Pinhead_Larry I also vote for "very very good." This Tweezer starts out strong and ends just as strong. Sure it can be repetitive, but it is well worth it to reach the ending climax. Just an aside, it feels as if there's a bit of a "second jam" on this one as soon as Page's delicate synth keys are hit around the 16 or 17 minute mark.

The jam could have ended there and people would still be pleased, but I'm glad the jam stretched out as long as it did. The delicate electronic ambiance gives way to a blistering Trey-led jam and a delicate outro jam, and the band is in full force. There's just something so magical about Japan.

Parts during the middle before the buildup remind me of the Cypress Tweezer a little bit.

n00b100 Amusing first comment aside, I think the reason for the jam chart description is that there's *so* much going on here, from lowkey ambient loop-land jamming to hazy Trey-leading hose to weird spaciness (Page playing notes that sound like water droplets, in a neat effect) to a warm and relaxing shuffle that Fish pushes forward to something not unlike the peak in Slave to a roaring heavy rock-out finale. It's the '94 channel-surfing aesthetic mixed with the late-90s ambient style, and it's one hell of a jam.

The__Van Ah yes the "uhhhhhhhm" Tweezer. Known far and wide as being either good or bad.
