Review by waxbanks

waxbanks There's nothing here that didn't get a much stronger reading by mid-August, with the exception of Seven Below (which received canonical treatment in Albany in late November) and Hood (which topped out at F8). That said, this was an uplifting show: Fluffhead, Jibboo, GBOTT, and Caspian are fine versions, while Taste(!), Seven Below(!!), and Hood(!) are tremendous. This is undeniably a June '09 Phish show, which means well-played powerful music to put a smile on your face but no large-scale 'Type II' jams to be found - like a 21st-century version of early 1993, with 16 extra years of melodic and empathetic development. Absolutely wonderful and inessential.
