TheEmu You absolutely have to love the excellent Slave, Peaches, YEM that starts this recording. The YEM totally rages! Fluff gets a little mangled, but contains references to "Betty Davis Eyes" and the Waltons, and the jam is rip-tastic. Interesting AC/DC Bag with a nice > into Lizards, although the Lizards is fairly rough. Halley's is amusingly awful from a lyrical perspective, but there's actually a short but very cool jam and great -> into a cool Wilson. Very nice! Then it's time for the real treat: A Ya Mar that segues straight into a 20 minute reggae jam with Jah Roy! I loved the reggae jam, it was a lot of fun. There are a couple of nice moments in the rest of the recording, including a nice vocal jam in Sneakin' Sally and quite the interesting 16 minute Bowie excursion, as well as Possum played with a shuffle tempo. I will say, though, that after hearing Tela in "Shadow of Wilson's Castle" style, I can see that Time Turns Elastic is not the first time Trey's put something together that sounds forced and awkward to my ears. Nevertheless, I totally enjoyed this show. I'm going to go 4 stars, even though I could probably argue myself into 5, it was that enjoyable. To quote Jah Roy, "Phish nice, Phish nice!"
