Review by TimberCarini

TimberCarini Phans are often misguided about Phish in 1999, they call the jams "aimless" and the band disconnected due to drug usage. People are often afraid of what they don't know or understand, and resort to insults and name-calling. Phish did want to continue playing the '97 Funk Jams for the rest of time, they wanted to experiment and learn other styles. Most of 1999 was putting the Siket Disc out as a live performance on stage and is not the result of "rampant drug use" and a band "lost in the party scene." It was being creative with ambient jams and subtle textures. Almost nightly you could hear the band taking risks and getting wayyyy out there... if these shows were payed today, these same critics would be hailing the band for their incredible ingenuity.

Charlotte 7/7/99 - This is the PERFECT ambient jam filled show from the era. Many, many other shows from 1999 have jaw dropping ambient jams and entire sets filled with incredible ambient improvisational jamming, but very few have the complexity and continuity of this two-set apparition from the steamy underbelly of America.
