Ghost

, comment by n00b100
n00b100 This one's been vaulting up my internal chart from the moment it was played. The opening jam segment is something of a false start, as the band ever so gently hints at disco (Mike, in particular, seems like he's got Miss You on the brain), before building towards a more upbeat 80s-style jam. Fish takes over and the tempo picks up as Trey switches to the Echoplex, and the resulting wall of noise Trey builds sounds like something out of Summer 2003, where dark and grimy jams were the norm, with Page's piano turning darker and more inward with each cycle as Fish really gets going. Page finds a brighter key at first, then returns to darkness as Trey goes for the late 90s loops, and then with one final Mike meatball and a weird vacuum noise out of Trey's guitar the band gallops to the finish line. A superb Ghost, melding that 2003 griminess with 2004's foggy upbeat hose, and a nifty segue into Weekapaug to boot.
