Review by ThomasFunkyEdison

ThomasFunkyEdison Natem, that's where opinion comes into play. I went to 19 shows this year and saw maybe 17 shows that I would rather have seen than any of these Miami shows. That doesn't mean I "don't like phish," as you say, it just means that different things turn me on and tune me in than you. I've been to my share of shows that while in the grand scheme of things weren't "top shows," were fun to be at because of the energy. I personally loved SB1 despite popular opinion being vehemently against mine. To say that I don't like phish because I don't find the last 3 nights particularly inspiring isn't a fair thing to say. There have been moments of absolute brilliance this run, but to be honest, it has been a very slow run with very little experiment.

How much fun one has at a show is completely different from how the music is. Again, all opinion. And if you actually knew me, you'd know that it takes *a lot* for me to say anything negative at all about this band, but in MY opinion, it wasn't worth the money to be here. Yes there was a solid 25-30min of good jamming on NYE, yes there was a solid WG last night (but c'mon, the woos fucking suck more than TTE), but it's not the same as even a pre-Randall's or even fall tour phish.

I don't care if they jam, as long as they have a good song selection to make up for it. The line, number line, velvet sea, and caspian are not the songs that I would personally like to hear in place of any legitimate exploration. Again, that's just my personal opinion.
