remgem1 This was a solid show with good length to the sets but not much length to the songs. Lots of changes in meter and style but I felt Trey showed very little experimentation in his guitar playing and seemed content to drone single notes on many occasions. There were several chances to extend his solos and get creative but he left me wondering wtf is he thinking. Mike more than compensated for that void by being an absolutely ridiculous monstrosity throughout the show. He was dropping bombs and made me aware once again that he is one of the best bass players. He also added great vocals and many diverse playing styles. Mike and Page helped bring on the heavy dark funk with Page leaning on the clavinet nicely. Fish added some strong vocals and a nicely processed vacuum solo to the mix. The Zep cover at the end of the first set was one of the the highlights of the show for me. The Talking Heads cover in the second set was good. When the covers are the highlights of the show, there is clearly very little improvisation within the Phish songs to talk about. I would rate it a 3.5 out of 5.0.
