Review by SplitOpenAndMule

SplitOpenAndMule While there are flubs, especially in TMWSIY, I think this is an above-average show for the time. I think '97-'98 Trey would throw a beer can at anyone who complains about the flubs and say that the energy of this show was great (see Bittersweet Motel). Reba, Antelope, Bag, Suzy, Melt, are all pretty great versions for this era. Trey is especially on fire throughout the second set, even in In A Hole. If he had to sacrifice some of the composed sections to get there (although he still nails most of 'em), I forgive him for it. The show is on the looser side, but that lends itself to being very fun and energized, in this listener's humble opinion.

Also of note, in this show and a few prior, Trey has been playing around with slowing down the written melody of the end of the jam section of Divided Sky while the band plays at normal tempo, and I think it's a pretty neat effect.
