Camera work is fine and the show is very good. Loved summer 2010 and Deer Creek > Alpine was the peak and this show and the excerpts from the following night are fine examples of outstanding Phish 3.0. Still wish they would have released Deer Creek instead though.
Like Phish? Don't believe the negative reviews and get this. The Reba jam will melt your face.
I went down to the guitar store... ;D
The video looks great too...since they split up the show over 2 DVDs, there is little artifacting or compression that is noticeable, so the picture quality is really strong as well. Also, I love the camera work, which other reviewers complained about. It's fairly steady, and there aren't the crazy cuts that you see on other modern concert DVDs.
Great set...and the music! In my opinion, the band had an amazing 2010, and this set and the Utica DVD set are welcome additions to my collection.
The value here is in the music, the audio. What others have said is generally on target. The video is just not good. The audio, however, is not as bad as some have made it out to be. If you are like me and have a high quality (i.e., audiophile) two-channel system with no capabilities for surround sound, you will have to change the audio to 2-channel when you insert the DVDs. The default is 5.1 which sounds just absolutely horrible on a 2-channel system. Once I did that and compared the CDs, they are similar. I suspect that many have submitted reviews before realizing that they were listening to this show in 5.1 on a 2-channel system. That said, the audio is far from audiophile quality, even on the CDs.
So much for commenting on production quality. As for the music, this is a really fun show, with some great extras thrown in from the next night. (The Ghost, for example, is short, taught, and powerful!) Still, there is much better phish out there. I suspect this set will not be staying long in the possession of any phish head who already has a good supply of other music to listen to. Fun for those who enjoy phish, but far from a must-have.

While being at this show, the DVD does it complete justice, as usual, Phish rocked it. Definitely worth the buyPublished on January 26, 2014 by Kristen H
Awesome set list and a good production of a concert that turned out to be one of the best nights of my lift. Great selection for them to release. The What's the Use? Read morePublished on March 8, 2013 by Sim City Sucks
I own Utica, coral sky and this. The guys seem sober, sharp and on the ball. A perfect snapshot of Phish 3.0. Highly recommended.Published on March 30, 2012 by BrandonC1987
Great show, great sound, great video. Felt like I was there all over again. I highly recommend this DVD if you were at the show (or even if you weren't)Published on December 1, 2011 by motts
