PhinePhineMusic I really appreciated this review, and a lot of the comments below. I watched the webcast, largely confused and disappointed. This is really feeling like the jukebox era all over again, with very little trajectory to the set lists. Often, a song would start and I'd just think, "Why? Where is this gonna take us?" And it's not even because of the lack of Type II. There's a weird lack of focus in a few different senses.

And yes. It's unfortunate that we can't make this point without sounding like snobs, because OF COURSE we're snobs. But it's just so clear to me whether I'm reading the comments of a younger or older fan on these reviews. Whoever said it's really easy to have fun at ANY phish show hit the nail on the head. I don't think that you should be allowed to review a show in person, as weird as that sounds! We've all been there, disappointed after listening back to a jam we thought was a killer. The best shows sound better with age, stand up to the best of 30 years of music. I watched last night's show on my couch and couldn't help thinking, "No one would ever go back and listen to this again." Except maybe the Moma.

This tour has been scary. Fall 2013-Summer 2015 better not have been the latter-day peak. They've got plenty of time to figure it out, and we've seen them do it before! See you in Hartford. Hoping they're firing on all cylinders by then!
