fluffhead108 A classic Phish show, in the sense that the part of the community who judges based on big jams will be underwhelmed, and the part of the community that judges based on tightness of playing and setlist variety will be happy.

I personally find this to be a darn fine show. I was grinning like a fool at almost every song choice and thought Trey's tone, in particular, is right where I want it -- even if I would have preferred a little more breathing room on at least one of the second set tunes (I'm not a slave to 20 minute epics, but pushing the boundaries a bit on Ghost or NMINML would have been nice).

At the end of the day, you can talk about what the band played and what you wished they played. What they played last night was excellent, with little to be disappointed about. What you may wish they'd played is, of course, nonexistent, and therefore not an entirely fair complaint to hold against this show.

Regardless, a very strong opening to what should be an interesting and forward-looking year.
