    Trey F's up his solo and really doesn't play it the same anymore. I just can't get over that for some reason. My issue, I know
    Not just your issue, I'm often baffled at how he can play a complicated bit and then 2 minutes later butcher a part that a first year guitar student could play. It makes me laugh when I read on Phish boards "Trey played flawlessly last night". That's never happened in the history of Phish, it's just the places he goofs up are different now.

    Right! He'll play a flawless Reba or Fluffhead and then jack up the solo to Horn. It'd be interesting if the band chose three epics per tour and practiced this shit out of them and excitement was built among the fans as to what they will be and where they will be played. Then the band could play all the jammed out 3.0 stuff. Kind of like Rush busting out Jacob's Latter after 3 decades.

    Listened to the first set from last night, really good stuff. Dammit though, I love Theme and Maze, not much chance of hearing them when I go to the Forum show on Friday.

    That's a really good point. In the 90s it was ok that he messed up a bit here and there because most of the time he nailed it. Man, seeing Divided Sky, Mikes, Reba, Rift and It's Ice in the same set and Trey absolutely tearing it and flawlessly. The kids these days are a little deluded about the Trey. I totally agree. I used to think the same about the Dead. People saying this or that song was transcendent when it was obvious Garcia was about to fall over!

    Great show last night. They finally jammed out Tube again, Reba was well executed, and Harry Hood was arguably one of the best they've played in years.

    Trey's sounded very good, too bad it was last night of the tour.

    I went to the Forum show on Friday, it went like I thought it would: they played OK, not great, the setlist was just OK, they left it on the floor in San Francisco. I watched the stream last night, very enjoyable show.

    Kind of a strange tour, there were some real highlights, but they also didn't play well at times. Things seemed to gel at The Gorge, I'm going to try and do a more extended run next year.

    I'll be at Charleston and Jacksonville.

    I booked my Charleston hotel across the street from the stadium a couple of weeks ago based off of rumors...glad I did since it sold out almost immediately once dates were announced. Should be fun. Stadium is General Admission which is perfect for indoor Phish shows.

    Just listened to Rift again for the first time in years. What a great album!

    If you never got the appeal of Phish, I suggest trying Rift.

    I loved the 2014 release, "Fuego". Thought there were many "proggy" and "Canterbury" moments on it.
    I do like the music accompanying the new album announcement too-

    "Breath And Burning" link-

    "I wrote this song on the beach after our three-night run in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico last January," Anastasio tells NPR Music in an email. "I loved watching the faces of all the people dancing and splashing in the ocean while we played. I kept thinking, 'This will all end sooner or later, one way or another. So I'm gonna enjoy every last second of it while we're still here. I'm not gonna wave away the dessert cart on the Titanic. I want to be like that string quintet that kept playing while it sank."

    It still has the best "serious" songs Trey and Tom Marshall have written, I think.

    "Petrichor", the thirteen and a half minute orchestral suite that closes the new album, Big Boat, is something I bet lots of people here would love.
