Review by BrandoMcfluffsocks

BrandoMcfluffsocks Like what noob said, if this isn't one of the best shows ever, I don't know what is. This show is on par with Big Cypress, Great Went N2, 12/31/93, and many more shows of that caliber. Unlike most shows, there wasn't a single time where I was disappointed by their song choice, and even when their vocals were rough (I mean they are 50 now) they were still enjoyable. Then again, not many of us see phish for the vocals because, we all know that's not what phish is really about.

The D-sky was the perfect opener and really set a good mood for the rest of the night. The setlist doesn't really convey how great the first set was, because divided sky was the only song that really had a significant jam, but do not be fueled, this set is A1 Fire (nice pun I know...). This is one of those sets where you can really tell they are playing for solely themselves and aren't forcing things. In my opinion I think this set is just as good, if not better than 8/17/97 set 1. Highlights: dsky and antelope

I'm not really going to explain set 2 because an explanation simply won't do it justice. Just listen to it please.

The third set is slightly weaker than the second set, but not by that much. Comparing these would be like comparing Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder.And similar to the second set, just listen to the drive in jam, it's a must. I really like how they didn't change their formula and basically did the same thing as the tower jam, ambient jam, storage jam, they just did a really good job at it. If you are expecting a new "gimmick", it's not here. The drive in jam is just a really good piece of music.
