Taper notes:
"The boys are back for the second leg of the Time Machine tour. Unfortunately, no setlist changes. Please, why can't they just play Jacob's Ladder like Alex said they would??? 
If burning to disc, suggested split points are between tracks 12 and 13, and 20 and 21.

Since setlist is the same, i won't repeat it here. Full setlist, info and the artwork in the rar pack.

Taper Note:
"This is a distinct source from both Tapehead2's. I have not yet listened to either of those, but because they were made with more expensive equipment and from a better location, I would guess that they are of significantly higher quality. If you download only one recording of this show, this should probably not be the one."
Source:  Zoom H-2 (internal mics) -> WAV -> Audacity (normalization, track splits) -> FLAC -> DAD

Taper Notes²: 
"There were some very loud pyrotechnics that required me to use much more severe compression than I have in the past on this, but I do not think it had much of an impact on the sound. Note that the sets are not divided one onto each disc because the second one was a bit too long.  I thought the sound of the venue, from where I was sitting at least (in the rafters, a bit more than halfway from the left of the stage), was quite bad. Thus, I am not particularly pleased with the sound of the recording. I might call it a 4/10".
