Most Underrated Phish Song

Postby eaf288 » Mon Sep 05, 2005 6:22 am

If this can be answered:

Most underrated Phish song.

I'm going to have to give my vote to Billy Breathes. Perhaps, I'm grossly mistaken, but I haven't heard too much about this gem. Honestly, I've skipped many of the nine preceding tracks during my most recent Billy Breathes (the album) sessions.

--->Don't get me wrong, I'm still a fan of the album w/ Cactus' mug on the cover 8-)

Most Underrated Phish Song

I think the entire album RIFT is highly under rated...at least on this board and by fans in general.

It's a fucking amazing album all the way through. I listened to it recently on a road trip with my Son (who is a big Phish fan, too....go figure, eh). It's now his favorite album. He highjacked my copy and plays it all the time. Thank god I got my copy of Lawnboy back from him for now....
RIFT is a classic that is highly underated on this board, I do believe.

As for BILLY......I love that album also! the title track is beauty!

You know.....UNDERMIND is quite an underated tune............

^ Definately Lifeboy...when it appears as that breath of fresh air after 20-4o minutes of HARD jamming...it can just lift you up...ie. 8/13/96 Deer Creek Mikes > Lifeboy

Other than that...NICU maybe...Colonel Forbin's...everyone of course loves the rants in the middle, but the song itself is just pure magic...but I don't think we have a tendency to underrate many songs at all...

i would say nicu is pretty underrated it really lets page shine, and we don't see enough page IMO.

"Horn."

I always felt I could identify with the lyrics for some reason.

Postby Funky Begonia » Wed Sep 07, 2005 3:27 am

I think Maze is pretty underrated. It has an really cool jam even though the song is a little tweaked, but thats why I love it. I guess it would suck if you were tripping and heard that song, but it still a nice little mind fuck, and keeps me on my toes when i'm walking down the streets of NYC listenin to my IPod. BUt Maze needs some credit, especially when they end it like a cartoon show and then bust into Fee.

i would have to vote for slave to the traffic light. this song barely gets discussed on this board and i dont think ive ever heard a bad version of it. i also feel jesus just left chicago is another overlooked (cover) song. its so mellow to start then the page/trey solo sections just rip every time.

i'd have to agree with 'billy breathes'. the boys seemed like they really used the studio environment well, its probably the best on the album.also love the slave.

For this, I salute you.

Everyone who doesn't like this song should spend a little bit of time with 'Specimens of Beauty' and watch how much fun Phish have with it.
This isn't who it would be if it wasn't #2.

Just based on the Fav. Gamehenge song poll, my vote now goes to Col. Forbins Ascent...It is one of Trey's most complex compositions and one of Phish's highest energy songs...Can you tell by my Avatar/quotes that I'm a bit obsessed at this point?

I don't have Specimens of Beauty, I bought Undermind through itunes to get the bonus song (which is unimpressive), and now you can't get Specimens :'(

Mound is a rather underrated song, it gives mike a chance to shine, and i like to clap.

I like Esther when I'm in the mood. When I'm not, I loathe it. I actually like it better when Trey effs up the lyrics...

I don't know if you can consider this song "overrated" but "The Curtain With" is a beautiful song. It has a soaring jam at the end, if extended, and can really make me stop and think. I didn't like the song at first, but now I do.
