Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but if anyone gripes about furthur while holding phish up on a holy grail in the same post...well I think I could gripe about that.

phish is so great?? Go to a phish show then.

I thought I already answered this, but maybe I wasn't clear enough.

Q: Why not?
A: Because they don't mean diddly-squat to my experience, and matter of fact, when they inhibit my view of the band, they actually take away from my experience. Music is all. Everything else is nothing.
You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?

I do not think I can ever remember leaving a show saying, "Wow what a light show" Never crossed my mind.

too bad you missed wsp nye, you would've said exactly that.

lights add to to the experience. to say otherwise is incorrect.

That's a personal experience though..I've been caught up in the lights multiple times before. Other times, it's irrelevant, and the music is so powerful (lights or no lights). I've seen both sides, so I can't say a show with lights or without lights is better its just different, practically everywhere I go

I would say that any GD/TOO/Ratdog/The Dead/P&F/Furthur show I've been to (with or without lights) is better than any phish show ever, period.

i'm in the camp of i don't care about the light shows. i never notice them.

i liked the backdrop from november 2010 midwest/east tour.

some tie dye and plain lights do the job just fine.
who else is gonna bring you, a broken arrow?

I just think they should speed up the tempo of 'Days Between' a little bit. That's all for me.
