This might have been the weakest of the shows so far. And that Ghost was great as was the Light. Not to mention the Boston Cream, but still somehow the weakest.

It's amazing that a show with as much greatness as this one had can be thought of as the weakest due to how well they've been playing this run.

So this was an interesting show.  Great moments abounded, but I kind of feel like they're running out of steam just a little bit.  Ghost felt like it left some money on the table, and Gotta Jibboo is long and was GREAT during the early jam, but didn't really do much for me towards the peak.  Didn't seem like they could hook up on anything.  Lots of Trey flubs, again.  Granted, he's playing a lot.  So i get it.  Page totally chopped the ending off Lizards outro jam one or 2 times early.... that still had legs as well.  So it goes. 

Frost after Sunshine of your Feeling was.... a strange call.  It was played magnificently, but holy hard left turn...

I actually liked Light too!  That was fantastic.  Tomorrow is certainly going to be interesting!

The LivePhish.com page just lists that section of the show as Sunshine of Your Feeling and rolls all the Boston and Cream into one track.

Show crushed, energy in that room was through the roof.

I think it is clear they are tired, I had that thought last night, but nothing is taking away from the awesomeness that was that show. They are being as creative as ever, I thought the show flowed beautifully.

Oh I liked it plenty!  I just thought it wasn't finished yet haha... I felt like that well of energy/creativity was not tapped dry yet, that it still had legs.  I wanted it to go back up one more time, or stretch that outro out a bit and get a little creative.  Same with Lizards.... i was totally feeling the outro jam going around at least one more time to really milk the feeling, but Page came in with the piano slide earlier than I was anticipating.  It just felt cut off is all.  Trey actually played that section flawlessly too!  Very impressed.  It's a great song when it's played correctly. 


On another note, Fishman has been killing it on drums lately.

That's funny.  Trey teasing that is what put it over the top for me, and I lost all control of myself for the rest of that segment.  That is also when I lost my voice.

Absolutely love the Boston/Cream segment. Pure exaltation.

I'll never forget watching the crowd during the "I'm just taking my time.." breakdown section. White lights... EVERYONE clapping along. Pure enjoyment and happiness on 20,000 faces. I will not forget that moment.

I kept getting thrown off in disbelief honestly. I kept thinking to myself "wait this is not how this song goes... HOLY FUCK!"  this logic loop repeated a few more times.

As for the rest of the show... The Ghost was definitely my personal highlight. They took this one slow and let it build organically. This one was non stop. I've been loving how they've really gotten comfortable with letting things unfold through the run rather than rushing and ripchording everything.

The Jibboo was an absolute dance fest, they killed this one, follows suit to naturally letting things unfold and just testing the new waters they've uncovered. Total groove, and perfect for the first set as the jam was light and fun. The comfort that the BD offered really speaks miles in these shows. 

Although Light, the song, sucks. This jam was pretty cool too. I like the tension building near the end, unfortunately they didn't release like they could have, but I still think it was solid.

Quinn was worth mentioning, Plasma bust out! (with killer jam, and pushed the set pretty late time wise).

So I'm pretty much a fan of Petrichor at this point. There's some sophisticated stuff going on, kudos to Trey for putting in the effort on this one. I love those classical sounding guitar passages. It lacks "The Peak" that most basically every other composition has so there's no big payoff, but.... the jam is pretty nice either way.

Been on a Gamehendge kick recently, went back to hear The Lizards.  Ouch!  Trey completely blew this song.  Don't get me wrong I love this run and they played some really good stuff however I can't believe how bad they botched Lizards.  Trey sounds absolutely horrible when comping behind Page and, he blows most of his arpeggios.  Also their background harmonies are non-existent.

Yes. That was brutal.
