This is a really good album. Even though it does have some bad points (heavy metal chalkdust torture and Axilla) it has really good points like the waste. Probably one of the better songs on this disk, Dave matthews sings it really really well. The sample in a jar really is a good tribute, in according to perspectives. the makisupa policeman is very jamaican man. The gumbo is my my second favorite is a really good tribute. The Stanford marching band is the best though. it has a really good perspective on it and it is amazing that they are able to paly that song. Overall it is really good, even though i may be young (11) i know good music when i hear it and this is good. So it is not a waste of money, unless ur not a phishhead!
Phunkin Phish Tunes
As a lifelong Phish-Phan, this albums takes you to the heights of Phish legendary songs and brings you back to Earth with it's twists and turns thru the album. Makisupa performed by The Wailers is a very cool reggae version of an already cool reggae treatment by Phish. Nice job by all the artists to pay tribute to a jam band of monumental proportions and a legion of Phans that know great music.
Let me start this off by saying: I used to be a really big Phish fan, and I'm not so much anymore. Phish were really fun as a live band, but not as much when you're sitting at home... and certainly not if you're looking for great songwriting. That said, this is a really nice tribute album, and does a fine job of celebrating the music/spirit of Phish. All of the artists here sound exactly like themselves, but also all sound like they're having a good time playing silly Phish songs. Arlo Guthrie and Jimmy Buffett turn in really fun versions, Dave Matthews (love him or hate him) interprets Waste very tastefully, and, in my opinion, Little Feat absolutely nails it with Sample In A Jar. The second disc is a bit more uneven than the first, as I really can't get into the loud and grating Chalkdust Torture from Lost Villains, or Preston School of Industry's Axilla. But Axilla isn't a very good song anyway. On the other hand, the Wailers turn Makisupa Policeman from fake reggae into real reggae, the Boredoms turn Free inside-out, and Tom Tom Club absolutely RIPS it up with Sand. If you like Phish, this album is worth the download. If you don't like Phish, this won't convince you. But that's not the job of a tribute album. This one does just what it's supposed to do - it pays tribute, and it does it quite well.
