Review by Penn42

Penn42 **This is my seventh of (hopefully) 71 reviews as I listen to the entire winter/spring '93 tour.**

Much better than last night's show. It's hard trying to imagine an era when Loving Cup was a new and fun cover. I'm personally a little tired of it, even though I'm trying hard to understand it's place in this era. All this early 90's listening is making me pine for Guelah to make a triumphant return into regular rotation. Reba and Divided Sky are fine choices for set one anchors and each is played well. Tela is always welcome. Catapult is a fun surprise coming out of I Didn't Know. Antelope has a little extra fervor.

Jim, Ice, and Coil are all fine renditions. Tweezer isn't nearly as exciting as previous versions this tour and the I Walk the Line that follows feels (and is played) like an afterthought. YEM's jams are solid, but the composed section is a mess. Another exploratory ambient vamp had my hopes elevated, but subsequent portions of the song are botched pretty badly. This is the first YEM vocal jam of Winter/Spring '93 that doesn't conclude with interesting harmony. This one retains the usual cascades of wailing and such.

No major highlights here, but the show is a decently constructed fun listen top-to-bottom. The Reba and first three songs of set two are likely the highest points.
