    I am a huge APC and Tool fan, but there is one reason this bothers me. They are including the first two albums and slapping a higher price on it. I believe this will be the first officially released live footage from MJK the front man of Tool and APC.

    Tool already re-released their first album opiate earlier this year with new artwork, signatures, and a chance at receiving a special ticket but the music was exactly the same just with a higher price. So now if we want to get unreleased stuff from APC we are going to get slapped with this extra charge, for 3 albums fans probably already have…

      Unless I read this wrong, I don’t believe that you are getting the first two albums again. I think that you get the first two albums (as well as eMotive) PERFORMED LIVE.

      They did a tour a few years ago where, each night, they performed one of their albums in full. The audience had no idea which album they would see, but this set seems to be recordings taken from that tour.

      I’m a huge fan, as well, but I can’t afford to shell out $150 bucks for this set right now. Too bad, as it looks to be a hell of a nice package for the money.

      • JonathanBarkan

        Yup, you’re right. It’s the first two albums performed live in their entirety.

        • godless

          Yeah I noticed that, after re-reading it, sorry about that. I do recall the shows where they played the albums in they’re entirety, but the tickets were pretty pricy…

          • JonathanBarkan

            No worries! And yeah, those shows were not for the casual concert goer, that’s for sure.

    I’m glad to see “By and Down,” “Ashes to Ashes,” and “Diary of a Lovesong” will be on there. I really hope they put the original live version of “Vacant” on there, too, because I prefer it to “Passive.”
