Baba and Layla are right up there w SOYCD with regards to covers I do not want to hear at a show.

I love YAYA and Similar Skin.  The later is quintessential UM imo, multiple legos formed together to create an amazing song.  Bad Friday is okay, donít hate it.  No Diablo is a cute little song but I donít want to hear it at a show at all.

Just realized No Diablo has only been played once this year.

In related news, 2019 says "Thank God!!"

No Diablo is a well written song in general. Doesn't mean I want to see it at a show, but it's easily one of their best "radio-friendly" songs. Studio track is not bad at all.

Whoever said Phish has aged better than UM... I don't see it. If you said "Phish takes more chances in their older age than UM does in theirs" then I could probably agree with you. Maybe that's the same, I don't know.

lol Phish has not aged better

If Trey can play at 1994 levels of accuracy again I'll change my tune.  He's way too fucking sloppy.  UM still practices.

Miami Virtue is a fucking banger of a song.  They rarely nail it live, especially the vocal harmonies, and the jams that it spawns are all basically the same at this point, but it is still a song I always like seeing

I thought he meant the opposite, as in old Phish holds up better now than old UM does.

Especially when they give it a jam, Deeper is a fun song to hear live

The satanic voice in ResO is a part of UM$ character. It's not all unicorns + rainbows humor & darkness will always be present.

the "we C" part after those satanic vocals IS the ResOLuTioN

Some of their best originals are trashed on dis here BORT, and some of their worst covers are egregiously praised on dis here BORT.

A few examples of each?


Bad Friday
No Diablo
Similar Skin
Little Gift
You And You Alone (full disclosure - i didnít like this one at first...it grew on me)

Yeah those are definitely UM's best originals...  ::)

Come to think of it, your criticism is spot-on -  ďbestĒ may not have been the best word to use.

A better way of putting it might be that these originals are examples of songs that are very much under-appreciated.
