Could you specifically point out the ragged sections in Petrichor? I was there in real time, relistened again today, I would need for you to point out those ragged moments, give me the time stamp if you could.This is exactly my take on fans' "understanding" of Petrichor. Same comment from the Alpha show this summer but while there I thought it was nailed hard, but was actually even played more accurately after relisten/rewatch of the webcast. It's unfamiliarity with the song, period, that people create issues from. That's my opinion of it. Maybe it's the lack of rain sounds that the album has but live performances don't that spark the "botched" or "errors" during Petrichor, I don't know x2.
This is what I hate/love about Phish fans. Viewed as a misread in ones eyes is viewed as a highly unlistened, unfamiliar song by most in another’s eyes. The unfortunate part is that Petrichor is an amazing, highly technical, orchestrated piece of music performed in an environment where people would typically be seated. So from that standpoint it will always be a misread because most can’t pick up what Trey is putting down.

And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
