Look, maybe you just don't think pointing out those things is important or that the flubs have zero impact on your enjoyment of a Phish show. That's perfectly valid! And part of me even agrees with you (to a point, anyway). But then why do you want to read a review at all?
To review the review, natch...

Solid clickbait material right here! Reviews that focus numerous passages on the band's errors are especially fun when they overlook important components of a great performance. I always know i can't wait to read the comments and then the defensive responses to the comments. You all did not disappoint.

The idea of the band shelving huge chunks of their catalog because they don't play the songs perfectly is not getting my approval by a long shot, but what do i know, perhaps i am suffering from "Stockholm Syndrome" if that's when technical perfection is secondary to the celebration of the moment.
