Yeah, I'm in that camp too. I don't hear a big bump or a big decline in the quality and intensity of playing. I think the highs are just as high in 2013 as they were in 2012. I think the only argument that can be made for that is Dick's, which was obviously not as good in 2013 as it was in 2012. But that HAD to happen, eventually.
I don't agree with @nichobert that they have gone backwards since last year. I think they've continued to travel down the same road, honestly.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
