Review by art_vandelay

art_vandelay being that this was my first phish show post-hiatus, i was just happy to be there & pretty much left my critic's hat at the door. having listened to the show after the fact, i can say that the boys played with focus & discipline, and rarely a bum note was heard. my only gripe is that while any given jam was solid, often it would seemingly end abruptly instead of naturally. so if you're looking for something from the days of '97, you won't find it here....

one highlight cannot be ignored 'tho, and that was a nasty "carini" which effortlessly segued into "fuck your face", which of course sent the diehards into a frenzy. i've heard a couple other FYFs, but none match the version heard this night....it was like the song was MEANT to morph out of "carini", it was so perfect.

abrupt jam endings notwithstanding, it was still a solid performance worth seeking out, with many highlights sprinkled throughout....
