This one is chaotic and great. Sound quality is excellent, you can close your eyes and imagine that you are there. Several nice seamless transitions between songs. Some interesting glimpses of Fugazi making decisions - Brendan calling out 'No Surprise' a song in advance as pointed out by Gunter, and the band starting to play 'Sweet and Low' before changing course and going into 'Reprovisional'.

Instrumental version of Floating Boy is something else.

Listening to this recording is a tremendous delight. Even though the previous poster (and actual attendee) pointed out that a number of things went awry on this particular night, none of these mishaps can be retraced from the recorded document. What can be heard though, is that the band did have an edge that night, resulting in an excellent performance with plenty of highlights.
These include Styrofoam, Bad Mouth, Floating Boy, No Surprise (première; ironically Brendan loudly insists on playing this song during the beginning of the previous one), Long Division, Public Witness Program, and Back to Base.
Also, make sure to check out the renditions of Two Beats Off and Reprovisional featured here, since these are truly exceptional and outright stellar!
So, all in all, there's only a couple of words left to say. Get this. Now.

While I remember this show as if it were yesterday, I'm sure the band wishes they could forget it. Everything seemed to go wrong; the monitors weren't working right, the Japanese crowd couldn't understand Ian's pleas to stop moshing, and then Guy's microphone broke, and when they tried to fix it, it hit him in the head, causing a bloody gash. The result? Like a chapter from Henry Rollins' book "Get into the van", the frustration and anger seemed to channel magically into the music. The whole band had an edge that night, and just ROCKED. I remember thinking the vain in Ian's neck during "Reclamation" was going to take over his body. Also an amazing opening performance by Make Up and OOIOO, who I ended up seeing about 10 more times that year.
