Col_Radicones_Ascent Couch touring until Curve Ball but here are some things that I have noticed. Yes, this has been a very sloppy tour. This being due to, like the author said, because of a HUGE repertoire and technical issues with the rig. Does it bother me? Heck yea with one of the more egregious failings in How Many People Are You which is a song I rather enjoy cuz it's just a straight up balls to the walls rocker, and sadly it seemed like Mike forgot his own lyrics (theme of the summer tour, mixed up lyrics).

I like the idea of Phish letting the crowd sing and the Sleeping Monkey from the forum was just goosebump inducing. If they want to let us sing than I'm cool with it ( like the acoustic tour). But seeing the boys unable to grapple their material is a bummer. At least it's not due to drug addiction like 2004 or Summer 2016 where they just didnt want to step out of their comfort zone/ internal tensions while recording Big Boats. Notice the newer songs have easier lyrics and structure to them but can still blast off.

I am very much in both camps here...I agree it's frustrating to hear the flubs but I still try to have a good time and still love the culture behind this band and all you good pholks. Be critical but also remember Phish is like pizza...(if you dont like it Phuck off and eat Subway)... but seriously Phish is still better than a majority of mainstream music out there and have inspired equally riproaring bands to keep an eye out for.

Keep having fun everyone! 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.
