Review by Midcoaster

Midcoaster The spontaneous space clapping (Forbin refers to) seems to stem from the audience anticipating a DWD kicking in. Many were accustomed to that mini-space DWD opener, so. . . . It also could be that people were anticipating 2001 a wee bit later. I am a headphone jam type of guy so that I love these interludes. However, previous to the Third Stone from the Sun-like WTU intro, I would have had to run away from the girl who (on my recording) is not chatting with her neighbor but drunkenly YELLING at said interlocutor during the sweetest of spacey spaces (this coming from Spacely Sprocket, pholks). OK, I get it, space is not for everyone. Slobbering throat thrashing non-sequiturs, though, rarely please anyone!

This show kicks butt in my spaced-out opinion. What can I say? 06/14/2000 is, to me, a masterpiece. This is like it's niece or nephew in a more muscular way.
