Review by ivebeentheretoo

ivebeentheretoo I just want to say that I think the overall playing has been leaps and bounds above msg. I'm thoroughly satisfied all around with the execution of every song this run. Type 2 Jamming has not come as much, but I would put the quality of the improv above some of the examples from this last New Years run. For me, that much talked about twist fell amazingly flat, because trey did not feel like he was participating. That is not the story en Mexico, and even if the jams fall apart, at least everyone is putting in a full effort.

Cities was wonderful, as was golden age and light for your type 2 needs. Outside the box playing came in many tunes all night, as opposed to a single big jam. wading and Caspian were actually well placed and had great energy musically, and even joy was fun to hear. I can not pick on the Reba and Hood peaks, but even they were well above average for 3.0. Chalk dust, timber, Julius and 46 days were all very committed and intense, and to me the band felt "on" in a way they did not for most of New Years. While some examples like tweezer and NMINML were more jaw dropping than what we got last night, the overall consistency and flow has made these shows much more enjoyable to me. They could have done more, but they were on for every song. Not perfect but fucking solid.

4/5
