Review by timrpow

timrpow I lived off of the Scents and Subtle sounds from this show the way a brokenhearted person lives off the last few vestiges of love at the end of a relationship. The way the guys harmonized...."colors in the void" and then went off into deep space ambient oblivion, the scents of the crowd and the sounds of the scene. Those were the last true "show memories" that I would ever carry with me (or so I thought). Even before I knew that Coventry would turn out to be the trainwreck it was- the last "normal" show of a tour for me was always the last non-festival show. It was the shed, the arena, the stadium where they had to play a standard 2 set & encore show. This song sums up my whole 1995-2004 Phish experience. What begins as innocent and beautiful ends in a majestic cacophony of etherial darkness and reverberation. BOOM. I loved this version!

on a side note, the Yem > Ghost > Maze sequence is really tight. I love the strength of that first BOY! scream from Trey, as if it might be his last one (of course they played it at the next show in Coventry, but I really like the simplicity of the post-tramps jam in this Yem).

See everyone at the Mann in two days!!
