Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JazzRock/Fusion Teams
3 stars "Rift" was the second Phish album recorded for Electra, coming after the exuberant, but not very prog "A Picture Of Nectar". It's less energetic than the previous album, but there is more prog on it. But I still think I prefer the other album.

The prog begins a bit in Maze, and the intro to My Friend, My Friend, but really gets going in the excellent All Things Reconsidered (an obvious reference to the famous NPR news radio program, and it's catchy theme sons), and Mound.

The main drawback to the album is a relative lack of the type of jamming that made Phish famous, and draws the large crowds to their live shows.

Not bad, but not one of their better sets.

5 stars Ah, the early 90s. What a great time for weird music that was somehow 'commercial.' This was my introduction to Phish, and it led me to become a rabid fan...until they started making really horrid albums (Farmhouse, for example). As a diehard Rush fan, this was initially a challenging listen, since ... (read more)

4 stars Rift stands as (in my opinion) their strongest and most accessible album, even more than the "commercialized" Billy Breathes album. Some of their best work is found here, including the title track "Rift", which showcases Anastasio's brilliant guitar work. Other bright spots are "Maze", "Moun ... (read more)

4 stars OK, I hate jam bands for the most part. That whole Dead scene does not sit well in my ears. I used to associate Phish with the Dead. NO MORE! I was astounded by the technical prowess of these guys. This is not your average jam band. They definitely bring in Progressive Rock elements into t ... (read more)

4 stars Rift was the first Phish abum I ever heard and I still love it dearly 12 years after first hearing it. This was Phish's sixth album and fourth officially released. This is probably their last truly progressive album. Although their are elements of prog on all of their albums, I wouldn't cat ... (read more)

5 stars My personal favorite of all Phish's albums is Rift . A perfect example of what Art Rock should be . You notice I say Art Rock and not Jam Bands . This is due to the fact that while they are a Jam Band , extensively jamming at concerts . This album is a concrete,creative,complex piece of work , ... (read more)

4 stars For the casual listener, I reccommend the newer stuff like Farmhouse or the Story of the Ghost. For the progger, this is the finest Phish album in the catalog- even more so than their superb debut Junta. The band had been touring behind the highly eclectic A Picture of Nectar for months, and they ... (read more)
