unoclay fun writeup, i rarely read reviews since most of it is always positive fluffing, but i was curious about the way the rainout affected the gig. Good writing and summary.

Though i will soften my words and actual feelings, yes, to agree with a more blunt commenter above, Drift while you're Sleeping is one of the most embarrassing songs Phish has ever written--hence why people are leaving. I wish it was a parody song, written by some other band to mock hippies...but sadly, it isnt. Ive almost never rooted for a song to leave rotation, but this one...man, its so cringeworthy and sophomoric....i literally leave the room every time it's played. The very definition of a bathroom song or beat-the-crowds encore.

It's gotta stop. The mashup of gradeschool poetry and glued-together jamband sections....yarg. Makes me realize fish has gotten to a place where a lot of fans will automatically "like" anything the band puts out.

It burns...make it stop!

But your writeup was quite nice.
