Review by DaReba

DaReba Holla to phistracks for all my reviews!!When I got these tapes I was pumped . had to listen to this one because of the expectations I remember of the show and then reading reviews. so this is my objective take
Wilson was fire. the guys are on and the fans are pumped
this divided sky is powerful to say the least . Fish is the star. Trey is aware and on top of things including the loud bombastic train that the rest of the band has formulated. then trey goes into his DEG-CPU-jam where he's in the sam octave as page and mike. I love it. Page gives us some perfect chords at the end. Solid Didvided sky
I dont like horn as a song on phish's best nights so....
You could tell by SOAM the crowd was trashed becausue the enthusiasm dissipated . The opening notes didn't elicit the same screams as the other songs and this is a better song than horn.
They are on fire as far as the instruments go. You can hear Trey isnt singing really into the mic but his guitar work is still the same tempo as fish and the rest of the band.
Fish shines here. Trey is content to lay back because he can the trio of fish , gordon, and page is heavy and moving. Trey's ear is so incredible he's loving being engulfed in this metal ball of sound on stage... in my humble opinion...the y brung the jam to a faling metal box ending
Ya MAr was a gimme at the venue and whatever..
Funky Bitch starts off with a bang! again.just listen to Fish and you gotta dance!
Trey is on point. This is a stoner Rock Dance PArty. Page's chords are brilliant and raw . The band is tight. Page's solo is ridiculous. Trey's rhythm guitar playing is always entertaining. The crowd is awake out of the smoker haze by the end of the song. Many request are shouted.
then trey thanks the crowd and acknowledges the no curfew and jokes about leaving to smoke some hash. trey explains the evolution of the name of the song taste.
They proceed into a musically perfect version of the song. Lyrically trey flubs like he did on the santana tor earlier in the month
What happens next is beautiful music. Fish , again , is on point, so is page.
This Them is not extroadinary . but its a fun loud listen. Trey sits back and just pushes this behemoth as far as the moment allows. The fan are silent when the verse starts at the end of the jam, like a prayer.
