DEEP: There is something very ordinary about this performance; it never reaches up and grabs me or seems to catch fire, but it threatens to spark several times. The sound quality, which I'd consider very good, also lacks excitement. The vocals are there, the instruments are well defined, but there is a lack of warmth and fullness -- it sounds clinical and cold.

CDG: An excellent recording of a chilling performance, with a particularly wonderful acoustic set.
