Review by DeicideLegion

DeicideLegion Personally, I thought the previous night's first set was better, but I enjoyed seeing Theme, Suzy, and obviously Fluffhead made me shit my pants. Listening back I think you can probably skip to set two, where the band takes us to space and sticks crazy things up our buttholes. I'm serious, I couldn't walk after this show. My butthole was in pain, but in the best possible way. I don't think I have to say more than that. The rare Mr. Completely is a tune I couldn't give a shit less about, but they always bring it and this was no exception. Feather was cool, but Ghost is where Phish really started ripping my butthole up. Damn! Darkness enshrouds my soul. They summoned demons, space demons and maybe demonic sharks... space sharks. Gin, 2001, all badass as well but Melt is really where Phish rival the most sinister death metal in terms of insanity. I thought I was leaving earth. Character Zero took me back to planet earth, a tame place in comparison. Melt got so dirty I think Zero even had some residual ooze.
If some of the set one snoozers like Halfway to the Moon had been replaced with, say, Col Forbin this show would have a 4.9999999. But I can't complain, as my butthole still has not recovered. What more can you ask for after a show?
