Review by TwiceBitten

TwiceBitten I remember being frustrated by this show, but listening back on tape, it's not as bad as I thought. The first set was mostly the boys going through the motions. Overall, it seemed like the peaks the band had reached by the end of the summer were not to be present any place during this 4 night winter run. The movie show during set break, however, was absolutely fantastic and was highlight of the evening. Sure, it's not on the tapes and some might criticize me for saying so, but anyone who was there would say the same thing. The band was definitely more energized during the second set and the Rock 'n' Roll through Frankenstein was very worthy music, but still not as good as I had expected, having seen 2/28 and IT already that year. All of these dreams through Cities felt out of place, but the Maze was really strong. It was so cold in Boston this night. I remember the sweat freezing to my skin after leaving the Fleet Center and trying to find the car to drive back to Amherst.

side note:There's a nearly complete video of the whole show up on youtube
