"The mix and mastering on this recently released, complete, final show of the 10-show run at Madison Square Garden on July 1, 2000 is superior to the previously released Live in New York City DVD and double CD set. Yes, it sounds like Max is playing right in front of you. Bruce's vocals are clear, Roy's piano and Danny's organ are complimentary, Garry's bass is very present but not overpowering, Patti's voice is velvety, Clarence's sax, Nils' guitar and Steve's guitar and mandolin are incendiary on the high energy numbers. Bruce's guitars, well, sound soulful, angry, excited, happy, reflective, et al. And the fact that it is the complete show, unlike the previous releases, lends to the enjoyment of listening on your stereo or headphones. You don't have to close your eyes to imagine being in the audience in front of the stage. (Oh, to have experienced the magic in person!) If you're on the hunt for a comprehensive, uncommonly good show from Bruce and the band, including their trademark, frictionless transitions, check out this one. And if you like the DVD and 2-CD set compiled from multiple shows, I think you'll really enjoy this complete show of their final performance of the Reunion Tour at the Garden."

"After hearing most of the show on my home system (HD, Flac) I can say that the most prominent difference in sound between this release and the CD's is in Max's bass drum, some may find this tiring while others, like me, will enjoy the heck out of it. As I didn't attend the show nor heard the original master tapes I can't say whether this mixing choice gets you closer to the live sound so it boils down to a matter of taste and system capabilities. Bruce's voice doesn't sound as lost in the mix as the original notes suggest and the guitars are better spread over the soundstage which adds a little clarity to the "wall of sound" heard on the original mix. Songs like Atlantic City and American Skin sound amazing, but listening to Blood Brothers' closing verse will raise the hair on the back of your neck."

"Compared to the DVD released previously, this mix is absolutely aweful! The increase in warmth of the base as described in Backstreets review really comes across to me as a "wall of sound", and leaves out key things that make a live E Street performance unique. For example, at the beginning of My Love Will Not Let You Down, the piano is buried in the mix, making the professor's keys buried as background noise. The softer songs are ok, but the rock songs are very noisy. Wish they would have made it like the previouosly released DVD. Please nugs, pass along please consider a new mix!!!"
