Rock and Roll

, comment by TheNonArmenianMan
TheNonArmenianMan I strongly disagree with whoever's decision it was to not list this Rock and Roll in yellow, if not greentext. Can we get a "re-check"? Easily in the top 5 moments of 3.0.

CreatureoftheNight This still stands as a monumental jam, easily deserving a return of its original yellow highlight status. Each band member leaves an indelible stamp on this excursion. At the 9 minute mark, the funk starts to move towards bliss in such a fluid way. Mike drops a huge bomb around 11:30. The following section of floating bliss is gorgeous. The jam could have easily faded out at 12:50, but Page wasn't having any of that. Pulsing forward for a time, 14:20 brings us to the most beautiful portion of the entire jam. You can't tell me this is anything but top shelf Phish up until the 18 minute. 19:05, here's Page to lead yet another transition. Symphonic Phish is back in action! Mike and Trey send things on a more ominous path and by 21:28, we reach probably the most experimentally creative portion of the year so far. Fishman's drum work echoing Trey's scratching takes us back to late night at Superball. The Ghost that follows provides a huge cathartic release of energy that compliments this jam well. 5 stars!

Slinky I can't help but disagree with the author's sentiments. I think this is just as much of a masterpiece as Gorge 11 is, in its own way. I'm not always a huge fan of sporadic jamming but I think everything that it touches on is pure gold.
