Review by n00b100

n00b100 Decent enough first set - the DWD, Stash, and LxL don't break any new ground but are fine versions (the Stash does have a neat breakdown section with Trey going proto-plinko while Fish taps away on a block). The second set starts off with a strong Ghost from a damn strong year for Ghosts, quickly slipping its funk trappings for some straight-ahead shredding more akin to, well, a DWD (Trey is really trilling like mad here), then a jamming space not unlike the almighty RCMH Ghost, then comes to an atonal, ugly close like it's 1994 all over again. Halley's is next (not sure I understand the segue arrow here), and it's a bog standard version, quickly discarded for Tweezer. This Tweezer is reasonably good, if not a blow-away version, with some interesting rhythmic choices in the jam, Page doing some fine work on the piano, before returning to the main Tweezer riff and slowing the tempo down to an absolute crawl in amusing fashion and briefly entering ambient land before segueing (and this segue is legit) into a fine Possum (with fun Born on the Bayou tease). Fall '98 aficionados will find things to like here; everyone else can safely pass.
