Review by bushwood_a_dump

bushwood_a_dump A standout version of BOAF. Really! And I like where they are starting to take Wingsuit. It is really a strong tune.

But the overall slow but steady foothold that the Trey/TAB ballad/singer-songwriter tunes are gaining in Phish sets these days is a disturbing trend for me. To that point, that isn't why I listen to Phish. There are many, many other artists (both active and from days of yore) that do that much more effectively and in better context. One, may two, a show to cool things down? Sure. 5 or 6 night? Sorry. The juxtaposition of these simple songs against the more layered, complex pieces gets lost when more are played.

And the Farmhouse - Hydrogen swap in the 4th quarter was just a head scratching turd in the punch bowl. 5 shows left on the tour. What will our favorite band bring to round out this swing?
