The irony here to me is how many people seem to think I didn’t have a good time at this show or didn’t find a lot to like about it. (The What’s the Use? was show stoppingly beautiful for me, for one, if that didn’t come across). Almost as if people are honing in on the critical moments and avoiding noticing the positive ones, as if something was at stake (it’s not). Your mileage may vary folks, and please don’t let one humble man’s opinion mar your enjoyment of the show, whether it’s posted here on the front page or not. Some things are a question of taste. Others less so, but I don’t think I’ll wade in that territory here. I will say that I feel far from jaded about this band, and anyone who’s read what I’ve written about them in the modern era knows how much I appreciate and enjoy what they’re still capable of. Just telling it like I see it. Believe it if you need it...
It’s almost as if some of us feel like your review of the show looked past the positive moments and honed in on the criticism. You can criticize the show fairly, but if many folks think it’s an above average standout 2019 show, we’ll come here into the comments and state our disagreement.

Just like you say here, don’t let your yuck ruin our yum, I’d like to say back to you: when you post a public opinion, you’re going to get pushback from those who disagree. And just like I don’t think it’s WRONG for you to think or say you thought it was a lopsided or rusty show with some hot mess mixed in, you shouldn’t think it’s WRONG of folks in the comments to state their disagreements with you.

I mean, the THX gag had me holding my side, texting my brother at setbreak, grinning ear to ear. The fact that you found it cumbersome shows that we get off in very different ways at shows. And that’s fine. And it’s fine for me to come here and mention that fact.
