Review by Benjier

Benjier I listened to the entire show at home with headphones on. The first set was a slightly above average 3.2. Moma thru How Many People Are You was the highlight. I really dug Lonely Trip. Sounded like an Indie Folk track.

The second set was one of the most cohesive, seemless, serene, and interesting sets this tour. Every jam and transition was nearly flawless. So many interesting sections going from high energy and funky to quiet and contemplative to Sci-Fi weirdness. The song selection was spectacular, in relative terms. Looking at the set it may just look decent to you, but you can’t understand how good it is unless you hear it. Every song makes sense based on the jam/mood that precedes each song. I would even extend that to the encore although not as profoundly as the second set alone. When Trey asked Kuroda to turn the lights off during A Sea of Stars I walked outside to find the rain and clouds in my area had cleared. The temperature had dropped from 90 to 72. It was cool and damp and visceral just like the music, and I could see a few stars not affected by light pollution. My friend was across the country at the show and I felt connected to him at that moment. This set is a must listen and a solid 5.0. The current rating does not accurately reflect the breathtaking set that was created. This show should be at least a 4.1
