Review by CentralScrutinizer

CentralScrutinizer Fair show. And for the record, lots of people stayed in their seats during set break. I sure did. The rain looked cool in the lights. It was an experience to endure the weather and enjoy phish at the same time. The tweezer and the cities had very nice moments but all in all this was a weak show compared to others this summer. The one thing they did do was nailed some great segues. The wedge was just ok but it was great how they segued into it. character zero was also not up to par. Most of the first set was just ok versions. The Bowie went someplace nice though. I really enjoyed the Beauty of a Broken Heart and Song I heard the Ocean Sing although SIHTOS wasn't a special version, Reba was nice but also nothing special. Number Line Ocelot and 46 days were also pretty standard, nothing to write home about. I actually liked the Sugar Shack and Sloth more than usual, not my favorite phish songs, but Sloth especially felt fun in the storm.
SEcond set was way better than the first with tweezer finding some interesting territory and Cities reverting back to that same territory after a beautiful segue. Rock n Roll, much like 46 days, was high energy and full throttle rock but not that jazzy, original or mind blowing. 2001 was a fun dance party version but kind of light and not that powerful. All in all an extremely average show and the weakest of the tour so far but still a very memorable fun time for all in attendance. But not a show I'll re listen to in the future very much if at all. Great considering what phish had to contend with though. Mother nature showed up to play with phish and who could blame her, I'd want to play with phish too every once in a while if I was her.
