ColForbin Phish makes a lot of money playing music - they aren't your buddy at an open mic night who you should feel guilty about criticizing. They are professionals who can and should play their songs well, and I think that @bertoletdown has some interesting commentary on why Phish doesn't, and how they could improve things if they wanted. It's unfortunate that some of you see this type of criticism as an attack on the fun you had at the show or your enjoyment listening, but the flubs are objective facts, and they do negatively impact the experience of many listeners, both at the show and on the couch. A well-played Vultures is a beautiful thing, the type of music that got me into Phish in the first place. A poorly played Vultures is, well, not.

I had a blast listening on the couch last night, even with the rough patches. It was a great weekend of shows and I think it bodes well for the rest of tour. But it would have been even better if the band nailed all the tricky composed sections, right? That's all we're saying.
