Review by dr32timmymeat

dr32timmymeat This show is coming off six straight 4.2-or-higher rated shows, and that's not even including the storied 12-1 show in Hershey. Perhaps the climaxes weren't as high -- no brilliant Tweezer > Timber > Tweezer as with the previous show -- but all in all this show is another absolute gem from December 95. What. A. Month.

This is a pretty remarkable setlist. Harry Hood 2nd and Maze 4th.... those are both heavy hitters that you would expect to see in more prominent spots.

It's also great that the boys get the Fish-singing shenanigans out of the way early instead of letting the show end with that, as was too often the case back in '95.

2001 being used as a late-second-set jam vehicle is also noteworthy.

The second set is essentially a full set segue with some superfluity tacked on to the end. As a drummer, I couldn't help but notice that Fish is pretty look at a few points during the composed, pre-jam section of It's Ice, but not nearly enough to taint this bad-a** show.
