Review by Laudanum

Laudanum I've never felt compelled to write a review on this site, especially on a show I didn't attend. Especially on just one section of one jam. One freaking section.

But what happens in this Disease from 18:54 to 21:57 compels me. Manteca-flavored jams have been a staple of 3.0 (Lighteca et al.), and I've heard some opine that it's a crutch. I prefer to think of it as a touchstone: a certain vibe from 1.0 that they've decided to keep and be influenced by. A pillar of the 3.0 sound, as it were.

This is the pinnacle of that, and is so damn good that it manages to be self-referential in a layer of ways while somehow remaining in the moment. As someone who was blown away by Manteca at 10/30/98, I can say for certain that this is just as exciting. If I could attend any 3.0 moment that I missed, it'd be this one.

Hot damn.
