Leaves, as a song, can pretty much suck it.

The jam seems to have potential though.
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

Pretty surprised they didn't play TTE last night. 

Will it stay on the shelf?

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Didn't love the second set, didn't seem to go as deep as some of the other nights, and the maple theme didn't bring any second set surprises...

I don't dislike Leaves at all, and as WTU said, the jam has a lot of potential
If this is love, I'm never going home..

This. I didnt' like it when they played it. But the jam was crunchy for sure.

That show was a whole lot of fun!  I actually loved all the ballads in the 1st set.  They could play all those songs and I'd love it.  The 2nd set was just perfect, although abandoning that SICK 3.0 funk groove in 46 Days for the Drums jam was a bit of a disappointment.  First time in 3.0 they've played a song faster than normal?  That 46 Days was out of control, Trey and Fishman pushing the tempo like crazy haha. 

Steep jam FTW though.  Holy fucking shit that ruled.  Also, POSSUM!  I knew when they started it that Trey was going to milk the shit out of the tension build in the middle.  Loved it. 

Super short encore was a little confusing though.

I like Leaves.
This!
I'm digging it... hoping I'll keep digging it.
No one really talking about that Golden Age? Shit stands up on a second listen. I mean I'm on board with the Steep for damn sure, and 46 Days was a rager, but that Golden Age...

During the opening lyrics to leaves, you could hear a pin drop in msg.  Heady attentive crowd.

This version of Crowd Control is wonderful.
That comment is likely to fall into the paug "Who gives a shit?' bucket - I think I am the only one here who likes Undermind on the whole - but it shows that as Phish pushes their long forms with various rates of success and failure, their short forms tighten up considerably.
Dysfunction and itemized lists of people’s failures are where it’s at.

I like Undermind, but I always skip Crowd Control.

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.
