DISTANCE/POSITION: 11 ➝ 15 (cams vary from full stage to extreme closeups)

AUDIO: 15 (superb EBR recording) (editor of CD made cuts between songs to save space thus requiring cuts in video to maintain a/v sync)

STEADINESS: 12 (sometimes shaky, especially VS 1 cam)

HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS: 12 (cables obstruct VS 1 view on long shots; other cams mostly unobstructed)

FOCUS/COLOR/LIGHT: 13 (VS 1 and VS 2 very good/VS 3 a little grainy and over-exposed)

EDITING: gaps in VS 1 filled with VS 2 and VS 3 footage; used stills for missing & off-target shaky parts (see setlist details)

Special thanks for the video to: THE GHOST, HANDYMAN, PINK ELEPHANT, CA & NAPBON.
Additional thanks for the audio to EBR & BLINDWILLY.
Edited, sound upgraded & authored by YASSOU.
