Captain_Fantasy Set 1
Unfortunately everything not mentioned in the set 1 review/description is not on the spreadsheet AUD.
SOAMule – As always, during the slowdown Page gets insanely quick and chaotic on the keys. The guitar/piano duel seems a bit short-winded to me, but it’s satisfying overall.
Guyute – Standard Guyute of course. There’s nothing to complain about.
Sparkle – This is a 1994 song at its core. Laugh and laughing fall apart!
Simple – The type of Simple jam you would expect to hear, but it’s done quite well. It does change pace quite abruptly due to Trey bringing out Cameron McKinney. Post-introduction it does get quite fun to listen to. The saxophone almost sounds like a joke on top of the “serious” jam being played in the background. Although the seriousness is also a joke as Fish is yelling in praise of the obviously dismal saxophone.
Divided Sky – Good rendition of Divided Sky.

Set 2
Suzy – A solid, standard Suzy.
NICU – Again, a standard rendition of a solid song.
Tweezer – Awe-inspiring polymorphous jam with a digital delay loop jam in the middle. An expansive and indeed “epic Tweezer”, this one goes places that 1994 Phish didn’t go too often. It often times is fast-paced, thrilling and rocking, while at other times is reserved, dark and even a bit creepy. Anyone who likes Phish enough to be on the .net should check this one out. It actually takes my breath away during some segments while at other times my knuckles go white waiting for a climax which may or may never come. Phish at the top of their game right here.
Sleeping Monkey – A breath of fresh air after a captivating, seemingly bottomless Tweezer. For all the jamming Phish does, it is necessary to take a step back and be goofy.
Julius – This and the other songs in set II do a good job of being type I in order to leave Tweezer standing as its own, a work of art. Julius, and the other set II songs, is like a bookend.
Encore:
Fee > Tweeprise – Once again there really isn’t a point for the band to try anything spectacular all things considered. A mellow > energetic ending, which is hard to complain about

Overall:
The first set is a bit hard to review, but the lack of songs in the AUD isn’t too big of a distress; this show is about the Tweezer. The one highlight of the first set I can pick out is simple, even though it’s disappointing they didn’t explore the jam further. The second set - I said all I can say in my summary of Tweezer. My rating – 4/5. Tweezer earns the 4, with the rest serving as filler (Phish filler > other fillers).
