Review by fhqwhgads

fhqwhgads The first set might be summed up favorably as "average-great" or less generously as "perfunctory." I totally appreciate that the band sounds cohesive and practised in this set, though. Ride Captain Ride is also a really nice treat of a rarity. The second set, however, is phenomenal! Down with Disease moves through several distinct segments, including a pretty-and-spacey/ambient jam as well as a peaking hard-rock jam towards the conclusion of the version. I'm also happy that Twenty Years Later--sadly absent most of the time more recently in Phishtory--got a prominent chance to shine in the second-song-of-the-second-set slot. Carini is also a tremendous version that I think tends to retread some of the territory explored in the 6/22 Twist from this same year, and it was probably the phan favorite Carini of 3.0 until 10/18/13 happened (which is a must-hear Carini!) Harry Hood encores are pretty rare, too, and Trey likes to play Show of Life to close shows (or did, for the first few years of post-breakup Phish) so if it makes him happy it can't be that bad.
