Review by dutchbug

dutchbug I haven't read others' opinions on this show, but I can say personally that I dug it. I've wondered why Trey would cut songs off so quickly when he could have jammed them before, and now I know---it's to produce something like this cool mini set. People who don't have the attention span to sit through a whole 20 minute jam can sit through 4 segued songs with improvised interludes. This is jamrock for the masses, and I dug it. 46 days was a great way to start off, Undermind kept up the funk...not quite sure what they're going for with Halfway to the Moon lately, but hey it's cool. Carini blew up, Devotion To a A Dream, 555, Twist...these are all solid. Well done, guys.

As I may have said before in reviews here, I'm convinced that the band is nearly as concerned (if not more) with the quality of their webcasts as they are with the live experience. They are trying to innovate by being a band that competes with baseball for viewers, which is pretty rad. I hope this widens Phish's audience somehow, but I doubt that they have that much room for expansion.
