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?

That said, I basically disagree with all of this, but I acknowledge how divisive the Kasvot Vaxt set is. No big deal.

This comment and what @FunkyCFunkyDo wrote are spot on. This isn't constructive criticism, nor does it add anything substantive to the conversation. It just comes across as whiny.

Also, all of your criticisms relating to the lyrics fall flat because **THE LYRICS ARE SUPPOSED TO SOUND LIKE A POOR TRANSLATION** 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.
