I recently acquired this ROIO and looked it up on DRE and there were no comments or ratings, so I will offer my humble opinion. The recording is distant and the low end is almost non-existant. Neil's cymbals come through, but the drums are very hard to hear. At times Alex's guitar fades. Geddy's vocals are understandable most of the time. There are a couple of what I will call "glitches" in the recording. Non-technical description, I know. However, I do not think they are cuts or flips, just a loss of audio for brief periods. The completist collector will want the recording, no doubt, but if you collect shows for simple listening pleasure as I do, pass on this one. There are much better sounding shows out there from the Hemispheres Tour, such as Black Forest, A Desert Passage PE, Buenas Nochas, and A Single Perfect Sphere.   (2008-04-06)
