fhqwhgads The first three songs of the first set are arguably negligible for a longtime phan... a well-versed one who has probably heard those songs rendered better before (though Bill Bailey, Won't You Please Come Home? is always good value.) Waves takes the first extended turn for the night, and it's thoroughly satisfying. Drowned is the next big jam, and though it sounds very "in the mold" of 2.0 as a whole, it has a patient build that rewards careful listening. Seven Below to open the second set is much along the same lines, and Ghost takes a Ghosty turn, but Twist is probably "the" highlight of the night. I don't know how many phans currently active really "get" 2.0, but this Twist is a good encapsulation of what it was all about. Personally, I sat 2.0 out, with the exception of listening to a few shows post facto or watching setlists roll in on PhantasyTour, but this is still a great show for the era and for any era of Phish, and I would be disappointed if phans just overlooked these years for whatever reason.
