of what will hit the stacks. Drum machines, samples, loops and all FX will go through the board, and it's fully pre-determined and controlled, there will be no surprises.
Now the source. It's exactly what DSBD's sound like; clear, clean and razor thin. Actually, it's so clean that I hear a slight sizzle in some of the passages, nearly on the verge of breaking up, but never does. And there was no beef to speak of, none at all.
So it got hammered, 13 style. Compression, Q'ing, width, depth, maximization.
