westbrook You can consider this an average show from this time in the band's career. You'll want to hear the strong Divided Sky early in the show, as well as the transition between Wilson and Peaches. Wilson is unfinished because Trey's "Blat Boom" serves as the opening drum beat to Peaches. This was a fairly common occurrence in the 80s, and I was surprised to hear it pop up hear, but it's always a nifty move. The thing you'll probably want to go back to the most from this show is the nasty Split Open and Melt. This one is a must-hear for Melt fans. The set-closing DwD is pretty fiery, as well.

There's nothing quite as essential as the SOAM from the first set as there is in the second set, but the YEM>Vibration of Life>YEM and the Hood (which briefly goes type 2 in the quiet part of the jam) are good listens. The Hood doesn't peak as well as the best versions from this period. The extended encore is a nice addition to bolster this show somewhat.

It's a good show, just not the cream of the crop of the tour.
