Review by desmondthefamilyberzerker

desmondthefamilyberzerker While this show has definite splashes of brilliance I left MSG thinking something was a bit off. The first set was honestly one I'll probably never listen to again, and while I try not to harp on miscues or flubs, there were simply far too many throughout the night. Particularly in Sand, Vultures,Axilla, Golgi, Horse>Silent,. And let's be honest, all the songs I just mentioned that were played in the 2nd set are songs I never want to see in the heart of a second set. Do You? I had a great time at this show. The Piper>Twist, Bowie, 2001, and Divided sky were all quality moments. Piper and 2001 in particular. But the band seemed a bit off and Trey seemed particularly jumpy. The sound in MSG seemed a bit more inconsistent than in years past all 3 nights I attended and particularly off on this night....where I was anyway. Maybe that had something to do with it. 2011 was a great year for Phish. I thought they found a good balance of tight playing, setlist flow, song rotation, and exploratory jamming this past summer. But something wasn't quite there at MSG this year.
