Review by Ryan78

Ryan78 I’ve listened to a majority of the show on Sirius and clearly it was a show full of errors. That’s not a criticism because I don’t care about the errors. Just hard not to notice when listening to Axilla II for example or Fee or even Wilson where you catch some flubs. First set had its share as well. However, when Phish has a show with Glide, Col Forbins—>Mockingbird, Axilla Part II, etc…. they deserve a massive pass. With a setlist like that, they’re clearly making it a special night. One other comment that I know I am in the minority on, length does not equal greatness. Playing a 45min type II jam is crazy impressive and takes tremendous skill but in my opinion, just because something has beast like length does not make it a beast like jam. I have heard music from these guys that was incredible that lasted for 30 seconds sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, I love when Phish go into the unknown and take us out into the ether but I just think many fans are simply judging a jam by a stopwatch instead of what is going on. To each his own! My feeling is that I am just so grateful and appreciative that these guys are still out here touring and playing live music for us that I will stand and applaud them each and every night. They may stumble here and there but I couldn’t care less. They still hit those moments that make us come back time & time again. Maybe not as consistently as before but those moments are there. And when they happen, it makes it all worth it!
