Hoist is deffinately a must have album. I's gotta be their most fun album to listen to. The songs are catchy not poppy like some people might insist. Its got a nice range of musical styles from the classic jamming, to horn sections and etc. All the guest musicians and backup vocalists are a great touch. All in all one of my favorites by phish.

People, step out of your tiny minds and look at what Phish is. They are a jam band, yes, but they can do much, much more, and can appeal to a much larger crowd. I LOVE Phish's long jams... this band is my favorite band ever, but I am very critical of what they do...and Hoist, while it may not be a CD of extensive jamming like Junta, Lawnboy, or Picture of Nectar, it is a side of them that is a bit poppish. LISTEN TO THE SONGS...they are good songs!! They are not as complex as YEM, Esther, Guyute, or most of their other songs, but they are still easy listening, fun songs. Ease up, guys...get this CD...it is an EXCELLENT album.

For a newbie, this CD is a great way to ease into the world of Phish. While Junta is a better example of what Phish is really about, this CD is a fantastic selection of catchy songs that could bring anyone into being a phan. Newer fans might not enjoy some of the stranger, lenghty songs on other CDs so this album is perfect for newcomers. Ignore the comments from other fans of phish if you're a newbie. While they perform some of these songs much better in concert, the CD is still great and you won't be let down when you hear them in concert. Phans might stay away, but newbies should flock to this one.

What you need to know about this album is that it is very entertaining and jam packed with lots of different sounding, very original songs. This isn't your run of the mill rock or pop album where everything sounds the same. Trey and friends really keep you guessing from start to finish throughout Hoist. I believe this was one of the first Phish albums I ever owned right along with Story of the Ghost. I feel the same way I do about it now as I did all those years ago. Phish provide me with an outlet for fun within my music choices. The highlights from this album include "Demand" which is one of their trademark jam songs. The guitar and instrumental pieces in this song are amazing. "Dog-Faced Boy", and "If I Could" slow down the pace of the album and provide very intricate and emotional lyrics. And of course there are the all around fun, pop-rock inspired songs which would include "Sample in a Jar" and "Down with Disease". While this album may be a little different and a lot less jammy than the rest of Phish's collection I think it provides solid, worthwhile entertainment to all who will possess it. Life should be part silly, get a hold of some of that silliness with Phish's Hoist.

People say not to get this one if you haven't heard Phish before, but I say get it. I have friends who aren't really into Phish that still like this album, probably for the same reasons phans don't like it so much. It's just not as weird as other previous albums. I think it's a great album for new fans to start with because it's more accessible. This one is the only Phish cd one of my friends owns. Songs like Down With Disease, Axilla, and Sample in a Jar are simply great. And you'll know if you're a phan if you like the last track. While I still think Billy Breathes is their best as well as the best starter cd, this one is pretty comparable. If you think you might like Phish, give this or Billy Breathes a try. You probably won't be disappointed and you might love it. The older, weirder stuff will always be there for you to get later.

This album has always imposed a variety of controversies amongst the Phish crowd. I've noticed a trend in the reviews going one of two ways. Die-hards complain that it's too poppie and the songs are too short, while "Hoist" supporters defend their precious by saying that Phish-pop still rocks. I feel my attitude toward Hoist is slightly different.
Unlike a multitude of jam band phans, I actually don't mind short catchy tunes. It's not the fact that Phish picked the wrong type of music to play, it's just that they didn't exicute it all that well on this album. At points, their interpretations of pop on this record could be compairable to ZZ Top playing campy sing-a-longs. For Phish, it was a little too much rock and not enough camp. The recording quality is certainly clear and direct, but for a subtle and sensitive band like Phish, that isn't always beneficial. This divides the sounds and takes away from their peaceful flow.
When folks say that this album is more accessible for new fans, I strongly disagree. I do not believe that this album would do the band justice, especially for someone who has never heard them before. I would rather point you in the direction of the chilling "Billy Breaths." I give "Hoist" 3 stars for 3 reasons; the heartbreak of Dog-Faced Boy,the flow and excitement of Demand, and Phish's wonderful sense of humor.

Have you ever heard that Phish song and it's like, "yeah, this is nice" Then you here their funky 26 minute instrumental grooves and think "I can't take much more of this" Then this cd is the Phish cd you should get.
I know thats what most people like about them. But I think their short rockin' mellow songs are the best with vocals. Take Juanta for example some great shorter songs, but others are marathon length which I lose my interest in. In fact I don't like any other Phish cd for that reason. But I love this one.
So if the shorter ones are the ones you like then get this. Solid from the start to begining. One of my top ten favorites of all time.
