Review by waxbanks

waxbanks The weaker of the two IT shows, but that's praising with faint damnation. Best Chalkdust in ages (and none since have been better), a gigantic celebratory Ghost, and a definitive 46 Days (40 minutes long!) that contains some of the grisliest post-hiatus Phish. The Tower jam took something out of the band, I think, but those three tracks (particularly the bone-bleaching third set opener) render such complaints irrelevant. No, Phish haven't produced another ambient jam with the delicate beauty of 6/14/00, but in Summer '03 they were doing amazing things with arhythmic space, and this was the show where the wave broke upon the shore.


Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
