Customer Reviews

An icy clump of life beneath the ground.

This is Phish's finest studio work. At times it can be very loose and fun (Sparkle), at at other the band develops a deep concept and underlying storylines (My Friend, My Friend). The overall theme behind this album creates a systematic flow for the whole album conveyed through wonderful guitar transitions and perpetual rythym. This hands down is the finest album the band has created and a must for anyone who loves Phish. If you have never heard this album you are not a true phan.


Rift was my third Phish album and take it from a new fan of the music, go for something a little less absurb first. But I grew to love this record and once you work through some of the more obscure tracks (i.e. lengthwise which is brilliant but creepy for a new listener) you find some amazing stuff here. Wedge, Horn, My Friend My Friend, there is so much excellent songwriting on this album. The jams are tight and have just the right amount of out-of-key meandering to make them interesting. Sonically and musically it is one of the best CD's I own; iTunes writes it off as bad, but don't listen to them per se. Dive in and think for yourself.

This is the best studio album

Well, this and Hoist. Rift, It's Ice and SITM are three of my favorite live songs to here. Thank God I had a chance to see all of them live. Don't be a hater. this also is a great story album and if you pay attention it tells of a twisted and dark trip through sleeping and dreaming. You won't be disappointed.

During the early '90s, Phish emerged as heirs to the Grateful Dead's throne. Although their music was somewhat similar to the Dead's sound -- an eclectic, free-form rock & roll encompassing elements of folk, jazz, country, bluegrass, and pop -- the group adhered more to jazz-derived improvisation than folk tradition. Moreover, they sported a looser, goofier attitude; after all, their drummer regularly played a vacuum during their concerts. However, Phish's main claim as the inheritors to the Dead's...
