SkyTrainWand The Mike's Song from this show is to be totally honest, an incredible jam. Extremely moody, very dark, sinister, with some strange chord choices by Page to make it even more interesting and Trey doing what Trey does best... building and exploding. The last 5 minutes or so of Mike's Song are more or less the polar opposite of everything Phish does before it; there's a drop into a major key and a calming wave of music ensues. Absolutely beautiful stuff. Really not a bad 2nd set here, pretty decent Suzy, Maze, I've never liked Horse > Silent but if I was at this show all the way in Italy I wouldn't have complained. GTBT closer is always a rager!

4/5 stars. I want to give it 3.8 but decimals aren't possible w/ this system
