Review by The_Ghost

The_Ghost The energy of the crowd really drove this show. I think some of the things which were overlooked include Page's Lawn Boy, in which he took time to consiliate the Rage side. There was a moment when Trey announced Texas as his birthplace and this show was a homecoming. Page helped to keep it going by first joining then recanting his own homecoming.

The end of set 1 antelope really set the mood for how the second set would open. A strong second set opening. David Bowie and Tweeprise are excellent examples of the peak of the energy. Loving cup was the only way to end as you could really take a drink of that vibe in that moment and fall down... drunk.

I do understand the criticism from some but I think they fail to see the power of the high points in this show. It was a very strong audience participation performance. I think they went off cuff more in this show than in the previous 4. Which may lead to a less clean and crisp, dare I say rehearsed sound, but it's much better for the moment and for the audience that made the journey through the shark infested waters of Texas. This was the start of the improvisation that will get tighter, and hopefully for me, will be seen again tonight.
