Review by TheEmu

TheEmu Most of the highlights of this show are concentrated in the first set, which contains excellent versions of Down With Disease and Crosseyed and Painless. YEM was also quite enjoyable, being performed, at long last, in Firenze.

Second set starts off promising, with a hot Antelope which becomes a vicious, heavy metal Wilson. From there, though, the set somewhat disappointingly loses steam. After many years I have become much more of a fan of Billy Breathes, Waste and Prince Caspian, but to have them all together in the second half of set II is a bit of a letdown, IMHO. The Reba is pretty decent, about a B+ version I think, but it doesn't really peak and just dissolves into Waste.

Between DwD, Crosseyed, YEM, and Antelope-> Wilson, this is still an above average show, though. Four stars.
