The outro telephone conversation of Young Lust is revisited the following night in Syncopated Strangers just before they start that patiently developed "Jimmy Stewart". We close out our look back at November where we started, at the Barrymore, with the much talked about Tribute to the Spinal Shaft featuring the "Cemetery Stew" rumored to now be a song in progress. After a long overdue revisit to the Beastie Boys' instrumental Groove Holmes, the band approaches terminal velocity with a climactic finish.

The "Jimmy Stewart" that follows is a fine example of a few simple ideas coming together to form a 'song' in the moment, with melodies sure to be stuck in your head for days. Divisions is a spring board for Umphrey's to cover a wide array of genres and styles, everything from a Bill Frisell-ian stroll through I Heard it Through the Grapevine, a quick stop in the dirty funk of Dump City, a foray into some minimalistic post-rock, and even a tribute to Motley Crue.
