Review by pikepredator

pikepredator This is a solid show start to finish. The monster jams come almost back-to-back in Tweezer and Drowned.

this tweezer . . . holy crap. starts out funky, with that patient sort of groove that is gonna go places. and go places it does. around 10 minutes fishman starts to propel the beat forward, and trey soon follows suit by playing some licks that start rolling downhill, gathering momentum. Mike is in the pocket, Page isin the background.

after that trey starts heading up the volcano and at 13 minutes it's coming to a boil, similar to the one from 10/30. we get an eruption a bit later that might be the end, but lord have mercy it isn't, page is banging on the keys and the whole band is hosing everyone down without gaining too much speed (the hallmark of a power tweezer imo). they really take their time at the peak of this one and by 15:30 it's holy shit really?? Trey finally gives in to some of his signature licks but they just don't stop until about 17 minutes in. destructive four minute stretch there. the cool-down at the end is welcome and the a capella set closer is well-earned.

sweet jesus that is what a non-exploratory Tweezer is all about.
