Review by fhqwhgads

fhqwhgads Reba is an interesting opener (maybe last opened a show on 7/6/00 Toronto?) and ekes along beautifully as Rebas are wont to do. Runaway Jim sustains the energy, but the next big song, Scents and Subtle Sounds, isn't that long, and doesn't compare so much to the Walls of the Cave that stretches 20 minutes and segues into David Bowie. Walls of the Cave boasts a Mike-led ambient jam that is very satisfying. In the second set, A Song I Heard the Ocean Sing approaches 20 minutes, but just kind of treads the typical 2.0 water. The Piper to follow, however, features a long segment of patient improvisation approaching hose levels, especially towards the end when Trey really lets loose. The segue into Gotta Jibboo is also notable. Limb By Limb keeps up the energy > Cavern, and then there's a poignant "2.0" encore of Wading in the Velvet Sea. This is really a representative show of Phish 2.0, if such a claim is tenable, in that it displays some of the characteristic jamming of the time period, and a few of the jams are given quite enough room to breathe.
