Review by montaigne

montaigne After last's night show, I am a believer. I rank last night's show with the phinest of 97 and 98. Yes, it was THAT good!

Last night's first set was excellent. I had it pegged as a contender for best set of the run...until the second set came and kicked our asses!!!!!!!! It might not be the best set I've ever seen, but it's probably the hardest I've ever grooved in my life. They were on...pardon the pun here...FUEGO!!!!!

I was not a believer until last night. I was 100% convinced that 97-98 were their best years, and that was settled.

I'm not sure that I was wrong, but I have my doubts now.

I love the longer jams and they don't do that as often anymore, but EVERYTHING they played last night was as funky as could be- with a new little dance/trance element added to the longer jams.

I'll never see another 7-23-1997. They may never play another 2001 like 8-17-97 or 7-18-98 that goes on for 20+ blissful minutes.

But man oh man, they manage to pack so much more into a smaller time and space.

The boys are absolutely phucking back (if they ever left), and last's nights show was one of the best I've ever seen (there, I said it!).

It's good to be alive!
Viva Montaigne.
