Review by itsice88

itsice88 Okay. This is an absolutely amazing show. The first set is played beautifully, and is a wonderful build up to the mind-f*** that happens during set 2. I was a bit wary to relisten to this set because I wasn't sure how the experience would live up to the relistening, but man it does...and it does in spades. A lot of attention has been drawn to Carini and it certainly deserves it, but oh my god this Down With Disease. This Disease has to be one of the most fluid, multi-faceted jams Phish has thrown down in their career, at least certainly for 3.0. Truly amazing. Plus you have a Slave that has to be one of the most patient readings in years and years, and a Hood encore that is mining the same beautiful creativity. I also find it hilarious that the band made the good call of tacking Show of Life and the end of the show so that it couldn't ruin any set and it showed how they felt about the show. If Dick's helped the band regain their Type 2 legs, this show brought the creativity and darkness of those revelations to a whole other level. Right up there with the best of 3.0. Actually, this one is a keeper for ANY era of Phish, and no you'll never get me to believe otherwise.
