After an always rousing Prowler comes an Uncommon with a unique (uncommon, if you will) extended improvisational take. Smell the Mitten is another in the arsenal of Spinal Tap references across the Umphrey's McGee catalog. To close is another improvisation laden Padgett's Profile that sees the band traversing several moods before dissolving into Thin Air.

All Things Ninja, a concert rarity these days, ventures into some of the more dark and dissonant territory that UM can explore. The closing combination of 2x2 and Phil's Farm mark the podcast debut of these two songs that have been staples of the repertoire since the earliest days in 1998.
