Review by benevolution

benevolution I finally gave this show a listen for the first time yesterday. I can't remember ever hearing a show where the first set was better than the second. Great playing and no complaints here.

But the second set...
In spite of what others have said, I found the segue into Golden Age extremely forced and unnatural, led to an extremely downtempo and poorly played version of an already so-so song, and the fact that none of the band members seemed to make any attempt to get it up to proper speed at any point spoke volumes. It really killed the flow for me. I actually skipped to the next song, which I don't think I have ever done before. The rest of the set was adequate but I can't get over that deplorable Golden Age. Not trying to poop on anyone's parade but I just don't understand how anyone can hear it and think it was a good segue, let alone a great one.
