I can see this in terms of it being overbearing at times in the lates 70s (e.g. Estimated Prophet).I posted on the “Do you like the Grateful Dead” thread that I was a fan, especially the early 70’s, but when Jerry turns on the envelope filter, it’s an immediate turn off. I like virtually none of the songs where he uses it and I don’t want my guitar to sound like that!
But the more subtle use on those '77 Fires is objectively sublime.
