Review by yam_ekaj
*NOTE* The following review is most from the "in a vacuum," as it were. obviously, bc this is the first tour back and also my personal second show back, the excitement and enjoyment is through the roof. however, for the sake of the annals of .net, i will review with somewhat of an objective eye. with that said, objectively, this was a fire show.
set 1 was solid. by far the standout moment was the stash, which reached deep type 2 levels. it was a layered improvisation featuring standout playing from all four members, particularly fishman who has been on fire this run. good to see them really take it this tune for a walk. love it.
the earlier moma dance was also quite good, with trey delivering some extremely smooth lines. loved this version. spirited roggae and back on the trane as well. the rest of the songs were all a pleasure to hear and very well played. good set up for set 2.
second frame begins with the first ever 20-minute everything's right. absolutely fire jam. they are ripping off 20+ minute versions with ease. utterly effortless; such a pleasure to watch. what's the use is well placed here, love an early set version. fishman then pulls out his personal mic and it's on--crosseyed. one of my faves to hear live. this version didn't disappoint, going pretty far out in a very short time. and then trey puts a cherry on top by leading the band back into WTU before they drop into a quality DWD. Wading is nice--if they're gonna do a cool down, this is a worthy choice.
then possum comes on, one of my personal favorite songs. this is an absolutely flaming, machine gun, down and dirty sick ass possum. page destroyed his solo. then trey comes in: machine gun central. he really was relentless here--peak after peak. incredible. listen to this. perfect end to a great set.
drift encore--standard version (will admit here that this is not one of my favorite songs, but a good way to send folks home nonetheless).
phish is on fire
