gingerphish This show improved leaps and bounds on last night's performance. Energy is the name of the game and this show brought it heavy. Every single song, from the opening notes of Moma, felt fresh and played with purpose. This show was super tight and had amazing flow. In comparison to last night, which had a pretty decent DWD and an awesome Light jam to my ears, but had no flow, tonight didn't take anything deep but took everything to the top. See Theme From the Bottom as a perfect example of this. Solo was just absolutely scotching. The Everything's Right was the jam of the night. The boys took it up a notch with a nice, type one jam to start it off. After a moderately high peak, Page keeps it going and brings the jam down to some dirty, dark playing. Trey links up with Page and Mike here and brings the jam to the stratosphere. What a first set.

The second set was just has high energy as the first and definitely saw some type 2 treatments, but nothing mind boggling. I thought, probably like the rest of you, that the Carini was really heading in a nice direction before Trey abandoned it for Set your Soul Free. I was disappointed, but the jam out of Set your Soul Free did not disappoint and made me quickly forget about that pesky rip chord. Even this Wingsuit was well placed and peaked nicely. As I've said before, never complain about at Scents and Subtle sounds in this spot. Waste was definitely needed before the mind bending that happened during this SOAM. Holy crap this jam got effects-laden and dark. While I also agree that this could have been a 93 jam, I would say it would also fit right in 03 as well.

Overall, this show just brought the heat and energy. I highly recommend listening to this show that is sure to be lost in the scuffle of a deep jam summer tour. Phish always delivers at Camden.
