This is a great concert. It's Joshua Tree, how can it not be?
Bono's voice is very strong and clear, more so than on the November 7th Denver boot. He can't hit the high notes in Bad and Pride, but that could be because his arm is in a sling.


This is a solid 4.5 boot. Fiddling with an EQ to bring Bono's voice into the mix also doesn't hurt things.
One complaint: at the end of WOWY and for all of "40," the recording seems to change sources. It becomes very muffled, and Bono's voice sounds distnat. Luckily, it's only these two songs that are affected; the rest of the boot is great


When you can hear them, they sound like they're enjoying themselves. Otherwise, it's a pretty quiet audience, either as a result of the recording, or they were just unlively.


A great, great, show. It's a pity it's not higher quality - that would make an already great boot even more enjoyable. This is a very pleasant find, and a great example of what top-form Joshua Tree was. A must-get!


People Get Ready - I've never heard this song before, but I'm sure U2 did Curits Mayfield justice.

Exit - for me, nothing beats the Rattle and Hum version, though this one came very close. Edge's guitar is even angrier sounding here, if that's at all possible.

Lowlights: none!
