brains481 Going to keep this fairly short, as I'm writing this on a crap phone.

SET I: Overall, the Boys have come back solid as shit. Their vocals and respective chops/rigs sound fantastic. Set I is fairly uneventful, except for a great and knotty Stash; classic tension and release with great Trey/Page interplay.

SET II: Wolfman's rocks. The peak is fairly pedestrian, but the playing that precedes it is stellar, especially on Trey's front. Golden Age got dreamy fast, with Fish laying down a hypnotic beat while Page manned the CS-80.

The playing slowly turned more rhythmic and Mike developed it by setting up a Sand-like groove. Trey began slowly soloing, and Page moved over to the Organ, beautifully setting him up for a peak, which he reached and then ->’d into Simple.

Martian Monster was completely turned on it's head from what it was (a three minute set one staple that went nowhere and did nothing), turning it into a funk-metal monster. After Trey vocalized the “Your Trip is Short” line in a Tweeprise like manner, they properly went into Reprise, a great WTF moment. GTBT finished off the show.

Overall, a solid show.

3.5 - 4/5
