The Jimi cover sounded like a High School band was playing.
So thin and lifeless.
Trey should chat with John Mayer.

Alas, it is true. That was terrible. Jimi deserves better.

But Drowned and A Song I Heard are weird and cool. And I was amused by Harpua.

We aren't really complaining about the acting quality in a Harpua gag, are we?
Also, Mary sounded fine from where I stood. Would have preferred the Bold as Love that I called, of course.

I thought Drowned was awesome.  I'll take a Harpua anytime, regardless of anything, I honestly just love the song itself
If this is love, I'm never going home..

Last night seemed like a really fun show. Spinning it now, really enjoying Trey's chops these days. He's not flub free, but he seems to be playing the composed sections of difficult tunes a lot better than in previous tours.

I really liked what I saw/heard.  missed most of the drowned jam and all of SIHTOS so missed a fair bit of the meat, but I liked what I saw.  No complaints from the encore here, but I was also half asleep.  My wife went and she said energy in venue was great.

Drowned and Ocean was the goods and paired very nicely with the CK5 action. It'll be interesting to hear how that plays on tape. Great vibe in the room and the 2001 dance party was oodles of fun.

Yup.  I thought it sounded like a kid taking guitar lessons playing hendrix.  Eek.

Why wouldn't we?

Also, they're my favorite band.

I didn't find the encore particularly bad sounding at the time, but also, I was there and psyched on the debut so....
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

Harpua was legit awful, rest of the show was awesome, especially Drowned > ASITHOS which was top 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.

Was hoping for a Machine Gun w/ sit in by Billy Cox.  The Wind Cries doesn't bode well for MSG.  Hendrix played it on his up and up, after he graduated to venues like the Garden he stopped playing it.  I'm sure he didn't play it live after '68. 

Drowned and A Song I Heard are weird and cool.

so....  Drowned > ASIHTOS.  I'm so glad that we have this band back.  This is incredible stuff, man.  It sounds so 2.0-y, in a healthy way.  I **Love** that they're dipping down into the energy spectrum and exploring and drawing out the chill jams and not forcing things to a rock peak.  Wonderful, wonderful stuff. 

Edit:  This also might be the best Esther in over 20 years....

I've always had a soft spot for Esther. Some people hate it, but I like that song.

People who hate spinning. I've always loved the muted strum sound (with the volume pedal) in the composed section of Esther
