Review by tamabar

tamabar I've listened to this show more in the last month than just about any other show of 3.0 so far. There's just something about it. The setlist is playing whack-a-mole with my favorite Phish songs. If they've have played SOAMelt it'd be about my dream setlist.

This show is fire from beginning to end, and every song is extremely tightly played. The only breather in the entire show is Farmhouse, and even that is a pretty stellar version.

Others have provided great song-by-song reviews, so I've just got a couple things to add:

1) Anyone else notice in DWD that Trey drops into basically the same theme as he hit in the New Years 2015/16 CDT, Gin, and Tweezer? The slowly ascending, fuzzy, major-mode build? I love it. I think it was pulled off the best in that Gin, and really became the core of that version, but it nestles into this DWD perfectly.

2) This Hood seriously deserves a spot on the Jam Chart. It's the perfect culmination for this show. Just when it seems they are going to spill over into the closing section, Trey doubles down and the band builds the approach to the peak with such virtuosity it's breathtaking. No other band can do this.

3) Anyone see this image over at Phish From the Road, of Page, Trey, and Fish watching Mike slay the Coil solo? I wonder what Page was thinking watching this. What a gem. https://twitter.com/Phish_FTR/status/772517994241007617

4.75/5 and now I've got to listen again.
