Really enjoyed Trey's playing in that second set. Had a blast in the LST. The whale was pretty much absent the entire show, especially during key songs it has ruined (Hood, Reba). And while it was used in Zero, it fits Zero.

Do you think these crash land segues are basically now something that is here to stay, such as the Wilson -~-^^~> Light?

I hope not!  I'd rather have no segues.

I think they are something we should all get used to.....I just hate it when they really rush it and it sounds forced....They could improve though....Doesn't really kill the show for me too bad as long as the songs themselves are played well....

I know it is a small thing considering the entirety of a show. I guess it bugs me because it comes off as unprofessional/unpracticed/unprepared. Throughout their history, segueing was something they turned into an art. And now I find myself lost in the music and then all of a sudden there is this crashing dissonance generally from Trey, everyone seems momentarily lost, it's chaos on stage and then the new song starts up..... and they then need 30 seconds so that they can figure out what the hell is going on. What makes it worse is that they are writing set lists now which means they could take a brief moment to say to each other prior to the show, okay these are the chord changes we are going to use to get out of this song and into this. It's not that hard....especially for world class musicians.
