I'm not sure why you'd hate on the Fish vocals.....

Well basically because they are terrible.

Same, so stoked to give it a listen and then couldn't even make it through.
I'm sure I would have been pumped had I been in the room but listening at home was painful.
I'm sure Trey or Page would have done that tune far more justice.
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.

I was pumped to be couch touring it. The ambiance in my batcave was perfect for it; low lights, smokey haze and IPA's. I loved it. That said, I haven't given it a second listen yet. I'm sure it won't translate as well in the recording.

My big gripe with the vocals was mostly that the volume was too high, honestly would have been fine if the vocals were just a lot lower in the mix

IMO, it is arguably the best/coolest cover they've ever done, too..  Which is part of the reason I'm bummed about the levels

Still very cool though

Shout/out to the paug lurkers who caught me pauging pre-show. They were sitting behind me and saw it on my phone.
Good times

Thoroughly enjoyed dancing next to you for this show man. Thanks for sharing some space, incredibly enjoyable evening.
I can review this show in one word. Outstanding.

I had no gripes w/ Fish's vox. One of the coolest covers they've ever done imo
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

Yeah this.  I think you guys are all just jaded lol.  But seriously, we know Fishman's vocals aren't good.  That's the charm.  To me it makes perfect sense for them to have him sing Radiohead.  Radiohead is so serious.  Phish is not.  It's the perfect juxtaposition.  I listened to it again yesterday and still loved it. 

It's all about the energy, Brad.

Some dude drops his phone from the balcony and the guy below tosses it back to him without a stop in the recording.



That's some Jedi shit.

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.

It's true.
