Review by fluffhead108

fluffhead108 We've been pretty spoiled in these last couple weeks, and I think a large number of people might have expected Reading to be forgotten quickly as the tour went on to AC. Nope. Set II here is one of the finest of the year, right up there with Hampton3 and the best of summer.

The Twenty Years Later jam is a revelation. Perfectly in line with the flavor of the song, but fresh, experimental, and just downright dance sexy. This is one of the finest jams of the year, no question. It's the highlight of the night for me, and the first thing I urge anyone to listen to.

Then check out: Disease (lovely jam with a fantastic peak at the end--the last few minutes are bonkers) and YEM (funky and loose) and Piper (Page. Page. Page.)

It's hard to contextualize things as they happen, and it's even harder to do so with a band that's been touring relentlessly for 25 of the last 30 years, dropping an absurd number of All World shows. But Fall 2013 is *something*, guys. It just is. We're all watching something happen, and boy is it a good time.
