At Woodstock 1994 (ROIO)

Trent Reznor isn't high on my list as an innovator of music, but this bootleg, even given the bad audience recording, captures one of the more powerful performances at Woodstock 1994 in the ways the official CD release does not. In my review of Pink Floyd's live album, Pulse, I cited the dry recording as a reason why the album failed to move me. This is not a problem with this tape. Even someone who isn't very fond of Nine Inch Nails can easily appreciate the fact that Reznor sang and played his heart out for the massive crowd that assembled in Saugerties, NY, simply by listening to the tape alone. This, in my opinion, should be the goal of any live release by a band.
