art_vandelay As of this writing, the average rating for this show is below 4, which makes me shake my head in amusement. Set 2 is a keeper from front to back, heavy on the jamming, only taking a breather during Waste. While the highlights are plenty, I should give special mention to the segue from Piper into Light, which seemed effortless in its execution. If you don't get hung up over the setlist on paper, you might realize set 1 has an enjoyably cohesive flow of its own, featuring a buttery Steam > Stash > Steam segue and a 21-minute exclamation point with a type II Rise/Come Together closer. The four song encore was nothing to sneeze at either, lol...

Do I have attendance bias? Possibly. However, while I've occasionally walked out of a show thinking "I had fun, but I didn't get taken to 'that place' tonight", I most definitely did NOT have that thought in Raleigh. Already relistened to it, and it still sounds great in my living room...
