Here we have, hopefully, a non-controversial show from the 2004 US tour. {grin} This
is from Milwaukee's Shank Hall, the name of the club, of course, inspired by the movie
Spinal Tap.

I was in attendance at this show,and spoke briefly to the taper at the time, but aside
from a short glance at his gear, which appeared to be quite professional - mikes on
booms by the soundboard, etc..., there's not much more I can say. This show was
torrented on (I think) shortly after the show.

It's a high quality audience recording, which I would rate 9/9.5 - A-/A.

There are several highlights, music-wise on this recording, but, the centerpiece of
this show is "Plasmoid", and the jam which follows. Harry Waters gets off a pretty
good solo on this. I recall standing at the lip of the stage being completely transported
away to another time and space. And, then because I was so gob-smacked, I yelled
the first thing I could think of. And, yes, it comes out loud and clear on the recording...
I cringe with embarassment every time I hear it. BUT, it was an honest assessment of
my feelings at the time {grin}

("You guys rock!!!!" - Listen for it just as "Tidal Convergence" begins).
