Review by Penn42

Penn42 I'm quite surprised this show is getting rated lower than the previous night. Of course, it is less than 24 hours after the show, but I felt this was obviously the better show. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

I think the current cause of the lower rating was the lack of big jams. Personally, I have no problem with their absence because the type-I playing is really really strong. The first set jams aren't that much to talk about; the songs that rock, rocked. The second set got a little exploration in Rock and Roll, which featured some stellar Gordo. Steam was awesome. It has a short littler funky post-jam that is notable too. Numberline was predictable: it was way overdue and Trey loves playing it in the second set. I was ready and I wasn't phased a bit. Plus, it rocked out pretty stinkin' hard.

Now Mike's. This is a very unique Mike's Song. Trey takes a back seat for most of the jam and Page proceeds to kill it hard. Seriously, it's all about Page. Yay! We finally got Hydrogen! Weekapaug isn't particularly great. Joy is Joy. At least it's only four and a half minutes. Fluffhead was much cleaner than the Gorge version, 2001 was good, as is the status quo, and Slave was super-duper patient. Someone seems to say it every time, but I feel like this is one of the better 3.0 versions. I'm not a Slave expert, but I'm confident in my assessment that the build and peak are absolutely nailed.

Encore was great! Love Waste in the encore slot, and Suzy was a fun bonus! If you're expecting a jammed out show, I can see how uou mght be dissapointed, but this is a good show regardless. My guess is this show's rating will rise with time.
