Bob_Loblaw This is without a doubt one of my favorite 99' shows. It is such an incredibly strong and consistent show.

Jim starts things off on a very strong note, it's just perfection every note Trey hits is just perfection. Free is also a very strong version with Mike really laying down something fierce in the mid section. Stash does exactly what it needs to and the Can't Turn You Loose jam was really a fantastic way to peak at the end. Theme From The Bottom is one of the best versions I have ever heard with such great peaks and inspired playing on Trey's part.

Now down to the business. This 2001 has a very long intro that sounds something to the effect of Aliens landing. It is just experimental as hell. But unlike a lot of the experiments thrown down this has a high level of fluidity to it, Mike once again laying it down. Just an all time version. This goes into DWD which has an insane solo from Trey followed by shredding madness for a while. Billy Breathes is solid with a much more delicate solo then your average version. Then we have the mini Mike's Groove fest at the end. Mike's starts off especially strong and quickly flies into catapult which then goes right smack into a Mike's second jam perfectly. And back into Kung weirdness back to Mike's. I didn't know is very random in the mix but is an added treat. And Weekapaug just slays to cap off an amazing set.

Cities Encore? Are you F***ing kidding me???

For sure an essential show for anyone checking out 99'.
