The show starts out a little slow (with the exception of "Bottle of Blues" and "Tropicalia"), and doesn't really get going until "Deadweight," when most of the Mutations stuff is done. The first half of the show isn't bad, just...calm.
During the first half of the show we're treated to a rare "One Of These Days." Second time they played it live, ever, and it sounds pretty solid. The rare track doesn't exactly pick things up, but it's still great to hear.
Beck tries to speak some Japanese throughout. Apparently, at one point he asks if the crowd is ready to explode. They cheer loudly! Then the band plays "Dead Melodies."
"Beercan" is great too, they really kick it out. Towards the end Beck throws in a little Tag Team action. "Diamond Bollocks" and "Debra" make quite a back-to-back combination!
Overall, I find this to be a somewhat awkward show. It could be because of the sound quality of the bootleg, which is clear but distant, thin and tinny, I dunno. But some of the songs come off a little odd, can't quite put my finger on it.
