Midcoaster If this Twist doesn't tickle your 2.0/3.0 Phish jam-bone, I know little that will. This has the finest elements of a spacey Scents a la Camden '03 with a little more clarity and focus. Fishman holds things together and Page plunks some straight keys, while Trey and Mike can play with their effects pedals and new directions. I hear a lot of the Bethel Waves soundcheck, albeit with some even tastier Gordo funkdown. These are the types of moments that keep me chasing the brass ring. I give these guys major props for being willing to let the musical spirits of the universe pass through them and take them for a walk some 30 years down the road. It's a risky business in front of 35,000 paying customers, and yet these guys deliver it like extra servings of gravy and cheese curds on some sweet poutine. Heck, there are even hints of Electric Ladyland bass lines swirling around Trey's massive '77 Dancing teases (extant in NMINML, too). What a carousel ride of joy and a think [sic] of beauty to behold.
