mattybweston Wonderful, even handed review David - I guess that new clipboard came in handy pretty quickly.

Cacophonous, intense, challenging. The question you posed about whether the set was enjoyable and your answer (I think so?) mirrored our couch tour experience exactly. I'd add that nearly every artist that soldiers (ha!) through a long career creates at least one experimental, inaccessible album - I'd list some but inevitably they will be someone's favorite (one man's trash is another man's treasure...). We were happy to provide the space for this band to experiment and admire the big swing they took. The spectacle combined with the music felt overwhelming and multiple relistens so far hasn't moved the needle on my feelings about almost all of these tracks landing somewhere in a traditional Phish set. But it's not my band and it would by myopic to think that we'll love every single song in the catalog.

It's a genuine miracle that this band is 1. still together; B. still creating new material and; 4. still evolving. Every tour, every show is a blessing - I'll get what I get and not throw a fit.

Stay safe and see y'all on tour.
