Well look at you, you get some of that laser money and now you're looking down on people who don't have cars?!? You've changed, man. :wink:

Also, what Hicks said.

Maybe the guy hates rankings because he got failing grades in English.

I see you aren't familiar with the films of Matthew Broderick.

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.

I think trying to juxtapose Magnaball to the rest of the tour isn't really fair in that the drive in set pretty much obliterates everything else they did in terms of improvisation.  Outside of that, I thought they were good shows, and on par with everything else they did this tour.  This is literally the most consistent tour of the past 15 years.  They didn't hit a wall like last summer, or struggle to find a groove like tours before either.  I thought right out of the gate they were firing pretty well.  The anomaly to me was the Texas run.  That felt more like the 3.0 of old, and outside of that.  I was pretty happy with how this tour unfolded.  In my opinion this tour had the highs of Summer '03 without even touching the lows of Summer '03, the playing is way more consistent than 2.0 now, and with the added dimension of improvisational exploration I think they are finally getting back to the levels of music they have always been capable of making.

I agree with your placement of MPP1 that show felt special and after relistening its a very listenable show from beginning to end.
Nashville as well.
The texas run, I feel they were just laying groundwork, pretty new territory for 3.0 and it seems like they play really good shows at historic venues they love now, not just the one off out of the way shows anymore like they did in 1.0

I haven't listened to the whole tour but I actually have a pretty tough time even ordering my 8 attended shows.

Magna 2&3, MPP1 and Mann2 were all killer shows.
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.
