@unoclay said:There are a small selection of decent GotF songs--sea of stars is acceptable (though I suspect the lyrics, which I can never hear, arent good) and the new one, Wader, was good in concert. But if you think the lyrics to Soul Planet, Soul Family, Drift Sleeping, or for that matter, More, Rise Up, etc....we probably come from different eras of phish appreciation. I generally could take any of these new songs if the lyrics werent so embarrassingly bad.Both Ghosts of the Forrest songs are terrible and need to be dropped STAT (genuinely, Drift Sleeping contains the lamest, cheesiest, and most sophomoric lyrics ever sung by this band--------paging Dr. T. Marshall, please come to the ER for a lyrical resuscitation ) but even in spite of this (now regular) strike against the set, the playing and jamming of virtually every other piece of the show felt above average.I’m not sure how you can totally rip the GotF material. These are two of the standout songs from the album, and Drift is a strong piece of musical composition. Unless you want more in the vien of Soul Planet or Set your soul Free...I’m pretty pleased with this stuff and thought it was executed better than most songs last night.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
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.
