Energetic! Despite the change in the setlist, which can sometimes throw the band off their game, the performance was very good.
Not fab, but certainly not the worst I've ever heard. The sound level changes at times and I think the audience are a little too loud on the recording, especially the clapping, but it's definately listenable. Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars
Fantastic! Bono seems to be having fun with them, especially during the snippet in Bad. They are very vocal, and clapping along with every song.
I downloaded this boot for the interesting setlist, and it didn't dissappoint. I really like ISHFWILF-MLK-UF later in the set, and Bullet is good as an opener.
-Silver and Gold's first outing
-Party Girl (I love the 'stop' and 'start' by the band towards the end of the song).
-The sound, but it's not really THAT bad!

what they said
"I listened to it last week for the first time in ages and I couldn't believe I was part of it. It's a huge record. I couldn't cope with it. I remember the pressures it was made under, I remember writing lyrics on the microphone and at fifty pound an hour that's quite a pressure. Lillywhite was pacing up and down the studio... he coped really well. And the ironic thing about October is that there's a kind of peace about the album even though it was recorded under that pressure."
