Down with Disease

, comment by n00b100
n00b100 I still maintain that MSG's version is better, but it's better than I originally made it out to be - and what I originally made it out to be was a perfectly fine jam with 5 minutes of absolutely blissful hose at the end. The movement from minor-key darkness towards the major-key optimism that leads into That Five Minutes is quite nice, enough so that it justifies you listening to the whole jam instead of the part what everyone likes. A version this good is certainly worth noting, that is for sure.

Now who do I need to call about getting the green treatment for 12/29/13?

lumpblockclod The whole version is quite good, especially beginning at 10:30 or so. But it's obviously the last 5 minutes that make this a legendary version. They're unfathomably good... among the best 5 minute stretches of any year.

CameToPlay Have listened to this one a bunch and did again today. I pretty much have the same opinion every time. The hose at the end is transcendent. Not just Trey, but the whole band. The rest of the jam is "ok". So does the end jam carry the whole song? I'd say yes. Either way, you can always just skip ahead to the 16:00 mark, and listen to 12/29 in totality since it is a better version....imo.
