Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw This is really close to a 4 star show....But not quite.

The first set starts of pretty normal and standard, until Bowie kicks in. Which picks up the pace very slowly with some bomb dropping effects by Trey toward the end. Possum and Jibbo are good solid versions. Fluffhead is very strong despite some flub at certain parts.

Boogie starts off as a pretty straight forward version. Back On The Train is a cool extra slow version. Mike's song kicks in and has a really great funk section in the middle. Mcgrupp has to be one of the best post 94 versions I've heard, with the mid section being filled with beautiful, churning, and at time intense playing. Caspian has been known to be a 2nd set killer. But this version is extremely noteworthy and strong, and the Trey loop at the end perfectly compliments the song. The big highlight of this show has to be Weekapaug. It caps off the set starting with a nice Jungle Groove with Mike on fire. It builds into some huge peaks with everyone completely linked together, fantastic version.

Standard encore with a BIG exception of Hydrogen very oddly being sandwiched between two songs outside of Mike's Groove.

Overall quite a strong show. it just does not have enough of "IT" to hit those lofty bells other shows hit.
