Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw I remember reading a review of this show a while back and it discussed how 2/28/03 and 11/28/03 are polar opposite shows in terms of quality, I could not disagree more. sure 2/28/03 is one of the greatest Phish shows ever played, but this show is pretty underrated IMO.

Jim is excellent and has some fantastic peaks. Ghost is always nice when it decides to come out first set, and this one has a nice serene jam. Bag is great and like many from this particular year it has an amazing peak at the end. Great segue into First Tube. Now Gin shows up? Pretty stuffed first set. The jam has some great hose, then it speeds up and everyone contributes. Free ending the set instead of Gin is somewhat bizarre, but the segue into Free is excellent.

Waves is an excellent version, it's stretched out but by means of an extended solo which is always welcome by me. Another weird placement of a song as Sample is the second song in the set, but the segue into it is great so how much can you complain? DWD starts out with a nice extended thrashing solo. Then it goes into a fairly straightforward jam. Mike's song is especially strong excellent work by Trey. The same could also be said about Weekapaug. Although not groundbreaking in any way it's a very solid Mike's Groove.

Crimes of the Mind is fairly sloppy, nothing I'd revisit.
