"The hip sucked on that tour..."

Now, I'm not a slavish fan, they've gone way down Trouble at the Henhouse, 
but pray tell, how do you figure the Hip sucked on the first ARA tour? Cuz 
even today they are a force to be reckoned with live, and certainly with 
Fully Completely they were right at the peak of their recorded glory and had 
a ton of live energy.
Were you never a fan to begin with? I just have to know...
