I can only hope all the rest of my favorite artists have used their lockdown time as well as Trey apparently has. I know a lot of people’s eyes roll back when they hear about anything Phish-related, but I think even the most stalwart jam-hater can find something to like about this album. It has everything from delicate acoustic pieces to much more energetic, harder-rocking songs that will be fun in the future Phish repertoire. Trey also has a more hopeful view of humanity than I tend to, so his is a good perspective to get in these trying times of ours. Music has been a rallying point throughout my life, but even more so since the pandemic started and new, thoughtful material like this has been very useful.
