Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw Despite the extremely large shadow of the next night, this show absolutely destroys.

To me it's an excellent example of a show that snowballs bigger and bigger each set (much like N2 of IT). But don't misunderstand all of these sets are excellent. Just a quick overview.

Water in the Sky is a great opener and well played. Light up or leave me alone is crispy goodness with spot on accuracy. LxL and Suzy are solid great versions. Ghost takes off in a big way like a rollercoaster.

Set 2 has a great special appearance with the Curtain. A very pretty and mellow Tweezer Jam. A nice stretched out Taste. And a beautiful hood.

Set 3 to me is one of the best Festival sets I've ever heard (I leave out 12/31/99 because of the length). There is nothing stale in the set. It has all time versions of Antelope (not sure if a better one has been played since) and a super crazy Mike's Song. But everything is also top notch.

Overall amazing show. Worthy of 5 stars from me.
