Review by thinktankted

thinktankted Bathtub Gin is hilarious on several levels...Lyrically, of course with, people on window sills and kings climbing gates, purple humpback whales and jesters with sad tales...brilliantly non-sensical. Typical Trey picking words that sound good together, regardless of their meaning. Then there's the musical humor going on, from the Page intro, which sounds like the mutant child of Gershwin and Cage, to Trey's big-top inspired melody line that Fishman chimes in on....there's a lot to giggle at there. Make no mistake, it's totally on purpose...it seems like my favorite musicians are always closet comedians and cut-ups. With all that silliness, the song, at it's heart is full of space for the guys to throw down some serious jamming that really shows off their 30+ years of building musical "conversation skills."
