Review by waxbanks

waxbanks Phish fans with delicate constitutions are well served just skipping the August '04 shows; this'll do for a final act if you like. The second set is an hour-and-a-half grand finale; between the Tweeprise jam in Piper, that unexpected pop-the-top climax to LxL, and a richly-deserved valediction in Velvet Sea, there wasn't much to say after this one. And that's without mentioning the thermonuclear hourlong sequence that ends Set One, or the wonderfully overextended Ocean to open Set Two. This show isn't to everyone's taste, but if you're already a fan it plays like the kicker ending to a yearlong joke - check out that self-deprecating Purple Haze tease, for god's sake. The rest of June '04 is strong, of course, but to my ears this is the hammer blow.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
