Review by phishymike

phishymike I am 34 and been a Phan since 93'.

After attending 8 and listening to the Halloween set several times I am ready to give my opinion. Overall, I think the band sounded great and I loved the Exile choice. Yes, the energy was there big time and I could tell the boys were enjoying themselves. I am trying to not sound negative about this review because I was pleased with the set. I just get frustrated when people get all crazy and say it was SICK and the BEST EVER! IMO, Quadrophenia was better and I think I like Loaded more as well. Remember, this is my opinion. I realize that Exile tells a story of the band, but it didn't have the same story feel that Quadrophenia had. IMO, Phish should have chosen an album with more of an overall vibe. Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings were awesome and they sound great on the sbd. Loving Cup is for sure SICK! I really enjoyed Fish on the songs he sang, especially Sweet Virginia.

3rd set was tight...great songs.

Suzy sounded amazing, but I found it to be too predictable. Sorry, but I expect more from this band on such a big night.

Go ahead and axe me if you wish!
