Bob_Loblaw When you hear about 2004, and people talk about how terrible a lot of it is, typically Vegas comes up as one of the low of the low. You listen to N1 and understand how that could very well be true. This show, however, is not the same as the day before. I would not call it an epic show. I may not even say it's an above average show as a whole. But it is an overall good show with some good versions of songs.

Seven Below starts things off on a much better note than the night before. It has a nice powerful little jam to it. Rock and Roll drifts of just a little into a nice tiny jam. The segue into Possum is pretty damn good. And Taste is above average to end the set.

A strong version of Jibboo starts off set 2. Twist has some nice exploration it picks up speed towards the end into some nice peaks. I would say that this Twist jam is one of those that may have been stretched longer than it should. But no matter it's still decent. The HYHU segment is one of the most obnoxious ones ever, but hey they tried something new there's nothing wrong with that. Wilson is above average with a cool Little Drummer Boy tease in it's center. Waves > Lifeboy is a fitting cool down segment to the set. Although Horse Silent in the Morning and Loving Cup kept the cool down longer than it should have.

The encore to me might be the highlight of the show. This is a very strong slightly extended Hood that goes into some very nice Type 2 action for a little while and moves into a great conclusion.

A nice bounce back show for the guys.
