Ghost

sethadam1 18 years later, still in my top 5 jams in Phish history.

pistilstamen This is one I can always access in the further reaches of my memory. Those last 6 minutes...afloat, lost at sea...the sun peeks through the clouds...but it's still really dark and really murky everywhere else.

sethadam1 Couldn't agree more with @Dog_Faced_Boy. This is my favorite Ghost ever, and the final 6 minutes are majestic in every sense.

n00b100 This one starts out 7/6/98 style as pure vicious rock firepower (interesting if Ghost had continued in that direction in its jamming evolution), maybe even more powerful than that most legendary of pure vicious rock firepower jams at times. But it's the left turn into that dark ambient-esque space, carried forward by Page's piano work and Fish snapping into a gentle groove, that makes this bad boy stand out. A tale of two jams, both of them fantastic, and proof positive that 1998 is not a year to be trifled with.

Dog_Faced_Boy The section of this Ghost that starts just before the 15 minute mark and continues to the end to my ears is among the most iconic moments in Phishdom. These 6 minutes capture the uniquely ambient sound of 1998 better than any other jam I can think of, except perhaps the "Jam" that follows 7/15/98's Horn. But the music here also has a foreboding sense to it, although it's not really dark sounding (to me). Then that impending sense of trouble brightens just a bit in the final minute with a shift to more pure ambient jamming. Is it the best jam ever? Probably not. But it's magical music nonetheless.
