conradjohansen Introductions > IDK to open is fun and then a raging high energy YEM really gets things going. Next we take a trip into Gamehendge. McGrupp is McGrupp and Lizards is Lizards but Divided is really well played. Antelope is strong and Terrapin is it's usual silly self. Fun Possum to close this one out.

4/5

TheEmu Sound quality on this is pretty terrible, and almost all of YEM is cut off. There's some slop in Lizards and D. Sky, but Divided comes back to rage decently in the jam section. The Antelope actually sounds pretty fierce to me, and the Possum is also pretty good. I also want to give some props to Trey for not getting to fazed by dopes shouting "Play a song!" while he's talking about Gamehendge. Probably this should be a little below average, given the massive YEM cut and crappy sound, but I did enjoy the 'Lope, Possum, and even Divided, so I'll go with three stars.
