Jestinphish I used to love reading the reviews on this site... and participating in the comment section after said reviews. Now I check jambase for the skinny and setlist. Tired of the noob/vet/"jaded-clown" bs that pervades these reviews nowadays. I just want to know if anything was ungodly stellar and I need to listen to it right away. I could give two shits if you hate BDTNL or head to take a piss every time Waiting All Night is played. In my 20+ years of listening to Phish I have never not listened to a show because of a review I have read. Much like some could tell me they don't like dukgalbi. It means nothing to me until I've tried it myself. However, if someone raves about a song or certain segment of the show, I may head there first. Not normally, as I prefer the "journey not the destination" mentality, but there have been several times in the past where a review has made me head directly to a certain point in a show when I listen. I've started meandering now, but I just really didn't care for a good batch of the reviews I read this year. Personal opinion.

On a side note... "noobtarded".. come on man. Get some thicker skin. When I was a kid a popular saying was "sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me". What happened to that?
