Review by the_florist

the_florist This is my first review, so it's fitting that I write about the first full Phish show that I heard. This show has been, and probably always will be, my favorite show. There is such a high level of energy in each song, and combined with the tight, unified playing, the result is a complete show from top to bottom.

I'm not going to go through every song and make hackneyed comments about how well each one was played. Listen for yourself, and what you hear will far surpass any words that I can use to describe these two sets from Red Rocks. Believe me, you won't be sorry.

A few notes:

-The YEM is a multifaceted monster.

-The Maze and the Antelope caused the rock structures around the venue to collapse.*

-The Squirming Coil is why we love Page.

-The Contact gets funky. It's awesome.

That is all.
