I bought this on CD, not from iTunes, but the mix is still bad. There's far too much bass. It drowns out the other instruments and the vocals. Luckily, I can just turn down the subwoofer on my sound system, but I shouldn't have to. This is better than the Rust In Peace Live album, though. At least the vocals aren't overdubbed. The dropped tuning sounds great on some songs, not so great on others. overall, it's alright. Not bad. Not great.
can anyone tell me what the hell Dave is playing??because most of the time it cant POSSIBLY be a guitar. Half the time its like he's using the feedback as notes! Although I gotta admit Symphony of Destruction sounds HEAVY in D tuning.
The setlist is fantastic, the performance is really good, but the sound quality is horrible. How was this even OKed? But either way, buy the Blu-Ray instead of this iTunes version. It sounds a gazillion times better.
Crappy Bootleg Sound
Why is the sound so bad for an official release? Super low end release.
Why try to top That One Night?
The audio on this is terrible. That One Night was a fantastic live album, how do you put out something so vastly inferior within a few short years.
I agree with the other reviewer, it feels like Dave is just trying to compete with Through The Never.
Buy instead live at the Cow Palace from the 20Th edition
Megadeth fan since Killing, but the mix is horrible, Dave sounds tired and also Shawn Drover, miss Menza on drums!
Is it just me, or is the sole purpose of this to compete with Metallica's Through the Never? Come on Dave, you don't have to fight the same battles.
Awesome show but the mix is bad. Room mics are too loud.
Check the sound quality...
Megadeth fan since 2005. CTE has always been one of my favorite albums of theirs, so naturally I was looking forward to this release quite a bit. However, the sound quality takes away from what could be an excellent experience - the guitars sound muddy and the bass is much too high in the mix. Additionally, Dave Mustaine's vocals sound drowned in the mix half the time. It's a real shame, as this live album could have sounded much, much better with proper mixing and mastering - the D standard tuning used on the album gives an even heavier feel to some of these Megadeth classics. I just wish the sound quality was much better than it actually is.
Better check twice before buying...

The set and songs are great but the sound quality is absolutely horrible. There is so much bass in the frequency that I just can;t understand how this was released. Huge Megadeth fan since Peace Sells days so I was not too pleased.
