So what makes "Tokyo Dome" such a worthwhile listen? Well, Eddie for one. It seems with each recent tour, Eddie gets better as Dave gets worse: the 2007 tour had Dave in excellent voice and Eddie's playing was solid but still a bit rough around the edges (but several universes removed from the train wreck he was on the 2004 tour, his undisputed low point as a musician and human). Fast forward to 2012-13, and Eddie is now playing excellent, as evidenced on this record: Eddie's playing is fast, clean and furious, and recent videos have showcased that he has only improved on the current tour, while Dave's voice is just gone. Alex still rocks the skins, and while Michael Anthony is sorely missed, there's no denying that Wolfgang is more than competent.
Even if Dave struggles often, he still rises from the ashes on occasion, and there are some all around solid performances on this disc: the opening shot of "Unchained" and "Runnin' with the Devil" is just fantastic, the new songs from "A Different Kind of Truth" all come off well, and "And the Cradle Will Rock" is just a monster here; Roth is on vocally and Eddie is just a monster here. The encore is a lot of fun, even if Roth is REALLY pushing the limits here.
The sound is good, a nice live sound, and the packaging is pretty cool. This is not definitive live VH by any means, but a solid release overall.
I also have the CD's, and the vinyl sounds way better than the CD's. Much better low end and drum sound.
Yeah Dave's voice is kind of all over the place, but overall it is a really high energy recording and a great historical document.
If you are a VH fan like myself you will enjoy the music but the vocals are a little hard to listen to.
