Phish’s “Sci-Fi Solder”

  • It has some very funky and tight sections, and a huge jam carrying capacity.
  • The actual Halloween show was quite long. Clocking in over 90 minutes, it’s up there with “Waiting for Columbus” but after three solid nights of shows I’ll admit to a bit of listener fatigue about half way through the live set.
  • Lyrically, it’s not the layered and complicated crossing vocals that are the hallmark of so many Phish songs, but the lyrics fit the comic book theme well. It’s not a narrative in song; it’s a musical interpretation of 3- and 4-panel graphic novel narrative.
