Quote from: Jaimoe on Mar 31, 2011, 10:52 PMI think they are a good, if not erratic, studio band. I like some of their albums, or used to, quite a bit. Their early stuff meanders too much (eg. A Picture of Nectar), but I think Billy Breathes and Farmhouse are excellent. I'm no fan of their last three efforts, Round Room, Undermind or Joy. Regardless, I still won't be slapping BB or Farmhouse on while I work out or host a party. I'm also tiring fast of all second/third generation jam bands such as Phish, moe. (I actually think they suck), Gov't Mule (which pains me since I'm still a staunch Allmans fan), Galactic (see moe.), Umphrey's McGee etc... I'll never tire of the ABB or Dead though.
Quote from: walterfredo on Mar 31, 2011, 04:05 PMI've never been a fan of any of their studio stuff but still really enjoy seeing them live. Things were getting pretty bad musically in 04 before they called it off. Coventry was an embarrassment. I think I've seen about 25 shows in 09-10 and have really enjoyed myself at all of them. But...I keep my expectations in check, I think that's essential. Nothing will be like the summer of 1998 for me. (but I don't expect them to be).

This is where a lot of the "hate" comes from: people comparing phish with the dead, or saying phish in the same sentence with the dead. phish isn't in the same league with the dead. neither is widespread panic, who I don't really like either, but I do like better than phish.argue all day until the cows come home about your favorite hippy-dead-wannabe-jam- band, but please, for the love of god, leave the grateful dead out of that discussion.

Announce the Alpine dates, please! I'd like to do Super Ball just because I've never done one of their fests. But we'll see.
Quote from: johnnYYac on Apr 02, 2011, 04:48 PMI'm not sure why, but I've never seen Phish live, in person, via video, even audio recordings. I own one Phish album, Joy, which I haven't listened to much. I just can't get excited about 'em. Sounds like many of you would say I lack proper experience or exposure to their music, especially having not seen them on stage. Fair enough. I wouldn't say no if they showed up locally and it was convenient, but I haven't caught the Phish bug. :-\
