Review by gphishmon

gphishmon I can't say enough about the Bowie. A multipart masterpiece of a jam -- the dark, brooding buildup that explodes, then settles eventually into a key-changed quiet, peaceful, trance jam, then the key changes again as they work the energy back up into a very fast, kind of funky, danceable jam, and finally that resolves to the closing theme played at a super frenetic pace.

Possum is another highlight of this show. 14+ min of Possum means the tension gets built up so gradually, and so high, that it almost hurts.

Foam is always great to hear, and something that separates Phish from other jam bands is their ability to jam over very complex chord progressions, bebop style. Lizards is similar but adds one of the most dramatic, elegaic, and beautiful melodies I've ever heard, in any style of music, including classical music, for the ending. Slave provides another powerful jam for the closer.

All in all an A+ show for one of my all-time favorite bands in one of their best years.
