olfactory_Splooge First time reviewer. Can't wait to take a beating for my opinions!! I was in Mexico under that full moon standing at what I deemed Palm Tree #1 just past the sound board on the Rage side.

YEM opens the show. It's YEMexico. Nothing special. Turtle In The Clouds is a super jam in training. There were obvious new flourishes and the crowd went nuts for it as I am sure for most it was their form time. Who doesn't like 46 days (assholes that's who). NMINML Is kind of standard. I hear teases of things I can't place as mike steps to the front mid way though. The moon makes its grand entry for the evening low on the horizon. Palm Tree #1 gets the full CK5 treatment. Trey half assses a chorus and then we get kinda spooky until page brings out all his post BD laser noises which fade into a non novelty version of Emotional Rescue. And then the fucking TUBE!!!! Its fire. It was fire there, its fire in the tapes. its fire. I ate Mexican Corn on the Cobb during Shade and quite honestly really enjoyed this version. Saw It Again.... I have now Seen It Again.

The next 40 min were sick as fuck. You have the recordings. Set Your Soul free moves though its motivation poster lyrics and then fucking rages right into the best Mercury to date. This song has really grown on me and I suppose they had to practice it for NYE. The now standard jam after the composition is 3.0 bliss goodness. In an era where most of the new lyrics kind irk me.... this one does me good. Must hear if you like the small planet. Then we get a weak slave. not horrible just weak. The rest of this show is just good time but nothing special. More as a one song encore is a thing of evil. Make it stop.

A solid phish show but my least fave of the three. Tube and Mercury are must hear stuff and like I said before you can hear the beginnings of the 25 min Turtle In The Clouds making their way out.
