Review by CentralScrutinizer

CentralScrutinizer Great show. Probably the best limb by limb I've ever heard, Fishman and Mike were on fire tonight. The groove in Boogie On was one of the best I've ever heard from them and the best I've ever seen live of the 15 versions I've seen, although very different from the tempo shifting trippy groove monster from 12/29/03 that I also like so much. The golden age was awesome and ranks as one of my favorite versions. Waves was beautiful and so many east coast phans had been waiting for it all year. The rock n roll placement was great, rather than put it in its predictable set 2 song 1-3 spot and tryin to make it a centerpiece yet again, they played it early and met wild enthusiasm from the crowd that took it as a shot of adrenaline. Shame it was followed by sugar shack, the Reba probably would have been a little better had it followed RnR but Reba was still good, just not out of this world. Bathtub gin tried its best to crush as it was great but not really my kind of version. Still beautiful though as were Bug and Squirming Coil, just beautiful. 46 days rocked!!! Not the best first tube. Overall a great show and definite improvement on the first night.
