Review by Older_Than_You

Older_Than_You My wife and I have been seeing Phish together since 1996, most of our 18 shows have been at Alpine. Couldn't make the 2009 shows so we were happy to be back in the Land of Cheese again after our own 6 year Phish hiatus.

Set I Highlights:
Tube Opener, good choice.
Suzy got the crowd going
Fuck Your Face - holy shit an oldie!
Back on the Train - got people dancing
Gumbo > Antelope - was great ending!

Set II:
Sloth - Great opener, love this song
DWD - Very exploratory jamming, would go somewhere, then take a left turn, then a right. It was fun to hear them try and find direction - and when they did...
What's the Use? - Wow! Beautiful, soaring guitar. Absolutely amazing.
SOAMule - Awesome! Great long version, you can tell they love playing it too.
Mike's - This version didn't thrill me
Dirt - Seriously? After Mike's?
Sneakin Sally - Ok, I forgive you for Dirt
Weekapaug - Nice wrap up, figured it was the closer, but no...
Bug - Great version, another favorite song of mine in concert.

Encore: Quinn - Great cover, decent encore - could have used one more Phish standard, but we did have another night to go.

Overall, set II was towards the top for me on sets I've seen.
