Review by pmc2kd

pmc2kd Had a chance to listen to this show from the couch.

I'm usually a bit harsh on some of the shows of this era - but I really enjoyed this one!

Set I had some nice jamming in No Men, Steam (they could have stretched that ending even more!) and WotC. Great bus tours with Digs stole Destiny and Beauty of my Dreams. I also thought the jam at the end of Home was excellent and surprising!

Set II opened with Crimes of the mind?! Crazy

Golden age was sublime - what a jam! It's one of those jams that literally makes you smile bigger and bigger with each passing segment. Best of all time version (I love Hampton 13 as well though)

Simple > light had plenty of additional and capable jamming

20 years later played a perfect foil as reflective and dark when paired with Blaze On's devil may care optimism.

Coil was the perfect final piece.

Bouncin, bold as love was also a nice empire pairing.

Overall this was a really enjoyable show that found a great way to mix old and no material throughout. Second set seems to capture the era's positivity really nicely with two homages to earlier times bookending a set that reminds us we are in a golden age where things simply get more and more bright and when we reflect on 20(now 30) years of history, all we really need to do is Blaze On and enjoy :)

4/5!
