Review by fhqwhgads

fhqwhgads The variety of jamming on display in this show astonishes me to this day (and I'd like to thank Phish for the longest Jim since--at the latest--2.0.) As we watched the webcast, it was almost as if Fall '97 had crashed the party to the delight of all, because there were actual, honest-to-goodness jams in the first set. Sure, the spelling gimmick is amazing, and the "We love Dick's" antics are funny, but the music is my passion with Phish, first and foremost, and it's remarkable how you can go from an ambient sort of bliss jam in Carini, to a peakier jam in Undermind, to a kind of combination in Jim, to pure ambience in Farmhouse (for goodness' sake!), to a coherent and thoroughly satisfying melange in Chalkdust. This is the best show 3.0 has produced, in my opinion, especially if you exclude Halloween runs and New Year's runs. It was just novel as all get-out, and I love it!
