Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw A "Decent" show.

Not too much to write home about regarding the first set. The only exception being a very pretty version of Frankie Says. Even Maze and Reba are pretty standard mediocre versions.

As usual the jam out of DWD is an intense shredfest, It goes into a distorted type of space before triumphantly returning back into DWD proper. Piper has a great explosive peak. Caspian is the star of the show. The intro is absolutely gorgeous and the song itself is also very well played, and on top of it the outro is also gorgeous. For those who hate Caspian in the 2nd set you should hear this and see if you still feel that way. Coil has a psychedelic ambient outro instead of just piano. Slave unfortunately is very anticlimactic.

A Possum encore is always great, but this version is absolute insanity. It's pulsing and intense and Trey just goes off.

Overall some great peaks but a fairly straightforward show.
