notes from taper:

After the last show I attended two years ago, this one was a no-brainer. Granted, I'm not as big a fan of the Transcendence album but Dev did a great job at cherry picking the better tracks from this album and playing them among a fantastic assortment from the rest of his catalogue. The band was simply on point, even with Dev's struggling vocal chords, which have probably taken a beating on this tour. Simply put, Dev and his boys never fail.

Technically, the sound guy did a pretty reasonable job overall. There was a fair amount of EQ'ing required but on the multiband dynamic compression front, very little work needed to be done to tame the overall sound. One thing that does disappoint me is that I was a little too conservative with my level adjustment on the recorder and as a result of the significant boosting required, it also raised the noise floor significantly. That's why the Izotope RX5 Advanced spectral repair software had to be brought into it, particularly for the more mellow, "Ih-Ah!" tune.

Overall, I give this one a B-. As usual, listen to the samples and be your own judge.

...and please, don't sell this bootleg, otherwise you're just plain old scum. That and Dev will drink a lot of coconut water and piss you into the next room.
