Review by spreaditround

spreaditround SET 1:

Cities: Standard, played close to the vest.

The Curtain: Standard. >

Sample in a Jar: Has a little extra juice to it.

Ginseng Sullivan: Standard.

Bouncing Around the Room: Standard.

Maze: Surely melted some faces.

Something: Standard.

Ghost: All gas no brakes. Seriously. This is straight hellfire. Trey is a juggernaut. Would definitely recommend. The last minute things mellow out with Trey playing around with the reverse reverb and Page throwing in some heavy effects. Would recommend this version. >

Golgi Apparatus:

SET 2:

Also Sprach Zarathustra: The chorus or whatever you would call it doesn’t even start until about 7:20. Dance party USA. Above average version, very good stuff. Would recommend this version. >

Rock and Roll: Plenty of reverse reverb in this one, especially at the end – it’s very mellow and spacey – pretty cool. Decent version of Rock and Roll. ->

Taste: Page on a mission for his solo, crushes that baby grand. Trey destroys his section too. Monster, monster Taste. May as well be straight out of summer 97. How this is not a jamcharts version is absolutely criminal. Would highly recommend this version.

Frankie Says: Standard.

Gumbo: Very funky at first. And slow. From there – in the latter stages – this one gets muddy, dark, and has a certain edge to it. Then some big, crazy effects starting around 9:18 will snap you of the ether. Nice juxtaposition. Very cool Gumbo right here, way above average and bordering on great. Would recommend this version. ->

Chalk Dust Torture: Ripped.

Frankenstein: Standard.

Been Caught Stealing: It’s less than tight to open so it takes the crowd a good while to figure out what this is. Then right before the lyrics the lightbulb goes on.


You Enjoy Myself: Mike is loud and proud in this one. Love the theme that develops in the jam. So smooth. Very reminiscent of a fall 97 jam, the funk is very deep. Drums and bass jam is super sick too. Killer encore! Would recommend this version.

Summary: Solid first set with Ghost being the obvious anchor. Very good second set, lots of fun. Taste really blew me away! I think the Phish.net rating of 3.848/5 (92 ratings) is right on the money.

Replay Value: Ghost, Also Sprach Zarathustra, Taste, Gumbo, You Enjoy Myself
