Review by Redbonefrancey

Redbonefrancey I was heartbroken walking out of Hampton that night. Everyone's covered pretty much every aspect. However I'm confused why, the absolutely fierce and fiery 2nd set opener, "All of These Dreams," (I do love the song regardless), upset most people. Well, every person I know, and, it seems, everyone here..BUT, it was an obvious decision Pholks! It is practically THE ONLY proper follow up to the 1st set's conclusion, "Loving Cup." Of course, no one can truly know the minds of four Vermontians when making such crucial, yet clamorous, melodic decisions! But if one tries to place him/herself as close as one can to that Phinite alcove, one might find one's self standing next to "THE MAN ON THE MOUNTAIN" and one would clearly see the connection, the transparent reciprocity available in that "PLACE ON THE MOUNTAIN NEARBY!" Therephore (!), in light of the first-line- lyrical-association of these two ditties, the irony of the "mountain," being a possible reason for such an odd decision, can painfully come to fruition in the fall that would take place, from that lofty proverbial spot, where these same Vermontarians fell, only to once again claim that uniquely Phormed ledge after a glorious, and painstaking, reemergence!
That's the best I got! That show was tough. The whole scene/air/energy felt as muddy as the sludgy jams that characterize the 2.0 era. And I, personally, love that shit!
