Harponut Really enjoyed your review! I thought it was well written, entertaining and concise (which is a good thing imo). The problem with the big-three isn't that all three songs "suck." A one-song reprieve from the heavy, complex sequences a la the Feugo-Cities-Hurrah triumvirate is necessary to give balance to a show. The problem is jamming 'em back to back at the end of the second set. Musically, they're all similar: linear in nature and less complex (or nuanced) than the strongest parts of Phish's catalog.

What reeeeally bothers me is when people hate on 3.0 songs because there isn't the same feeling of nostalgia that's associated with the Bathtub Gin's and Mike's grooves of the world. They have too much music to always be happy with which parts of their catalog they tap for any given set. Enjoy the variety, enjoy the experimentation, enjoy the longevity.

See you out there this weekend! 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.
