Review by Murphish

Murphish Light, which I have heard was initially part of the Time Turns Elastic composition, last night secured its spot in the special catalog of phish songs which the band is willing to "open-up" for some heavy exploratory jamming. It weaved carefully through numerous passages which provided a weclome dose of some edgy, dangerous phish sound. Cheers to the band for layering on a similarly exotic Tweezer shortly thereafter as a 'tip of the hat to one of their classic platforms for this type of free-form creation.

Great high energy openers followed by a funky wolfman's provided a great jumping off point for the band's triumphant return to MSG. I've been defending Ocelot as a personal favorite recently against the growls of some phriends, but I can't say I disagree with their assertion that the song is stretched somewhat. I personally like the whining guitar solo at its inception but dont think they should escalate it to an arena rock level as they seem to do relentlessly these days. Crowd uninvolved in brian & robert, poor heart lacked a trey solo but he nailed the final riff. Sample was broken when trey missed a chord, but they made up for it with a gift of Peaches en Regalia...hadn't been played in over a decade!
