Notes from the taper:
this is my master. recorded a few meters in front of the soundboard,
slightly from the right side (i was in the center before the concert
started but decided to move a bit left since there was more space
and not so much fear of babbly people right next to me). this one's
very well one of my best masters, clear full and spacious sound. the
sound was really good in this concert, probably the best sounding
concert i've been to in the old ice hall. so, if i may say so, if
you already liked borlag's recording i think you should love this
one too. about the gig itself: what can i say? finally PT have acknowledged
those of us stranded here in finland and we surely weren't disappointed
now. being a big fan of gavin, i was secretly hoping to hear 'hatesong'
(although i believed this to be a fool's hope). but you can imagine
i couldn't have been happier as it turned out they played it on both
finnish dates. other personal highlights from this concert were 'waiting',
'anesthetize' (although even better in tampere), 'sleep together'
and... well, no complaints really!
