Review by Menses

Menses Amazing show, you could really tell the guys were not only feeling the energy the audience had but were having fun giving it back. There were no "bathroom break" songs which was bad news for my bladder but heaven for my ears. From Page hamming it up on Lawnboy, Tony Markellis sitting in on Gotta Jibboo to Trey's freestyling on Makasupa, it was one of the finest Phish shows I've ever seen and easily the best so far this summer.

There were many "outer limits" jams throughout the night, Piper was dark and scary, 2001 was an assault on the ears as were Antelope and YEM's peaks. The standout song for me, and the one I've been listening on an almost constant loop is Trey's "Sleep Again". I'd never heard it live before and it just feels so good, it was clearly written to be played with Phish. The main lick is so damn catchy I was humming it the whole ride home and have been trying to pick it up on my guitar since.

A Frankenstein encore with Page on keytar, awesome!

The bottom line is is that this is a great show and worth picking up and listening to from beginning to end, the flow from song to song is perfect. My only complaint is that it was a Sunday show and I had to work at 8 the next day, so that makes it a 4.99 out of 5 in my opinion.

** Little know fact, Page's keytar was bought from the James Brown estate "The More you know"**
