Review by RubyWaves

RubyWaves bustouts were fun. especially torn and frayed which had a very nice jam.

ghost and free are legit jams, go seek out both of em, especially free

landlady -> destiny unbound was a great pairing and really got me back after that shade.

crosseyed is a nice microjam, but i'm sorry to say this but that was one of the weakest antelopes i've heard in a long time. trey flubbed the intro and they could never seem to lock in.

beneath a sea of stars was fucking excellent. i don't really want to say anything, just have a listen.

yem was really solid too, but the vocal jam definately had that "come on let's wrap this up" feel. doesn't subtract a lot because it's the damn yem vocal jam but still

4/5, some weak spots, but the highlights are some really damn good stuff, and the type 1 excursions i didn't mention like jibboo and steam are solid stuff

recommended jams: ghost > free, landlady > destiny, basos

Review by ForgeTheCoin

ForgeTheCoin IMO, this show is criminally underrated! The Mexico '20 opener picks right up where the NYE run left off - with the band firing on all cylinders and an infusion of 'Rock God' Trey coming off of his recent Oysterhead performances.
Give it a listen. It really is worth it. The Ghost resolves to a beautiful and uplifting bliss jam. Free goes to some VERY interesting places. Shake Your Coconuts is FUN. Victim is tight and leads to a really tasty bouncy jam > dark funk. Moma Dance has LEGS. Jibboo is 8 minutes of TASTY BLISS. Shade is, I dare say, the most beautiful version of it they've ever done. Trey does new things with the vocal melodies... his singing has never sounded better. The Landlady was unexpected and great as usual. Destiny Unbound brings the FUNK as it did in Charleston. Steam is an ALL TIMER with some of the most blistering guitar work I've heard from Trey in the 3.0 era. Jam Chart material. Great transition into an excellent, upbeat Crosseyed! The Antelope... well it has problems... but eventually gets to the jam. Sea of Stars shimmers... is there a bad version of this tune??? Heady and blissful. Santos is hard driving and feels more refined than previously. The YEM is average great and brings some funk per usual.

TL : DR - Must Hear: Free, Steam Really, listen to Free through Crosseyed, and Sea of Stars. This show is going to get a LOT of relistens from me... especially the Steam.

Review by treynpage

treynpage I really dug it (from the couch anyway). The fact that a song like Antelope was the technical low point says a lot about the overall quality of the set. There was a playful energy that is usually a key component to their willingness to stretch things out, and I think that showed up well in a lot of the jams. A lot of exploration in just about every song. Landlady>Destiny brought me back to listening to a bunch or early 90s tapes from a long time ago. I almost expected that segue to happen when it did.

I also like the idea of a single monster set to start things off. Brought out a really nice element in the way they approached the set and the song selection.

A_Buddhist_Prodigy I know these Mexico shows don't get a lot of love, but I have to say I really enjoyed this show! It was obvious the boys are enjoying the hell out of playing there (how could they not?!?!). It seems like they are taking the microjam idea to each song. The Landlady -> Destiny was outstanding!

Also, I swear Mike teased Live and Let Die and the end of Destiny.

Review by ramperscamper

ramperscamper The one set show caught me off guard (although someone pointed out to me that it was billed as such ).

Nonetheless it has me wondering : were they giving the idea of a one set show a test run? I liked the change, just for the sake of doing something new; but it’s just so out of character for them .
