This might have been the weakest of the shows so far. And that Ghost was great as was the Light. Not to mention the Boston Cream, but still somehow the weakest.

It's amazing that a show with as much greatness as this one had can be thought of as the weakest due to how well they've been playing this run.

So this was an interesting show.  Great moments abounded, but I kind of feel like they're running out of steam just a little bit.  Ghost felt like it left some money on the table, and Gotta Jibboo is long and was GREAT during the early jam, but didn't really do much for me towards the peak.  Didn't seem like they could hook up on anything.  Lots of Trey flubs, again.  Granted, he's playing a lot.  So i get it.  Page totally chopped the ending off Lizards outro jam one or 2 times early.... that still had legs as well.  So it goes. 

Frost after Sunshine of your Feeling was.... a strange call.  It was played magnificently, but holy hard left turn...

I actually liked Light too!  That was fantastic.  Tomorrow is certainly going to be interesting!

That Boston Cream segment was one of the best things I've seen this band do. Lots of smiles tonight.  :-D :phish: :banana:

The LivePhish.com page just lists that section of the show as Sunshine of Your Feeling and rolls all the Boston and Cream into one track.

<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.

Show crushed, energy in that room was through the roof.

I think it is clear they are tired, I had that thought last night, but nothing is taking away from the awesomeness that was that show. They are being as creative as ever, I thought the show flowed beautifully.
We are all and we are all we are

From the  ocean from the land from the
beginning to end
Backwards forwards back toward
we belong

Oh I liked it plenty!  I just thought it wasn't finished yet haha... I felt like that well of energy/creativity was not tapped dry yet, that it still had legs.  I wanted it to go back up one more time, or stretch that outro out a bit and get a little creative.  Same with Lizards.... i was totally feeling the outro jam going around at least one more time to really milk the feeling, but Page came in with the piano slide earlier than I was anticipating.  It just felt cut off is all.  Trey actually played that section flawlessly too!  Very impressed.  It's a great song when it's played correctly. 


On another note, Fishman has been killing it on drums lately.
