Evanescence is a superb band and I love everything from the singer, Amy Lee, to the music and lyrics too. Unfortunately, at this time they're not doing anything and Amy Lee did a solo release which I did not get. It was sold via the web as an mp3 download only. I will NEVER buy an mp3 release. Had it been FLAC or another lossless format, I'd have gotten it. I'm still steaming somewhat over that stupid stunt. I hope the band gets back together, gets in the studio, and then gets back on the road soon because they really are great to see live and I've seen (and recorded) every Dallas show since twelve days after this one (10/21) when I first saw them. And I'm ready for some more!

The waveform looks excellent for this show! And that's another testament to the fact ALANiS is a knowledgeable taper.
The following is a copy & paste of ALANiS' notes in their post. They're kind of funny I think:
"The opening of "Sweet Sacrifice" starts off a little rough, Amy's mic wasn't turned on for the opening lyrics and then the sound guy blasted her vocal, but quickly adjusted it. Also, near the end of "Going Under", two little hoes decided they wanted to stand directly in front of us. I got to the venue at 4pm to secure my front row balcony seat and they thought they could just get to the venue late, come to the front of the balcony railing, and stand in front of us. I don't think so. My friend had a confrontation with them and ended up getting a security guard to get them moved (during the ending of "Haunted" - You can hear the security guard telling them to return to their seat). Anyways, for the end of "Going Under" and the end of "Haunted" the sound is a little muffled because the hoes were blocking my line of sight to the speaker stacks. Other than that, pretty good recording overall with little to no audience rambling."
I hope you enjoy the show...
