    They just sound too dry too me. Not enough of the atmosphere of the venue is captured.

    Yeah, literally the next morning, the bootleg was online. Which is pretty cool, and though I'm sure most fans would've gladly waited a week (or longer) for a higher-quality product, I can't really complain. I also have a couple from Amazon.com and they sound a lot better than the rest.

    The only issue I have with the Amazon/Apple remasters is how they added a Disc 1/2 fade-in/out (I like a full recording without interruption, myself). The audio still is pretty dry for my tastes, too. Ultimately though it's awesome we got so many shows that tour. Even if it were of similar quality, I'd welcome more quick mix soundboards from other tours. Even 2009.

    Agreed, I'll take a warts-and-all rough mix over an audience recording... or no recording at all.

    I don't know... sometimes a very bad mix can completely ruin a soundboard recording, just think of Baloise 2005!

    Those were shit versions in general. I don't need a recording of that in any form.

    The bootlegs were so fun; it made the setlist threads extra-awesome knowing we'd get to hear the whole thing afterwards.
