I loved this CD! Contrary to the thoughts of many others, I feel the equipment breakdown really defines this release. Lie back and listen to this CD at night, lights out and headphones in, and the experience becomes etheral. Hearing Ian cry out "Everything's falling apart" had a dramatic effect on me, implying more than he had thought at the time. The rest following that is interesting, hearing the group trying to get back on their feet, and, as the others said, the woman making that announcement about the coach. After the bass amp is fixed, the rest of the show is engaging and filled with passion. It seems that since they were unable to play those few songs properly that they doubled the intensity of the rest of the set, especially in "Interzone" - Peter Hook's(?) vocals sound so malevolent and the music drives into an absolute frenzy. (Note: There are definitely two vocalists on this song, I do actually know who the singer for this band is) This is definitely a 5 star release from the greatest band ever to have existed. I apoligise for my poor grammar, but I am unable to express how great this release really is. A definite for fans of the band, as it shows a more raw side to the group that isn't experienced on their produced material.
