Review by MKnapik

MKnapik @phish123 has a point. I’m inclined to agree. The folks who run this site might want to wait 48 hours or so before a rating can be submitted? Or allow half-stars? That way we are not forced to wade through shows with “padded stats” trying to find the true “diamond-in-the-rough”! The dizzying effects of a wicked-awesome show by The Phish are truly exhilarating! I’ve been there, phrends! YEAH! But, sometimes a little time spent in reflection and truly digesting what transpired may cast a more accurate light on the affair. In the end, it is all subjective. We all are entitled to our opinions. There is no right or wrong answer - there is only, and always will be: The Phish!

One undeniable thing about this show which does deserve mention (so this counts as a review and not the rant of some “jaded vet”) that second set is straight-up FIRE! You can’t deny the strength of that Tweezer sequence - more than once sounding like The Tahoe Tweezer (even without the egged-on “woo” section from last night). The very end of No Quarter is jarring it stumbles into Also Sprach on the official take - wonder what it looked like in person. It’s about to be 2019 and I still listen to The Phish almost daily since late 1991. They are the best! Thankfully, they don’t play their best show ever every night.
