The Story of the Ghost

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Michael Gallucci
Phish's The Story of the Ghost, the ninth album from neo-hippieville's most proficient and clever players, is the group's most commercially accessible offering to date, a slinky and slightly funky trip through a slim conceptual piece about a life-affirming spiritual quest -- or something like that; it all gets pretty confusing midway through. But Phish has never been a very literary group; instead, its fervent cult feasts on the technical agility of the band's prime and skilled instrumentalists, which is on grand display here.

    Bliss

    Perhaps the best way to describe the experience of listening to Story of the Ghost is by saying that it is my favourite album of all time and I am seventy nine years old. Thank you.

    Phish in another way...

    I think this is a quality set, but it's a lot more mellow than their earlier stuff. I like the rambunctious attitude of the earlier stuff, but I have to credit them with coming up with such new and creative stuff all the time. I love it!! Their music rocks!
