The music is great, oh, it's so wonderful to finally have the whole thing, the sound is so good blah blah blah etc. etc. etc.
Well, first, yes, the music is awesome. It's the Who after all. Would you really expect anything less from one of the world's most powerful live acts?
Second, no, the concert here is not complete. There is still plenty of stage banter that's been cut, not to mention edits in the songs, still. The concert is simply not complete.
But the third, oh the THIRD offense is the most drastic. Do you people *really* think that this sounds good?!?! Okay, disc 1 sounds *similar* to the 1995 Live at Leeds but not exact. But DISC 2?! It does *NOT* sound good by any means. Are you trying to tell me that you can't hear the over application of noise reduction? *That*, in case you don't know, is what caused the entirety of disc 2 to sound like it was recorded in a tin can. Literally! It doesn't sound thin, it *really* *honestly* *truly* DOES sound like it was recorded in a tin can, like it was drenched in metallic sound effects, not to mention the pointless noise reduction has also left the music sounding like it's been flanged. Listen to it through a good pair of headphones. Or even still, ANY headphones. The drums don't sound natural (they sound like they've been blanketed in a light flange the entire disc through). You can hear the results of the noise reduction best during the stage banter. It sounds incredibly processed, because it *IS*. Please, please, please, DO NOT buy this if you have any respect for your hearing or respect for classic music, because the Jon Astley's mastering has ruined great music.
Listen to it before you buy it, to see what I mean. And I don't mean listen to the sound samples, I mean listen to an entire song encoded at a high bitrate so you can hear what it sounds like without the additional distortion that results from high compression mp3's.
WHY must great music be ruined?!
