Review by TheEmu

TheEmu First set is standard and well played, without too much going on of note. Melt is good not great, and the Dinner & A Movie gets flubadiddled into an interesting acapella section in the middle. The Magilla is probably my first set highlight, as it is high-energy and up tempo with a hopping drum solo. Second set has some interesting things going on, with a good Bowie including Charlie Chan-induced silent jam and an enjoyable Ya Mar that matches the first set Magilla for pep. The Bathtub is another early deconstruction wonk, but it gets broken ALL the way down and then just clunks to a stop. I actually found it more interesting than the standard-issue deconstruction Bathtubs, but it still isn't anything to seek out. The AC/DC Bag is kind of interesting, with the stop/start jamming. You also have a solid Hood, and decent versions of Chalkdust, Caravan, and BBFCFM (Die! Die! Die!) When it's all said and done, though, interesting/decent/solid = average, so this = three stars again.
