Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw This show is an all timer from any era. Don't let the year fool you.

Reba for sure sets the tone as an extremely bizarre set 1 opener. It's fairly straightforward, but it's Reba! The Jim that proceeds is also fairly straight forward. Wolfman gets really funky and is strong for a compact jam. Walls of the Cave is an all time version that is peaky as hell as well as blissfully experimental. Bowie is also very strong.

SITHOS kicks things off and goes off into the unknown quickly. Mike and Trey link up and it drifts into heavy bliss then pulses and builds with heavy tension. I won't go on to long about Piper, but it is likely the very best Piper EVER played. It starts with a nice Mike led groove and as trey picks around it gradually levitates to a different world. And then to so many peaks within a peak that it is utterly outrages. The segue into Jibboo is near buttery perfection. Limb By Limb is also a top shelf version just absolutely beautiful. Cavern is well cavern?

Wading is always a great encore choice and is well played.

What makes this show so perfect? The Setlist? Epic Jams? Amazing Segues? Great playing?

All of the above.
