The band's in a good mood, eg Bono's alter egos, Larry's little speech before "Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World" or Edge's nice solo in "With Or Without You".
It also has some lil 'mistakes', eg the piano play in "New Year's Day" or when Larry misses his drumming part during "When Love Comes To Town".


Regarding the MATRIX: Awesome job Noiseless did!
The sound is pretty clear and very decent. You can hear the instruments in a great balance. Cannot get much better in cases of Matrixes imo.
PS: Also highly recommended is Noiseless' upgrade on Sarajevo 1997.

Recording: Soundboard - 4.5 stars


Although the main focus is on the band's performance, the audience is mixed in greatly where appropriate and suitable. However, you do not get an all-live feeling throughout the concert, BUT almost.


Solely the sound quality should make the Matrix a must have in your collection.

The concert itself has got a rather personal touch as Bono makes references to East Rutherford a couple of times, which really makes it something special.

Songs that stand out for me are:
- Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World (nice singing/expressing by Bono, great guitar towards the end which sometimes really reminds you of/IS "Montgomery's Visit", an Achtung Baby Outtake, and the snippet of "Three Little Birds" - not "Love And Affection" as stated in the setlist.
- When Love Comes To Town (great version in general, especially because Larry forgets his drumming, and Edge sings parts of the vocals, too)
- I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For (great, great laid-back-version)
- With Or Without You (Shine Like Stars-snippet and great guitar solo by The Edge)
- Love Is Blindness (sends shivers down your spine, so to speak...)

The only "lows", if you count them as such, are the little mistakes in "New Year's Day" and "When Love Comes To Town".
