Review by Palmer

Palmer SET 1 Very enjoyable show via couch tour, spent a majority of the show anticipating some rare songs during the last of the Northern Cal shows, and they didn't disappoint. Crowd > Divided was a good start and Wilson > Foam brought back a little energy during the first set. Halley's was short and sweet and segued into My Soul, a Ya Mar is always a nice touch to the set, and hearing Mike is a good treat. Army of One followed, Page on the ivory keys and vocals. Taste hit and continued to hit hard, the best song in the set IMO, Trey seemed to nail it and the band continued to keep the rhythm and then Trey erupted into guitar madness. Gumbo followed > Trainsong ( nice to see it un shelved after a long time, something like 2 years or so). Pebbles and Marbles ended Set 1 and Taste was defined by this writer as the best of the show thus far.
SET 2 Energy brought the Energy (not my fav cover but ill tell ya well done). Runaway Jim exceeded it's usual time ( a sick slowly space like jam during the conclusion was unique). Carini followed ( couldn't rate this one because of some internet trouble that occurred). The Wedge > Light. Light was great followed by a ripping David Bowie and then Silent in the Morning. Out of nowhere Meatstick hit and the lyrics when Japanese which was great to hear again. Quinn the Eskimo followed ending the set, so it seemed. YEM closed the set and left us awe struck. I found this set to be rather exciting and musical from all angles of Phish shows this had a little of everything. The Encore was Sanity!!!! place, message boards on .net went insane. This was the 5th Junta song played this evening, so a rare treat for all phans. Followed up by Bold as Love (very good show, worth the download). 4-5
