I've been trying to cure my NIN fix by listening to show recordings from reflectinginthechrome.com, but I'm not really sure where to start. Is there a general consensus on which show or shows would be the best to listen to? I've listened to the final night show recordings, but I'm more curious about other tours.

First of all, let me say that the final night show was NOT one of the best. Too much focus on special guests, not enough focus on nailing the songs.

I can't remember any good bootlegs from 2009 or 2008 right now, but the two concerts from Vienna in 2007 are fucking spectacular. The first one contains perhaps the single greatest Somewhat Damaged/Last combo I've heard, and the second one was opened by half of The Downward Spiral. Get them:

I guess that pretty much every soundboard recording is quite essential, but apart from that:

the two Vienna recordings from 2007 are great indeed! Another 2007 performance I really like is the last day in Tokyo: http://reflectinginthechrome.com/shows/2007/20070520.html

It features pretty much every song you would have wanted to hear in 2007 IMHO except for the becoming and this version of me I'm not is the one that I listen to the most since that song was released.

Gasometer (Vienna) and Studio Coast are excellent suggestions.

Here's a curation of the professional recordings:

And here's what RITC considers the best recordings of the past 20 years:

There is also the guy who mad a giant collection of the best live performance of every single song ever played between 1988 and 2009: http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/6640218
It is decent but I don't agree with all of the choices. He also purposely left out all the "pro" recordings that exist. It is a great start for someone who isn't sure what to go after.

I manually reencoded that to v0 MP3, fixed most of the broken naming, and pushed it into ID3 tags.... if anyone wants it.

Yes and I've been dying to track it down somehow but to no avail since the NIN drive is too expensive for me. :(

1995/10/11 in St. Louis, MO, a.k.a. the Dissonance tour soundboard of many names, dates, locations, and configurations. stunning tour and performance that night from both Bowie and NIN. having one of these shows included in a 'best of NIN live' list is essential, imo, as there hasn't quite been a tour like it since (and hadn't been before!).

Where do I get the full show of this? The one from RITC does not feature the rest of the Bowie set.
