Sound

The Milesian Remaster is a great improvement over the old source for 1 reason: it is 99% complete! It is a mix of the old source (excellent, but with huge cuts in songs, like it was already said) and another inferior source (better than nothing). So now 11 O'Clock, Party Girl and other songs are complete. It sounds weird when the better source kicks in, but you won't miss anything from the concert. Now there's only 1 line missing from 40.
Outside these fixed glitches, the sound is excellent.

Recording: "Milesian Remaster" - 4 stars

Overall

One of the best concerts in the 5th leg of the UF tour. The band was really enjoying their NJ residency. The longest version of Bad ever! So epic. You think it is over and it picks up again and again, love it. At the end Bono was just improvising some lines about wanting to stay in this town. Just for that it's a bootleg worth having.
Someone showed propaganda for the IRA (I think) and Bono showed his disapproval for all armies (you go mate!). He also talked about his discovery of B. Springsteen and the crowd went nuts. Pride was dedicated to N. Mandela (those were the horrible days of the apartheid and he was still imprisoned).
Other Highlights: The entire concert is full of passion and good execution, specially: Wire, Electric Co., NYD (with the "maybe the time is right" part! So awesome! my fav. part of the song) and Party Girl, with the Papa Don't Come Home snippet (yes, I just made up that name )
Definitely one that it's worth having in your collection.
