Jesus H. Icculus! Way to let the negativity almost entirely overtake your recap of a truly wonderful Phish show! Some of you are never gonna get over 2016 Phish it seems. I know I'm probably gonna sound like as much of broken record as you, but if you didn't notice how well the band was playing as far as composed parts and type I last Summer then I just don't think you were actually listening. I feel like after 2015, we finally had the band back in shape to a point where the music was simply enjoyable regardless of how much they did or didn't jam.

I'm sure you could accuse me of trying to stifle any criticism, but seriously do you think anyone wants to read all that in a review of a show that was as good as 7/15/17?

Yes. YES!! Why is it so difficult for people to understand that there's a difference between how well they're playing and whether or not they're playing exactly what you as an individual want to be hearing at a given time?! Phish 2016 dropped a lot of songs into second sets that didn't belong there, but to me that doesn't negate the fact that the Mann Hood or SPAC Hood sounded more 1.0-esque than any they'd played thus far in 3.0. I think that sort of thing is significant, and I'm not sure if others don't hear that, don't agree, or if they're just emotionally clouded by the fact that they don't like Tide Turns ;)
