snowmachinechopsit Expectations high and critics out in full force after a great performance at the Mann...

The 2nd set at Walnut was simply awesome.

The 1st set is getting a lot of flak, but is pretty underrated after a second listen, IMO.

The Llama opener is great, along with Moma Dance, Yarmouth, Tube, and Wolfman's as the standouts for me. Phish clearly brought the funk and a laid-back vibe to this 1st set. Almost every song was clean and tight. Waiting All Night and DTAD were a little sloppy, IMO, but the rest of this set is really on point, if not a bit disjointed. Not every set needs to be a barn burner or a perfectly flowing experience, however.

Overall, I think this is a decent 1st, plus an awesome 2nd set and encore. Above average show in the middle of one of their best tours, at one of the highest points in the band's career. Can't ask for much more than that.
