Review by AllThingsReconsidered

AllThingsReconsidered I was at this shows last summer and it was a great show all around. They played through the sets perfectly and nailed all transitions. Starting out with a rocking Bag you knew it was gonna be a good show. It got the crowd goin and Trey played very well and built up lots of momentum. The highlight of the first set for me was Mound. This was the last Mound to still be considered somewhat rare. After this show Phish starting busting out Mounds left and right. But at this show, Mound was still quite a rarity. Another cool little perk in the first set was the outro for Fee. Phish got going on a little ambient/melodical jam for about 2.5 minutes. I have never heard them do that at the end of Fee and it was quite interesting. Page added to it with some unique synthesizer tones at the end and it melded very nicely into the first set closer, BDTNL.

The second set started with a hard rocking Carini just like the first set with Bag. It rocked the crowd and got everyone going. The Tweezer in this set was incredible. Its improvisation sections like this that make me love Trey. Then it started to get real. Crosseyed -> Light -> Boogie On > Julius followed up with a picture perfect YEM. All i can say is listen to the last songs i just mentioned. Good shit.

The encore was alright. I don't really ever wanna hear another Loving Cup again but i could deal with it that time and Tweezer Reprise was expected.
