I think all of these things are going to get worked out, playing in the studio and playing in front of thousands of people are two very different things, not that I have a great deal of experience in the latter, but with time these issues I think will get ironed out and won't be an issue for them.  I don't think PH is anything we have to worry about, but it certainly isn't going to be exactly like the mid-90's, that's what we and they would like to happen, but I don't think it can ever be that again.  It's going to be great, just different.

I'm pretty confident the jams are coming.   Give it time.   I'm sure that the Bonnaroo late night night set will be sick jam after sick jam.  I had a dream about that set- the Giant Country Horns were in it :banana:

I'll be honest...I didn't really like much of last night's show.
Tonight is gonna be the one that everyone talks about after the run.
a


You know...  I absolutely agree with you.  Last night was sick, but...  well...  okay, Friday night was a straight B+ right across the board.  Everything tight, everything spot on, but not a lot of jumping off.

Saturday night, however, had higher highs (Split, Antelope, Ghost) but lower lows.  Punch and Hydrogen were botched, which is okay...  i can forgive that for nerves and just getting lost in the moments (the Punch intro was pretty tight though) but Piper, I thought, was....  quite blah.  Very little energy.  We'll have to see how the tapes are.  Trey started singing really early, and he tried, but never got the tempo up to where Piper is comfortable. 

However, Saturday's first set was absolutely fucking BONKERS.  Bonkers, I tell you!!!  Red lights all over the place...  that was downright evil.  Its Ice, Split, and Antelope took us straight to hell and back.  That Split was disgusting.  I'll never forget the sight of Slim, with his arms out, like...  "petting" the music, i guess...  i dont even know what to call what he was doing, haha, but it was great.  One of my favorite mental snapshots of the weekend. 



It is official that we're back in 1995, though...  tons and tons of songs per set, and Halley's and Gumbo were each under 5 minutes, if that tells you something, lol.

Interesting that you say that, because I agree with you, up until the "change".  It was definitely going nowhere fast, and then all of a sudden, they kind of like...  just clicked it into gear, and raged the ending.  And I quote Birdman "That may be the best thing they've played all weekend."

so after 5 years of waiting i finally got to see phish and i definitely got caught up in the giddiness of it all, especially the fact that i got to be about 15 feet away for the first set but man...i was actually disappointed with some song choice and tightness.  PYITE was bad, mexican cousin is on my low low list of songs i wanted to hear and reba, THE one song i was dying to hear live lacked the emotion i was hoping for.  I hate to be this critical after this being my first show and given the pressure im sure trey was feeling.  I guess maybe i got my hopes up too high.  HOWEVER...second set was very enjoyable for me at least i thought ghost was THE best song they played last night and while the length of the jams wasnt up to par with past versions(Mike's was WAY too short) i thought the segues were well done and song choice was great.

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.

ok, so from the perspective of not being there and not having the energy of a show surrounding me....

i'd say these shows are very meh... night 1 was a butcher shop IMO.  fluff & divided both had cringe worthy moments.  to their benefit it got better as the night went on, and the YEM was pretty hot.

i'm keeping an open mind, but i'm guessing this 2nd night isn't even the best PH show.  as Aug says, paper tiger... yes, its a fantasy set, but there are ZERO jams.

phish ain't back if they can't jam...

sorry to sound negative, but i think this thread and this board need a reality check

yuck.  this is what i was afraid of.  fwiw, i haven't listened yet.
