Biography

When the four members of Phish talk about getting back together after spending almost five years apart, the same words keep coming up—“gratitude,” “appreciation,” “inspiring.” There’s an almost tangible sense of relief that surrounds this reunion of one of the most popular touring bands in history, and that same feeling of fulfillment comes ...

As a huge fan and collector of music from Phish, this was a must-have album for me.

It really shows off the band's great sense of humor and combines that humor with diverse musical styles and great musicanship.

Its difficult to choose a first among equals, but if I were to select Phish's best studio album, I'd go for this one.

I love this album. It's a wonderful collection of skewed pop and trippy style music. All the songs sound different. Alot of albums released by acts now have alot of songs that sound alike. on this album, everything has it's own little sound. It's nice to hear a band who can still do that.
The album starts out with just Trey Anastasio's voice and Page McConnel's piano in the background in "The Squrming Coil". This sets a bright mood for the rest of the album. It's as almost Phish were saying that the album is a "squrming coil of sunset". Very bright and chipper with a great little jam thrown in for good measure.
"Reba" is one of my more favroite songs. It is very catchy. Anastasio quick singing on this song is what first grabs you. Then the jam keeps you totally entranced. Just when you think it's over, a faint whistle in the tune of the song fades in and it gets louder and louder until it jumps right back into the song one more time.
I had to listen to "My Sweet One" twice before I really got it. It's really just a joke song in all honesty. It is sung almost totally accapella. The only instrument that is constantally playing is Jon's drums. A witty little break from your regurlarly scheduled album.
I love the deep slightly skewed vocals on "Split Open and Melt". There is a middle section here that kind of sounds like an old drinking song. It ends with a woman's voice just repeating the tilte of the song over and over.
The "Oh Kee Pa Ceramony" is as wierd as it's name. No lyrics. Just a short little "country-jazz" kind of jam. It sounds like a ceramony, though in the sense that you can hear glasses clinking and people laughing and chatting in the background.

Lawn Boy is now a classic Phish album. It is one of their greatest studio and songwriting achievements and is also a favorite among the legions of dedicated Phish fans. So why this album and not one of their other great albums? The reason is, I think, because it has the best of both sides of Phish. Phish are often considered a jam band with long, spaced-out jams. This album certainly has that with part of Reba and Run Like an Antelope. Phish can also write great rock songs that have great riffs and very memorable. This album has that as well. Songs like Lawn Boy and Bouncing Around The Room are perfect examples. Basically, this album appeals to fans of both sides of Phish and it can also appeal to any new fans, therefore it is a good starting place when getting into Phish. Although some of these songs have more impreesive performances on their official live albums, this album stands up excellently. All the songs are really great and are now classic Phish songs, especially The Squirming Coil, Lawn Boy, Reba, Split Open And Melt and Bouncing Around The Room. Lawn Boy proves, perhaps more than any other Phish album, that Phish is an incredible band, both live and in the studio.

I bought this cd early in my days of Phish. I am a dedicated musician and know what I'm talking about. Get this cd! Once you think you've figured out something about this album and its' meaning, you realize that you still have a long way to go. If this means anything to anyone, I have had a few significant musical experiences listening to this cd. In the solo at the end of Reba (which is possible Trey's best ever), if you are truly into the song and the emotions it provokes, you can almost feel what Trey is thinking just by listening to his guitar. Extremely powerful. But this cd is like a huge ocean. It takes a while to catch its sound because it's so complex, so don't force it upon yourself, but give it time to grow. This cd has changed the way I look at some things, and it will forever remain one of my favorites!

Lawn Boy is similar to Junta - both are live in the studio, with jam-heavy and shorter songs. And both are great! Squirming Coil is a strange opener - live it mostly works as a closer. But this is one of Phish's best songs, very pretty. Reba is spectacular. Has one of Phish's best compositional parts, and then one of the most incredible extended guitar solos I've ever heard. Not all of Phish's extended songs translate well to studio albums, but this one does. Also like Junta, there's not a bad song here. The album closes with Bouncing Around the Room, which should be listened to by anyone who thinks Phish can't write "real songs." It's a gorgeous little pop tune.
So to sum up, Lawn Boy is where you should start getting to know Phish (after getting Junta that is)

this album was my first experience with Phish, and I must say that I was a little taken back. I had never heard of them before so what I heard really confused me. They had the craziest sound, it seemed that a million different things were making a million different noises. My friends would joke that at some points it sounded as if Phish was playing a vacuum.. It took me a while, and then I started to discover that the beauty of this disc (and for the group as a whole) is that they come at you from a different direction than most music does. Just when you can't tolerate it anymore, the music does a 180 degree turn and flies into the sweetest jam you've ever heard (i.e. 6:25 of Reba) and your jaw just drops. Every song on this disc has a unique sound and feel to it, none better than the other, and none of any substance by itself. This is Phish at its earliest, when they were still very much exploring and defining their style. They get a lot of flack for their following, but if you honestly hold that against a band, then you can just go on liking 3rd eye blind or any other Top 40 creation that gets shoved down your throat on eMpTyV. Give this disc a try and see a new style of music that goes perfect on a road trip...Just roll down the windows, pop in the disc and cruise....Enjoy it!!!
