Review by aybesea

aybesea Okay, so here I am, on the heels of listening to the soundboard of last night to make certain that what I think is true, is actually true. And... it is... this show is the real deal.

The first set is tight and consistent. It has a super opening trio in Faulty/Moma/Wedge, where they get to the fringes of 1st set goodness. Ya Mar & Martian are rock solid as well. I won't bitch about the rest... they are standard 1st set fare. As I hit halftime, I was thinking a good solid 3.5-4.0 show.

Out of the gate I get the familiar/unfamiliar sound of Corona, and let me say that I am very impressed. It's infectious and prone to grooving, so... let's see more. But then...

It wasn't Simple, it wasn't a good Simple, it wasn't even a great Simple... it was a Simple for the ages! This thing is a goddamned monster!!! If you haven't listened yet, do not pass go... do not collect $200!

Fuck, after that, quite honestly, anything would be fine. But the rest of the show was just as solid. Light... check! S3... double check! Cities... check! These were solid wonderful set 2 worthy versions. Then a huge Slave taboot! Loving Cup was just pure icing.

Folks, this is a serious show. Very, very nice!

fhqwhgads This is a great show! You probably already know about the CHImple, but The Moma Dance > The Wedge in the first set had some, as the young'uns say, "extra mustard," too. In fact, I can't remember the last Moma I enjoyed that much that didn't jam Type II. The rest of the first set was well played, but kind of has to take a backseat to Simple, in retrospect (maybe the entire second set.) Corona makes its Phish debut, nice tune, into Simple, which takes on epic proportions. They're clearly playing around with a segue into Timber for several minutes during the Simple, but then they take it into a "bliss jam" type of direction, landing in Winterqueen. It's great to see legit segues from Light -> Scents and Subtle Sounds -> Cities. When I woke up this morning (tacky and kif), and looked at the setlist but not the track times, I didn't expect the Simple to be the biggest jam... I thought it'd be one of those segue-filled second sets that have several 10-or-so-minute jams. The Scents is really good, though, but it doesn't get as experimental or exploratory as the Simple, in my opinion. Slave to the Traffic Light to close the set and Loving Cup encore. I have to rate this one 4 out of 5 stars--firmly above average, for 3.0--but I hope your takeway (since you're probably already all about the Simple) is to take a closer look at the first set, especially the Moma > Wedge. You may notice they take a sort-of flub in Moma and make something great out of it. That's what I've been told is the essence of true creativity. PHISH!

Review by umuckurlife

umuckurlife First set was pretty fun. Second set was great. Everyone needs to listen to the Simple, obviously. I'm here to simply say I believe that this S&SS deserves a nod in the "Noteworthy Jams" section. It was, of course, outshined by the simple, but it deserves some love on the jam chart. The segue into Cities was just about perfect as well.

brb2323 Outstanding second set! A Corona debut for Phish, and then Simple, which was stellar. It explored all different kinds of musical landscapes and territories. The word epic is sometimes overused but in this case I think not. Epic Simple jam! The 27 minute+ Simple segued beautifully into Winterqueen which melded into Light. Light was shorter but still sweet as it segued seamlessly into Scents and Subtle Sounds. Another amazing exploration of another beautiful song. Their segues were very smooth tonight as we got another one into Cities, which the crowd loved. Then an always welcome Slave as the bookend to an epic set! Loving Cup encore and everyone was elated!

10mileride Excellent show front start to finish. Obviously we all know about the Simple. It was outstanding. Being there live was so amazing. But I really feel like the SASS needs to be recognized. It should most definitely be on the jam chart....way more so than Winterqueen.
Please re-listen and consider adding it! It's a very special jam!
