Am I the only one who is not a fan of Japan00?  Too mushy.

I think the consensus is that the Japan run shows are among the best of the year.


I'm in that boat, but this has to be one of my least explored years, so ymmv.

2000












meh
Who's the Marmar? I'm the Marmar!!!

If John Medeski was my church organist I would NEVER miss a Sunday....

Phish doesn't write beautiful music...the beautiful music happens after the written parts.

<gainesvillegreen> now, if they could get their sound to be as good as the lights, we'd have a band hee-yah!!

Music is what feelings sound like.

I think 2000 is, night over night, more consistent than what was on offer in 1999, but I have to admit I don't listen to 2000 all that much.
Dysfunction and itemized lists of peopleís failures are where itís at.

Seriously, 06-14-00 is in my top 10 phish shows of all time.

There is virtually no slop (which was occurring pretty often @ this point)

Cities has got the laid back space funk
Gumbo goes to the moon and back
BOTT has got to be the best version ever (I'd take it over Nassau 03)
Twist takes you on a laid back, psychedelic trip and is my second fav. version ever (only to Island Tour)
The Fukuoka Jam is some of the trippiest, funkiest pure Phish improve out there.

Pretty darn solid versions of Carini, SOAM, and 2001 as well imo.

well said, I too love Fukuoka and Japan 00. 

I enjoy particularly Caravan's tour narrative of Japan 00.  The delight of seeing Phish in another culture, kudos.

I disagree with this statement 110 percent.

I've already posted it in this thread but after a 6-pack and listening to it again I have to re-state it GHOST - 5-22!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

I agree with Radio City MH 5-22-00.  The Ghost is phenomenal!

Alpine Valley 7-8-00 is a super solid show from start to finish.

Roseland 5-23-00 is essential as well.

is there an example of some slop? sorry for the lame question.

I dunno. There are moments but I did a lot of that summer tour (TO, Star, Creek, Polaris....) and heard tight playing night after night. I would look to the fall run of 2000 for the sloppy playing that WTU is speaking of but there are still a couple tight numbers in there that are not to be discarded (9-14). Personally, I really enjoyed summer 2000 but I think that is because I like to dance and IMO summer 2000 was really dancy.........so sue me.

I'll give you a prime example of slop. Trey forgetting the words to Esther in Vegas. And the night before they had Kid Rock as a guest. I was not amused.

love that Esther flub.

The flub actually came earlier, when someone decided to film something in Las Vegas and then later release said video, violating the motto

I totally agree...summer 2000 was tits...the majority of shows were solid w/ a few nice bustouts & some big jams...some of my faves were 6/24/00...6/28/00...6/29/00...7/3/00...7/4/00...7/6/00, & 7/12/00

The best shows in 2000 that I heard....were the tapes of shows from 1998.   :evil:


But the Japan run was pretty solid.  There were some good shows throughout summer.  Deer Creek run was pretty tight and a lot of fun to be there.
