Review by DollarBill

DollarBill North of the border we go for the only show at the 86th Street Music Hall, 45th of the tour, and it's a pretty good one overall. The recording or transfer again was marred by some digital or bad cord noise. I would love to hear the soundboard of this one.

Nice Landlady to open with, good, but not great leading right into a Rift, which was a mess. The timing still needs to be worked on. Guelah was good, a little off spot at the end, but good. Sparkle was good and controlled. Melt was rocking with a really nice jam. The early first set Coil was good with Page's solo making way for Trey to pick up the acoustic for a decent My Friend. Reba was pretty solid, just a little spot at the end. Horn had rough middle from Trey's part, but not too bad. Antelope is absolutely rocking, and a great closer to this set.

Good Suzy to open up second set with a nice jam. Stash was rough at times, but had a great dynamic jam. Seemed like Trey flubbed the lyrics in the middle. Mound was rushed, ok but rushed. And so was ATR. Fishman settled in a little more and they pulled it off. Sloth rocked, not the best Sloth, and they didn't really do the normal end count. YEM was great! Definitely check this out. And if that wasn't enough Page rips into a nice Jesus! Very well done, dynamic and rocking. My Sweet One was super fast and featured a full four-minute pause at the end. HYHU brings Fish out for some introductions and a swinging Love You. Very fast like the rest of the set. Cavern is a great closer to this rocking set.

Sounds like Trey teasing Weigh lyrics before they do a solid GTBT to encore tonight’s four-star show.

Again, I'd love to hear a board copy of this show to get the full effect. Highlights: Melt, Reba, Antelope and YEM, Jesus in the second set.
