Review by waxbanks

waxbanks Let's be frank, here. Trey's Reba and Caspian and Carini solos are somewhere between 'aggressive' and 'obnoxious,' while the Suzy is stultifying then standard (only its sheer length is remarkble). Meanwhile the Drowned > Crosseyed covers nearly 45 minutes, of which more than 20 are premium exploratory outer-space Phish, and of all the Phish performances I've heard this Crosseyed probably comes closest to Adrian Belew's demon-cash-register vibe on the original.

This show is anything but essential, though the Drowned jam is pleasantly reminiscent of the enthusiastically experimental 1994-95 Tweezers (cf. 'A Live One'). I'd unhesitatingly recommend the more consistently interesting and stylistically varied 9/11/00 Great Woods show over this one, though you should pick up the 9/14 Drowned jam (along with, say, the thrilling 9/17 Theme > Dog Log) if you're assembling a mix or just sampling Phish2K.
