Split Open and Melt

, comment by n00b100
n00b100 One of the best first-set jams ever, and probably the most contentious (certainly the Denver Ghost doesn't invite the same kind of debate), in that it's a weird animal that can be hard to embrace as easily as something like the super fun 11/6/98 SOAM or the vicious piledriver that is the 12/7/95 Melt can be. But it's a true roller-coaster ride, in that you (and the band, probably) have no real idea where the band's going next, and its wealth of creativity and willingness to leap into the void here and there make it certainly worth a listen at least once. I personally think it's an incredible piece of music, all the more so because it's harder to embrace than pretty much every other great 3.0 jam.

Also, there is probably no chance they didn't do that ending on purpose.
