Carini

, comment by CreatureoftheNight , attached to 2017-09-01
CreatureoftheNight Rarely does the cover art of the show fit the music perfectly, but it sure does for this version of Carini. The opening distorted fuzz brings the spacecraft to a landing. By 8:30, the bay doors open, the aliens descend and fire off a few ray guns to clear the area. Weird effects from Page signals the transition to bliss land, arriving at 11 minutes. Mike is especially active and punchy weaving his way around the landscape. At 13 minutes, the hose is being turned on to cleanse the urban landscape with goo.
So far, things have been up to par with good phish, but everything after this is top shelf. The band is purely in the zone. When I looked around on the floor, everyone I saw was in rapture. No distractions or wandering focus. It seemed as if all of us were united in in our pursuit of levitation. The mothership had lifted off and was conquering the entire planet.
The funky breakdown at 19 minutes made me think of Steam, Undermind, Sally and You Sexy Thing all at the same time. The transition into Ghost was methodical and to my ears, welcomely unexpected.
10-31-2013 will always be my favorite Carini. This is my #2. It was one of the best jams of the year and deserves much more than the tepid review currently on the jam chart. From my talks with plans, there are many others who feel the same way. I’m looking forward to the JOTY voting to place this bad boy in its rightful place.

n00b100 Holy shit, is this jam good. You thought Carini was receding as a jam vehicle for the modern era? You thought wrong, Buster Brown.

jakekanezo I Feel So lucky they played this for my first Phish show! Nothing could beat the vibe I got from this song, with Trey laughing some of the words and (I think it was Page) screaming along, which hyped up the crowd enough to scream with him. Overall I think this song will end up being one of the highlights of what i hope ends up being a long journey with Phish.

n00b100 The weary groove that emerges out of this one sounds a lot, to me, like the end of the 10/31/98 Wolfman's, which is a huge plus in my book. Shame about the botched transition into CDT - one imagines Trey had it in the back of his head when he absolutely nailed the -> into it two weeks later. Love this jam; probably my favorite Carini since its annus mirabilis of 2013.

TweezingSpaceRanger This version is evil and heavy. While it may not have a screaming peak, it works brilliantly within the context of the set, especially following a great number line

Pinhead_Larry Despite a relatively short jam on this one (ten minutes, after the "song" portion), this jam covers a lot of ground, and is one of the more impressive Carini's played in 3.0, particularly from 2012 onward. The jam starts on a sludgy note, and becomes increasingly shifted to a major mode. This one has some Hose in it, particularly near the final few minutes near the end before the -> to Ghost, and Page is responsible for most of this, though Trey's guitar trills certainly add to this.

Not a note feels out of place, and this one wins for my favorite Carini from 2014. Hopefully Fall terr will make me update that!

I should also give a shout-out to the Ghost that follows. It reaches a high similar to NYE '10, but with a very "1999 meets 2013" vibe to it. Listen to both. They complete each other.

kipmat I say that this version is on the same level as 7/5/14 SPAC, but your mileage may vary.

TweezingSpaceRanger The entire DWD> Carini sequence should be highlighted yellow. This sequence packs the same punch that the 2015 Cheezer does, if not more. Also, there hasn't been a Carini close to being this good since this show. On top of the filthy and slowly evolving pocket Mike and Fish establish, which Trey and Page just slaughter, the crowd woo's actually work here because the band manipulates the crowds woo response to be softer each time and subtlety end the jam.

SoularT This was the best Carini of the best year of Carini IMO. Should definitely be "highly recommended." The organ/echoplex peak is pure magic - one of the best moments of 2013 (and god knows there were A LOT of magical moments in 2013).

skillz This jam should be highlighted yellow

zarathustraz This Carini can be considered the sister jam of the monster "Steam" the night before. Both jams have a similar persistent building of intensity, mostly thanks to the symbiotic swelling of Page's organ and Trey's new Echoplex.

n00b100 It seemed like Carini in 2013 was either about multifaceted shape-shifters (SPAC2, AC) or filthy grooves (Hampton, of course, or Worcester); this might be the filthiest groove of them all, which is saying something. What I really love about it is just how unhurried the band is throughout, content to stay right in the pocket until the opportunity to build to that monster peak (and the "woo"s, a nice comedown from said monster peak) presents itself. Fall/Winter 2013 had its share of big-time 1-2 punches, and this (w/DWD) has a case for packing the biggest wallop.

n00b100 I saw people bandying about the phrase "Type III" after this MFer was played; it's the sort of jam that basically sounds like the band mashing together every jam style they'd honed in their history into one hell of a tasty goulash. You find yourself moving from minor-key grooving to major-key blissfulness without even realizing the mood had shifted until it's already on top of you, with effortless grace and beauty. To me, the finest Carini they've played, and the crown jewel of Carini in 2013, a season on par with Jordan in '95-96 or Ruth in 1920.

coral_sand_below I hear Dark Star parallels in this as well. A great jam.

CreatureoftheNight My second favorite jam of the year, behind the Tahoe Tweezer. A slow methodical build to a glorious peak. Inspired playing from the entire band. It doesn't get much better than this!
, comment by CameToPlay , attached to 2013-10-31
CameToPlay Every time I listen to this I am struck by the similarities to Dark Star around the 14:30 mark, particularly the famous 2/13/70 version. But a fine jam overall and accessible no matter what the mood. A good go-to 2013 jam.

n00b100 What @pikepredator said. @waxbanks says that the final minute of the 8/5/11 Rock & Roll sounds like DJ Shadow; to me, *this whole damn jam* does.
, comment by pikepredator , attached to 2013-10-25
pikepredator This is one of the jams that convinced me length doesn't matter nearly as much in 3.0. They don't waste any time and the last couple of minutes are so tight, one of the sickest grooves I heard. Do I wish it was longer? Of course, but it gets me up and out of my chair every time.

ProfJibboo There have been longer jams, there have been higher peaks, there have been more intense versions, but when someone asks me what my favorite Phish jam is, this is it. Start to finish happiness. Constantly upbeat, dance-able playing that makes you lose awareness of time and space around you. Always moving with direction, never a dull moment. A true masterpiece.

TheEmu This may be my favorite Phish jam ever. Maybe...there are other ones that I love (11/22/97 Halley's, 11/22/94 Bitch, 8/16/93 Reba). But this jam is, more or less, fucking perfect.

i_am_spaghetti Such amazing interplay between Trey and page leading into the playfully bouncing lick Trey's rides starting around 8:30. Too much fun this one.
, comment by n00b100 , attached to 2013-10-18
n00b100 I would have probably gone red with the AC version over this one, but there's certainly nothing wrong with opining that this is the finer version. It's certainly one of the most outright *fun* jams they've ever played, the sort of jam you can call "larger than life" without too much hyperbole. Page's work alone will put a big dumb grin on your face for hours and hours.
, comment by n00b100 , attached to 2012-12-30
n00b100 It's really a tale of two jams here, one of them a reasonable straightforward Carini jam that peters out in interesting fashion and one a crazed, pitch-black monster jam stomping across a barren wasteland. The first one alone wouldn't merit inclusion on the jam chart, but paired with the second it makes for a compelling jam and one of 2012's many highlights.

kipmat @timkell ID'd the "Peyton" reference in this thread from Trey's Peyton Hooten story in Morristown NJ on 2/8/18. Video of the story is in the thread - it's hilarious X-D
