Review by brains481

brains481 Solid Wolfman's with classic peaking action. Fuego has an utterly beautiful bliss-y jam (showcasing Trey's honed tone as of late; perfectly balanced IMO) with great Trey/Page interplay, gradually morphing into a heavy as hell and rocking wall of sound with Trey soloing his ass off behind layers of delay and echo, followed by a bit of noodling before dropping into bliss territory yet again and >’ing into Caspian.

Seven Below's jam was also very good. All four just killed it, from Page providing the spacey atmosphere, to Mike keeping it melodic on the down low, from Trey feeling his way through the beautiful tapestry the others painted for him, to Fish providing a steady beat and innovating just enough to keep things rolling through the psychedelic storm, which went on unabated until Trey returned to the Seven Below theme and ended it. It felt like a bit of a borderline ripcord, but still, it's an overall fantastic jam, and a fantastic show.

OVERALL: A very good show that would rank among the best of 2016, and will surely rank among the best of 2017. All three jams I mentioned are all top-shelf shit that I consider prime phucking Phish.

RATING: 4 - 4.5/5

Also, a quick observation:

Mike is mixed perfectly from what I can hear for once; just a little quieter than the NYE run. Keep it up Atschiller!
