kipmat Currently the Phish show from 2009 with the highest rating on .net, and I must agree with that assessment. I haven't listened to every show from 2009 *yet*, but this is certainly the strongest start-to-finish outing by the boys up to this point. Indeed, it wouldn't be until Fall 2013 that Phish managed to play shows this strong on a nightly basis.

One jam that I would like to highlight is the mid-2nd-set Slave. The song doesn't reach the peaks in 3.0 that it did in the A Live One era, but this one comes closer than most. And though I confess I'm tired of the joke in Icculus, I admit Trey is pretty funny in this version :)

Tight and rocking, goofy yet sentimental, - this show is just a great big smile. I would absolutely recommend it as a listening "warm-up" for your ears as you anticipate the start of the tour!
