Review by fluffhead108

fluffhead108 This is certainly a solid show, firmly in the middle of the 2013 pack. No doubt many are disappointed that the boys didn't come out and shoot MSG into the stratosphere (and of course that would have been lovely) but there's a lot to like here.

The first set Wolfman's is nasty. Reminds me a bit of the iconic 12/28/12 version, mixed the Tyrannosaurus Tweezer from Super Ball. Definitely the first set highlight for me. The next step in Monica's evolution is also lovely to hear. This version is a lot different than the original: faster, electric, and with a tiny jam. Reminds me of Sparkle and Bouncin' mashed together. That will make some people scream in terror, but I mean it in a good way.

Set 2 doesn't stand with the 2013 behemoths, but immediately check out the Best Ever version of Steam. This is straight goods. Maybe some will prefer the SPAC'13 version, but those people are what we call "wrong" ;)

The second-ever Waiting All Night is solid, but inferior to the 10/31 (which I love). Also, an important note to the guys: don't double up Silent and Waiting. One or the other. When played back-to-back, you can almost hear thousands of people having their 4th Quarter squashed.
