Review by thedeviousgelatin

thedeviousgelatin Just gave the whole show a run through and I can understand why people might have mixed feelings.

On the one hand, there were definitely a lot of miscues (see Heavy Things, Stealing Time, BOAF, Suzy). Especially weird given that these are hardly the most precision-demanding Phish songs.

That said, I would suggest that these miscues were actually dealt with really well by the band, who didn't seem to get too hung up on them (as far as I could tell from listening to the audio via the LP app all the way over here in the UK). Perhaps Trey's remarks regarding missing changes vs energy in Bittersweet Motel would apply here. To my ears, last night witnessed some truly great Phish music.

In the 1st set, the Stash is fiery. Limb x Limb and Waiting All Night both very well executed. And Wombat was really, really nice (NB: I love Wombat).

2nd set CDT > Ghost is very nice. And while I this Tweezer could have been allowed a bit more time to roam the freezer, I thought the transition into Julius was novel and very well executed. Even the Suzy, with its off-kilter start (noted by Fish), saw Trey applying some slick new licks, which Page subsequently echoes.

Hardly a legendary show, but far from a bad one. While I might not throw the whole show on in the future, there are definitely songs I will be listening to again.

I might even give it another spin now...
