Review by fhqwhgads

fhqwhgads The Setlist Team has definitely got it right that The Moma Dance is a Recommended Jam. It's the big story of the first set, except perhaps the very satisfying tension-and-release peak of the Wolfman's Brother that precedes the set-closing Possum. Piper kind of goes into ambient passages that are very palpable but may not have that much replay value, but Weekapaug Groove tends towards an high-energy sustain that carries over through to the end of the set into a Harry Hood that has a lot of 2.0-typical jamming, namely the double-stopped kind of Trey playing that integrates so well with Page's and the rhythm section's. I tend to want to find a lot to love in any era of Phish, trying to ignore whatsoever "flaws" there may be in favor of the heights, and though I would rate the previous show more highly due if only to depth of jamming, this is a great show... one that would be oh so welcome now in the 3.0 era, if only people had the diligence to listen to the forest for the trees.
