Here's a TL;DR version - Cypress is probably in the top 1% of Phish shows ever played, but competition gets pretty stiff in that upper level, and between the long jams that tend to lean towards homogeneity, the unavoidable, but still mentionable lack of setlist flow (seriously, you guys that scream about Joy popping up mid-set would do well to think about how this set is structured), and just my own personal bias that December 1999 was not particularly a peak for the group, I don't think this show is any sort of contender for best ever. On tape, of course. I'm not going to argue with anyone that was there and says it's the best show ever.
