A good sounding, complete soundboard recording. It is mastered poorly, with too much equalization being used and as a result there is clipping everywhere and a total lack of dynamic range, then the MP3 encoding makes it sound even worse. It sounds good for the first minute, then you start getting a headache from how loud it is. That's not to say it's not worth listening to, it's just a boring listen without any dynamic range.

Note that Enjoy The Silence is encoded as MP3 VBR V2, and Personal Jesus is encoded as MP3 CBR 320kbps. These seem to have been encoded from a lossless source. The rest of the recording is MP3 CBR 128kbps. I'm guessing the two different tracks were released as early teasers and were somewhat more sanely encoded.

You can find 5 lossless tracks from this source at Source 2.

The streams below have not been re-encoded; these are the same MP3 files you can download in the archive.

  • soundboard (taped by varLAX [[email protected]] - good luck trying to reach him) -> audio fucked up (way too loud, excessive EQ?) -> audio fucked up some more (MP3 128kbps / V2 / 320kbps)
