Pat Buzby’s review:

„Judging from the reviews I've received, it seems that the run of shows in Spain and France is the lowpoint of a generally excellent May '88. However, Grenoble may be the best of this stretch. After a "Black Page" opener featuring the MAJNH solo (I can hardly imagine what the selection process must have been like for a cut like this), we get a reminder that the Trouble/Penguin/Hotel medley has changed in Europe from filler into an improvisational highlight, thanks to the 13 vamp in "Trouble," FZ's decision to vary things by letting Keneally take the "Penguin" break, and the dependably bizarre "Hotel" outings. Tonight's Secret Word ("hoop," later mutating into "poop"), apparently derives from a botched cue in "Penguin" just before the "hoop of real fire" line.
After a Secret Word-enhanced "Cosmik Debris," the "Dupree's"/"Cleveland" combo gives the expected supply of jazzy energy. (Another reason why this month is ahead of the others.) FZ's "Cleveland" break is one of the most substantial (or, at least, one of the longest) of '88. The rest of the set benefits from several unusual choices - "Filthy Habits," "Chawna" (wild sax solo), and the '88 debut of the old Tinseltown Rebellion fave "Easy Meat." FZ's solos on this last number never compete with the old versions, but the horns sound great in the "classical" section. "King Kong" offers a good Bruce solo and an extended episode of percussion/sound effect jamming, getting some nice musical textures out of the familiar array of samples before moving on to "Sharleena."
