J_D_G Fun recap.

Entertaining read, 100% appropriate for Phish.net blog, but poor expression of displeasure with the music. It's basically just name-calling, and then a weird assertion that the one song he likes is somehow "objectively" the best one. Huh?

This set sounds to me like Phish. And I for one will take the (accidentally?) poetic non sequiturs over the earnest Soul Cycle 10 times a day and 20 on Sunday. "I'm the glue in your magnet" is a fantastic facsimile of a "rough translation."

@The_Blob has it 100% correct, in my opinion:

"It's a good thing to have pieces showing differing views on certain acclaimed performances. At the same time, what's the use of posting an opinion on the blog without properly explaining said opinion? The author often just says something like "masterpiece of shit", "horrifying/terrifyingly bad song", "song that makes me want to kill myself", etc. without really explaining WHAT makes those songs so bad. Yeah, he often cites the lyrics, but I don't get how these lyrics are worse than Tweezer, or Reba, or whatever song Phish ever wrote in the 80's/90's. This is weird because he actually explains why the parts that he likes sound good to him, so why not give the same treatment to every song?"
