Review by EducateFright

EducateFright For phans who love Talking Heads - and I am one of them - this is a dream come true, and words almost fail to describe how awesome this is. I keep coming back to this show again and again.

I mainly want to urge you not to overlook Listening Wind and The Overload, the two tracks that conclude Remain In Light. They are terribly bleak and ploddingly slow... quite the end a funked up and angular new wave album! Phish gives them an absolutely stunning reading. The Overload in particular is a total mindfuck, and the ending will surely surprise you.

I'd love it if they busted out The Overload... Imagine if they defiled our minds by dropping it in the encore slot... Or Mike's -> Frankie Says -> The Overload -> Mike's... You really never do know what they're going to play next... Maybe they'll cover I Zimbra some day!

Check out the videos of this performance on YouTube.
