Review by n00b100

n00b100 The first set's nicely constructed, although nothing particularly stands out, so we can move on from that quickly. The second set takes something of a weird turn after BOAF (which sounded awkward coming out of the end of Ghost - I get "take 'em down then build 'em up", but BOAF's intro is as abrupt as Light's is) and doesn't quite recover, although the groove they lock into in Tweezer is powerful and certainly worth hearing, as is the peekaboo segue into Julius, and @thedeviousgelatin covered Suzy.

The main draw here, though, is CDT -> Ghost (that is a ->, .net, just as much as Tweezer -> Julius is), with the former exploring some darker space (kinda like Randall's, but with a minor key instead) and then sliding into a melodic, mellow groove before puddling to a spacey close and ever so gently inching its way into Ghost. And the Ghost ticks the last box for Ghosts in 2014 (Chicago got "massive noise demon" and MPP got "headbanging party") with a utterly gorgeous jam thanks to Page taking over and steering the band into more optimistic waters. Was this enough to make the show a classic? Nah. Is the segment absolutely worth hearing? For sure.

By the way, I think @phish30sux's comments are extremely valuable, because no matter how annoyed you get when people fluff 3.0 (myself included, for sure), just remember that the alternative - pissy, entitled jaded vet whining - is ONE MILLION TIMES WORSE.
