4 stars Song-for-song, this is Phish's best studio release. After the sub-par 'Hoist', we see the band focusing on more brief, structured song types (which allowed more room for improvisation live).

Although not a perfect album, this is a very strong release from start to finish. Of special note is "Theme From the Bottom" - check out the emotional crescendo the guitar solo builds up to, probably the most moving piece of music they ever composed.

This is a great pickup for anyone. It shows the band during their last peak, right before they went into a freefall decline with their studio stuff.
