aybesea I love this band... I mean... I really do. I've been following Phish since my first show in 1992, and I've been "hardcore" since 1993 when I first decided to do a tour. But that being said, it doesn't mean that I love everything that they do. Unfortunately, this is one of those shows that really doesn't work for me.
Overall, this show is lacking on song selection, replete with mostly shorter songs that don't really have a lot of room for improv. And the few songs that could be jammed out, generally aren't. Like I said, this show really isn't my cup of tea. Don't get me wrong, that's not to say that there's anything wrong with this show... it's just not my kind of show.
That being said, there are a few standouts here, and I really don't want to overlook them. The overall SAT score for this show is a less than stellar 891.74, with the major contributors being a strong Stash (108.51... very good, but not as good as St Louis) and Golden Age (171.90... an absolute must listen). There is also a brief, but enjoyable YEM (155.28), the new track Ruby Waves (64.45), and a well played Drift encore (56.59, if that's your kind of song). Other than that, I'm looking forward to Cuyahoga and putting this show in the rear view mirror. Let's hope that they got this out of their system for the tour.
