Review by SolarGarlic

SolarGarlic This was a pretty good show. The first set had two debuts, which can be risky, but also had deeper jams than is typical of Set I Phish of this era.

Mike is WAY up in the mix and taking a bigger role the past week or so. This show is no different. Some of the jams co-feature Trey and Mike simultaneously. Trey is holding back quite a bit at times (in a good way) and not making all the jams so guitar-heavy. It seems like this will be a nice new jam style if Page will join in.

The only complaint I have is Trey forcing the end of one song and the beginning of another in a way that totally breaks the flow. I feel like this happened at least twice. The best example of it is the 'Light' -> '46 Days'. The jam was great and they had already made a transition that one could tell '46 Days' was coming. Instead of letting it happen, Trey forced it by playing chords. It really broke what would have been a memorable and great, TRUE segue (a rarity now). It broke the flow, and I don't see how the other guys aren't annoyed by this.

Highlights: 'KDF', 'Sneakin''-> 'Light'-> '46 Days', 'Slave'.
