Review by SolarGarlic

SolarGarlic A lot of people around me thought this show was a little mellow. I think another review mentioned this. I definitely noticed the peaks and valleys throughout. With that said, each of the more mellow songs were played really well. A song like 'Farmhouse' or 'Heavy Things' can really fall flat, but when played well, are magnificent. I think too many people are caught up on how much "high energy" a show has. If all people want to hear is 'Mike's' 'Possum' 'Weekapaug', 'Antelope' and all that, it makes me wonder how much people actually like the band's catalog. It could be cause I'm getting old, but a nice 'Roggae' 'Brian and Robert' 'Mountains' 'Bug' or something like that is a nice change when played well (I can live without the 'TTE'). Those upbeat tunes can get monotonous after a while. Personally, I like the varied set-lists. The only tune I question the placement of is 'Wading'. Perhaps kept the level down a little too long.

In the end, the band was having a great time and they sounded great. Even if it wasn't the best show you've seen, this show was NOTHING to complain about.
