Review by CentralScrutinizer

CentralScrutinizer First set was a snoozefest. I thought it blew the big Meatstick. Second set had some nice moments. Light was pretty good. Didn't hit the levels of some other Lights but they tried to get out there and that's always nice and try ventilation arrived at se excitement towards the end. Overall I give this show a B or B+. Far from the best hour of phish ever or the best jam ever in Light. I love the phish cheerleaders though and glad they have their Pom poms wildly waving in hyperbole. And for the "no gamehenge yet" theory, how much do they play lizards, tela and col forbin? So you're saying they haven't played ACDC bag or Wilson yet and that means gamehenge is coming? You wish. It would have been cool to freak everybody out last night by starting to spell out gamehenge. Golgi axilla maze opener and everybody would have flipped out. But alas, no jokes or clues last night. It would be cool but I just don't see it happening tonight. Twist, piper, ghost, DWD, crosseyed or RnR. That's what I see. More than half the second sets this year have started with the same 4 songs, DwD, crosseyed, RnR and golden age. Too formulaic and predictable for me. Reminds me of 1994 when 2001 started way too many second sets only that was better because 2001 was fairly new to them and is arguably the best set opener there is. 2012 has been pretty good. Not the level of 2010, 1998 or 92-95, but very good and a million times better than 2011. Hopefully new years run will be better than last years flop. And hope tonight is better than last night which had a nice Light and a cool Mikes Groove and let the always fun Boogie bass beast loose in Denver. But little else worth writing home about.
