Review by themayor

themayor Hello all, I am a new phan as of a year ago. The last few weeks I have really been getting HEAVILY into Phish. But for the past year I have on and off been enjoying their shows. But I keep a journey spreadsheet of all the shows I've listened to. I am journeying through the Baker's Dozen. N7 has arrived. I am eager to hear it.
We opened with a Llama that was introduced with a parody on a speech that was made over the PA at Woodstock about brown acid, except acid was changed to donuts because of the theme. The song ripped.

And then we went into Wilson which went really deep and weird really early. Before finally going back into the stings and chanting. It had really ethereal jamming but not too long.

STFTFP was unfamiliar to me, but I liked the jam on it. It was 8 minutes long, and I liked the song.

Ya Mar was kind of bubbly and experimental, but it was what it was. It was nothing too special. I enjoyed it though.

Tela was quite nice actually. Pretty jam.

These tracks with the Disney narration always weird me out so much, but maybe I should stop being high when I listen to them. Anyway, the jamming is great, but the narration parts are wack to me.

I liked The LIne it had a nice jam on it. And the composed part was really good, I think that song is really good 3.0 music.

Water in the Sky goes into a good synthy jam and then into a piano section.

Vultures is an awesome tune that has a real old school prog rock feel.

Horn has such a fucking great riff that I love so much. Rift is the best album.

They closed the set with I Am the Walrus. It was a good cover.

It opens with Blaze On. A common 3.0 song that was inevitable in this run. This is a nice version with good jamming at the beginning with crazy drumming. It goes to a nice piano led groove towards the middle section. By the end it picks up to a great energetic section before settling into a slower groove to end the song out.

We then go into Twenty Years later with Alumni and LTJP included in there. We pull all that around to a nice >

Meatstick has a nice melodic jam section. It gets crazy spacey at the end.

>Dirt was nice. I love that tune a lot. It was simple and it went into Harry

Hood begins very naturally. It goes into a very synth ridden mellow jam, and then builds up to a nice climax to close out the set.

Encore is a cover of Neil Young's Cinnamon Girl to establish the theme tonight. Not quite as good as Type O Negative and Peter Steele, but hey, its a great tune. Fun show closer! Overall, it was a good show, but not the best so far. Maybe the worst show yet honestly. Not too much to come back to. But they can't all be masterpieces. That would be asking a lot. N8 hopefully comes in with something better!
