Review by bbaggins

bbaggins This was my first phish show. They played a lot of the songs I liked and they broke out a couple songs they don't play very often like mellow mood, and cool it down. The Cities in the second set was really great. all around great show. To bad phish never comes back to the twin cities anymore. I kept hoping they would come back but they still haven't. I finally decided to go see them again in 2012 at alpine valley.

Review by The__Van

The__Van I can’t say there’s much interesting about the first set overall. Chalk Dust has some mildly above average work from Trey and Roggae has some cool interplay between Mike, Fish, and Trey. But yeah once again I got “going through the motions” vibes from this set.

However, hard disagree with @jibler on this Cities. I was mesmerized! There’s the textural ambience from ‘99 I’ve been missing! The jam gradually picks up energy again near the end for a cool finale > Free. Free ain’t too shabby neither. Extended by a bit, good stuff from Mike and Trey is seemingly starting to favor the lower register and thick tones from his guitar. Kind of a proto-2.0 sound. Ya Mar seems to have potential to be stretched out but it doesn’t go anywhere. Carini is played to its standard loud metallic sludge. Page croons us down with Lawn Boy as usual. As he heads back to the keys Fish comes out from behind his drums for the vacuum portion of the show. Something about this felt a little off to me. Like Fish feeling like this joke is old. Particularly because these segments are usually a lot more joyous and silly. Cool It Down comes out of nowhere and, just like Halloween debut, this one has a nice extended jam attached. Give it a listen. Bowie has some fine set closing energy and Fire once again is a perfect encore.

This one is a bit tired. Cities > Free is great as is Cool It Down -> Bowie. Give that Roggae a listen as well.

Review by frognasty

frognasty Fun show with great energy from the crowd and band. Was glad to see mellow mood. The target center erupted with pot smoke... it was hilarious. Band was on point. solid first set. I might add the only time I saw a glowsticks war with no music was during the divided sky pause at this show. ...lol Minnesota you so crazy....

Cities was fun. A nod to the twin cities and the crowd loved it. Really groovy jam. So awesome. Loved free as usual. Band was having fun you could tell. Fishman did his weird shit and then they played cool it down which was great. I always remember this show fondly as it was such a fun night. Give it a listen.

Review by spreaditround

spreaditround Mellow Mood: Cool opener.

Chalkdust Torture: Short and sweet.

Back at the Chicken Shack: Last time ever played.

Sparkle: Only played twice on fall tour (Blossom)

The Sloth: Cool! Only played twice on fall tour and…wait for it…also at Blossom!

Divided Sky: Like peanut butter and chocolate, The Sloth and Divided Sky were meant for each other. Good version.

Roggae: Dreamlike.

First Tube: Good placement, set needed some punch.

Punch You in the Eye: Interesting late first set placement. Like!

Sample in a Jar: Ok, guess they are saving it all for the second set.

First set summary: It’s not hateful but there is literally nothing here to revisit. At all.

Cities: Subtle loop at 6:49. I see the clap along crowd from Chicago made the trip to MN. How could you clap along to this extremely mellow groove in the 8-minute range? Defies logic. Most think this is over at 9 minutes and applaud as if they are going to go to another tune. Nope. This jam is beyond mellow, enough to put you to sleep. This jam could almost be out of the Lemonwheel ambient set. I'm only half kidding.

Free: This Free rocks big time. Mike thumps. Crowd eats it up.

Ya Mar: What an incredibly odd place in the set for this tune.

Carini: Rocks, good little jam.

HYHU LOVE YOU HYHU: Fun with Fishman

Cool it Down: RARE. Huge bust out. First time played since its debut at 10.31.98, 130 shows. This jam consists of a lot of boring strumming. Sleepwalking.

David Bowie: Pretty strong Bowie and a great way to close the set.

Encore:

Fire: Rip roaring good time.

Second set summary: This show just does not do it for me. Cities is the big highlight and it is too mellow for my tastes. Cool it Down has that big bustout cache going for it. Free, Carini and Bowie were all good. But certainly not great. I would rate this as a 3.3 out of 5.
