Review by 90MinuteJam

90MinuteJam Quite an exciting day for me folks, my first post. After seeing and listening to more phish than a grown man should, I felt the need to write on this one. My take on it- Best show ever! The boys have grown and expanded out of the knarly style of the 90s (Isla Vista to name one) and this show gave a nod to those days. Specifically, it’s our friend the 25-minute Golden Age that melded the best of two eras: The type II jam and the knarly jam. With two peaks, great piano parts, and a unique drum beat in the second half, we all listened and danced with focus and excitement. And it’s the last 5-minutes that has elements of the 90s knarly jam.

What is one to do upon hearing this? Well, I swapped my morning coffee with morning 10/28 Golden Age. As well as, it has become my unit of measure. For instance, it took me five 10/28 Golden Ages to paint my daughter’s room on Saturday.

Since its hard for one killer song to carry a show, lets consider: Overall great song choice throughout both sets; The bust-outs, which includes a rarely played Crimes of the Mind (that they slayed); Several songs jammed out (Simple should be included on the list above); A Squirming Coil ending that is sublime; And a double encore with an Axis end. Best show ever…Who’s with me!?!?!

Alright, so maybe I conclude just about every show is the ‘best ever’. I mean, we’re all jamming and rocking out as a phamily to great music, which is the best ever.
