You're all avoiding the question: How was the Caspian?

Great!
Even PG loved it and he has sworn allegiance to the glory that is Caspian for all time.

Nans.

Yeah, if the magnaball caspian didn't change his opinion I don't think this one will.
You're entitled to your opinion but I'm going to laugh at it.

It's like BJ Galore over here!

Not sure if I believe PG is on the fuckerpants train, but if so I love it!

Great show, a little something for everyone, place was exploding at many many points.  The Radiohead theme in the 2nd was perfect. My wife however is a huge RH fan and probably needs to seek counseling with Aug after hearing fish take on those vocals.

I'll take the whole second set as a highlight!
We are all and we are all we are
Far flung bits of Sun and bits of Stars
From the  ocean from the land from the
beginning to end
Backwards forwards back toward
we belong

My so is a RH fan too. "Why the fuck didn't they pick Leo to sing this one?"

(Side note: she has trouble enough with  :phish: vocals in general, except for Page that is. She actually prefers his version of Loving Cup over the Stones original. Sacrilege!)

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

My wife only likes tolerates Page's voice. I actually got her to listen to the studio version of Strange Design all the way through once.

This is actually a pretty great Caspian. Therefore, I accept your claim of PG's conversion as truth, and look forward to his essay recanting all past uses of "fuckerpants" to denote it.


Except for the part where Fishman is singing, Everything In Its Right Place is cool, and I like how they bring it back throughout the set.

Another hot second set. This band. Damn.

I'm not sure why you'd hate on the Fish vocals.... it's totally perfect for him to sing this for Phish.  It's funny and silly and the chaospad makes it so awesome.  I love it.  Hope they play it again.  Would be cool to hear Leo do it though, if you're looking for "correct" vocals.  If you're looking for absurdy, holyshitPhishisplayingRadiohead, then Fish makes sense to me.

Caspian is great.  The ambient jams this tour have been a nice augmentation, in frequency and artistry.

I concur.  Although I kind of feel like Trey fell back into the forcing of jams/next songs last night, which is something I was afraid would happen.  The end is in sight... gotta keep the show moving, rather than thinking "Hey, we've got 9 more shows to play here.  We can take our time!"

Fishman was ready for that Caspian to go further, as evidenced by him going to the marimba.  But then Trey brought in Fluffhead.  Even the Caspian start was a little rushed.  Mike played this SUPER fucking cool lick, and Trey ignored it and started Caspian.  Wasn't listening!

Well basically because they are terrible.
