TheEmu Quite a few interesting things in this show, including a good, ripping Sloth and Divided Sky, an Alumni Blues with kind of a Camel Walk feel to it, a groovy Whipping Post and an excellent Bowie. The highlight for me, though, was Sanity. Holy Sanitydust Torture! I had no idea Sanity ever sounded so different! I suppose that shouldn't come as a surprise, given the Dude of Life-I Don't Care connection, but I really enjoyed this version, and thought it was great to hear Sanity with an actual jam on it. Great stuff, I'm gonna have to go 4 stars for this.
