Review by uffizi_esquandolas

uffizi_esquandolas Opener was a dud! I love everything phish and I try so hard to embrace the new material (as in everything created in 3.0), but kill devil falls has just never done it for me. It was nice to experience a destiny unbound, but it came at such a weird place that i couldn't fully enjoy it. Personally, I was looking for some energy here. Things really got going during maze, the jam was seemingly long (although I haven't actually been able to see how long it actually ran for). Yarmouth is good! Some new stuff I can possibly look forward too? SOAM killed--I think part of this had to do with the pouring rain feeling so exhilarating and relieving the relentless humidity. Maybe it wasn't anything special, but it felt like one of the greatest SOAM's I've ever experienced. Set II destroyed. DWD had a sweet dark and spacey intro with an incredible jam. Free is always a great rocker tune. The guy in front of me actually predicted Free as the second song during the DWD jam, which was pretty cool. BAtR is fun, the crowd all sings along, and the whole no-jam thing is just accepted at this point and I think it's what kinda makes the song cool. BOAF went to some interesting places in the jam, but overall that song has never been one of my fav's. Hood was so tight and precise, but the energy wasn't quite there from the boys. Architect was a good calm before the storm that was Mike's Simple Groove. I lost my shit the entire time that trio of songs played.
waste encore was weird because it slowed things down and sucked out all the energy between the mikes groove and GTBT. if anything i think the encore order should have been flipped. Take the energy from the end of set II and jump right in to GTBT. Then end the night with a mellow waste. That being said, I was glad to hear waste! Overall, decent show, but not the greatest. The rain pouring down during SOAM was one of the coolest things I've experienced at a phish show.
