A high quality recording of Coil's live performance at Irving Plaza in New York City on August 18, 2001 as part of Convergence7. Coil gave their blessing to Don Poe to record and release the performance on a non-profit basis via mail order.

The CDR is packaged in a jewel case with a tray card but not booklet and is only available in a set with a VHS copy of the concert. They both feature a recording of the complete concert with audio recorded from the soundboard. The video also includes 25 minutes of soundcheck footage, and a short scene backstage after the show.

The Video was produced in NTSC, PAL and SECAM formats on demand.

The VHS section of the tracklist on here is inaccurate as the Soundcheck is the last segment of the video, not the first.

This concert is probably the best one I've heard with this tracklist (cos they played few tours with completely different tracklists). It really blows my mind - and what a great sound quality. Probably even better than some of the "official" Live CDs. First "Something" is definitely better than studio version - wooshing noises and those John's odd vocals... Next great moment is "What Kind Of Animal Are You?" - very aggressive version. "Blood From The Air" slightly disappointed me - I don't like the idea of that mutated vocals. I never really liked "I Am The Green Child", but it's a good relaxing song in-between.
I love when the last track is the best and it's like this here - "Constant Shallowness Leads To Evil" really kicks ass! Balance ends singing after 6 minutes and for the next 10 we have great grinding noise-electronic fest (with guitar riffs! Which fits excellent here).
The best concert from "Constant Shallowness Leads To Evil". Absolutely.
