n00b100 Beneath a Sea of Stars Part 1 is almost certainly going to be a litmus test jam going forward - people dislike the song, and people will dislike the gnarled and *weird* 1994-invoking jam that comes from it, and that's totally fine. If this was a one-off, that's totally fine, too. If it isn't.......................well, then we'd better fasten our seat belts, because we're in for a bumpy ride. I'm talking a Jurassic Park level bumpy ride. And that's a good thing, I think.

A few other notes:
1. Thank goodness Energy returned. I'd been pining for it to reenter the rotation since it almost went stratospheric on 8/4/13 (IMO, the Jim that came afterwards was the mea culpa for Energy collapsing, the victim of Fish's kit needing repairs if my ever-faulty memory serves), and not only did it come back strong, but with a dope segue into Paug to boot. Not too shabby.
2. Darn good stuff all throughout both sets. The segues into Wider and Undermind were incredibly slick, so much so with Wider that I didn't even realize it was a new song.
3. Ghost -> Birds threw a lot at the wall and enough of it stuck (plus they were clearly enjoying themselves with the Paug callback) that it's worth hearing again. The whole show is, but you know what I mean.

Big thumbs up from this guy. Real interested to see whether the Beneath a Sea of Stars jam was a one-off or a harbinger.
