Review by DownWithAntelopes

DownWithAntelopes I'm commenting from my couch tour experience but....this show was epic. The Wolfman's was so solid. Guyute was too..and the Guyute teases in Bowie, Wilson, Saw it Again, and Antelope had the crowd going crazy. All of these songs were, of course, kickin'. The boys were on fire; throwing seven different kinds of smoke! I was stoked when they launched into Wilson..the fact that they never finished it had me anxious for the entire rest of the show. I kept waiting for the "BLAT BOOM" every time the energy seemed to be at a peak, but it never came. The Antelope was phenomenal...the build up was steady and the tension created was powerful, which led the final release being quite orgasmic. I'll take an Antelope at any show I go to.
Sitting in my room, set break seemed to go on forever. I was far too anxious sitting at my computer hoping that the "BLAT BOOM" would kick of the second set with a vengeance, but that didn't happen.

The second set was really solid too. I'm having trouble picking which one I enjoyed more...I think I'd have to go with set one. All the teases and the energy were just off the wall. I enjoyed every single song on this entire setlist and could go on about them for days. Drowned was great; definitely one of my favorite covers. Sand will always be a favorite of mine but I wish it would have gone on longer..it was only about 10 minutes and after getting a 22 minute Sand last year I always expect the heat in there. Theme and Axilla were both real solid and then BIRDS OF A FEATHER! Totally awesome and pretty rare these days. Axilla right into Birds (and the crowd goes wild!). The SOAM> Have Mercey>Piper>SOAM> Slave was NUTS. I was loving live real hard during that. Piper is one of my main jams and that slave was pretty long and sounded really great.

The encore was alright in my book. I love zeppelin and I love how the boys cover Good Times Bad Times but I was just expected something else...something more. It was definitely a solid GTBT though...by the end of it I logged off of my computer fully satisfied.

After listening live, this show is already one of my favorites. I can only imagine what listening to it all the way through a couple more times in the next few days will do to me. Another epic show boys..thank you for ripping it.
Thanks to taper420 for the perfectly crisp stream...you're the man.
I'll see you lucky ones at MSG in December/January!

Maybe Wilson's "BLAT BOOM" will reveal itself in one of these next few shows when the energy is at its' highest.
