I have tried many times in the past to get into Phish. No luck. My wife is a casual fan, and I have a buddy who loves them. Saw a Trey solo performance with him. Meh. So I’ve heard a lot, but never liked it. Always saw the talent, just not my thing.

But we all have lots of extra time now, and having read the last couple pages of this thread, I put this on today while cleaning out my fridge and doing some chores. My wife really loved it, and for the first time ever, I am excited to listen to a Phish album for a second time tomorrow. I did NOT like “Shade” at all. But the rest of this album did not sound like the Phish I’m used to. I think Leaves & A Life Beyond the Dream are my 2 favorites on first listen but I will definitely have this in the rotation for a bit.

:thumbsup: The only two I don't like are Steam and Thread, both of which sound a lot more like the jammy Phish stuff I've never enjoyed.

These both flirt with getting dicey for me as well but I really like the surprising heaviness that shows up a bit in “Thread” - with just a few minor tweaks there are parts of that song that could be Tool

For those of you who just started liking Phish, do keep in mind that the following is a rough summary of one of their songs:

Quote:
“The Lizards” contains a lengthy narrative that describes Colonel Forbin’s entrance into the land of Gamehendge and his encounter with Rutherford the Brave, a knight errant. Rutherford explains the sad history of the Lizards and their subjugation by the evil King Wilson, who keeps them in check by preventing them from gaining access to the Helping Friendly Book, the sacred tome of Icculus, their god. In a state of overzealous fervor while engaging the Colonel’s promise to help, Rutherford jumps into a river and sinks, forgetting that he was encased in metal armor. As the story goes, Tela and the Unit-Monster show up just in time to save Rutherford from the watery peril, and Colonel Forbin is thus introduced to the land and inhabitants of Gamehendge.

Here's another (and this is one of my favorite Phish songs!):

Quote:
In the Gamehendge story, Wilson is a traveler from another land who arrives in Gamehendge looking to take over the entire land from the largely communist Lizards. Mighty lofty ambition for a single person, you may say, but these Lizards are pretty stupid. Wilson realizes that the Lizards rely almost entirely on the Helping Friendly Book, a single, mystical volume given to them by their god, Icculus, and that contains all of the knowledge inherent in the universe. Wilson is a keen thinker, and he steals the book, putting the Lizards at his mercy. He swings his heavy, domineering hand in vicious, sadistic circles over the entire land of Gamehendge. He tears down a huge chunk of the forest and builds an immense, glowering castle, naming the city that encircles it Prussia. He enslaves the Lizards both physically and mentally, and maintains this control by stowing the Helping Friendly Book in the highest tower of his new castle. At one point, Wilson hangs a young revolutionary for treason. This young rebel was Roger, the son of Errand Woolf, the leader of the rebellion against Wilson. The song "Wilson” is sung (read: angrily yelled) from the viewpoint of Errand Woolf, in a fit of rage at the rebel camp, shaking his tightly closed fist at Wilson’s castle looming in the distance.

I will not be silenced! You're worse than Wilson.
