Review by SlavePhan

SlavePhan THE GOOD: This show features some absolutely frenetic and firey segments which build upon the tour's trend of increasing the speed and intensity of nearly every song. In particular, a lot of the improvisation in this show focuses around DEG-like moments which yield chaotic and intense yet brief jams (e.g. Stash, Tweezer, and Bowie). Trey's work is phenomenal throughout the show - check out Chalkdust (amazing) and Reba (!!!) for spotlights. The result is a show of break-neck type-I songs and shorter yet speedy explosive jams; it's a great combination that really works - this show is wonderful. Stash, Chalkdust, Reba, and Bowie are all worth repeated play.

THE BAD: Probably the worst part about this show is just that the soundboard does not circulate!

ETC: Look for Dave's Energy Guide teases in Stash (8:10) and Bowie (8:25). I Didn't Know was dedicated to the Blokes and there's a reference to the "ancient sounds of England". Tweezer contains inaudible and eerie Trey whispering (a la 12/29/94 Bowie) as well as a heavy-metal jam. Listen to Trey describe Poor Heart as "Vermont Grass" as well as an I Dream of Jeannie tease by Page in Fluffhead (8:23).
