COMMENT

A phenomenal release, and perhaps the best document of an Act II show there is. This is the only circulating soundboard of an Act II concert, which itself makes this release great. The addition of the remaining bonus material just makes this even more appealing. The Lüneburg concert is a basic, but enjoyable show. Unusually there is no 'Little Red Corvette' played, hence the piano segment is very short. The encore includes a very bassy 'Pope', and closes with 'Peach', which include some added lyrics, including the line "I got a boner as big as a drum stick Michael used to play in 9th grade". The Sheffield tracks are from the cancelled radio broadcast of the show on Capitol FM, and have since become available in more complete form on Sabotage's 'Starlight Lounge'. The Radio 1 concert broadcast again is a nice addition to the set, although they are already heavily circulating. The closing tracks from the Munich Act II aftershow are a strange bonus. They are taken from the MTV broadcast, and are each barely 45 seconds long - something of a tease. I am aware that some versions of this release come with the Vienna 25th August 1993 Act II show, whilst others have the Wegberg 28th August 1993 Act II show. The packaging is very cool, however there is a tracklisting mistake on the back cover - no biggie. Overall though, an (as yet) unequalled release of 1993 soundboard/broadcast footage.
