Though largely positive, the review criticizes Anastasio's singing and the "Phishspeak" quality of the lyrics. Phish appeared on TV twice before their official return to the stage on New Year's Eve 2002.
Several of the songs have never appeared on studio albums. Before the band played the next song, "Ghost", they inform the audience that the song is "radio un-friendly, because it's really long, and really slow" . Tracks 2 and 3 were recorded on July 9, 2003 at the Shoreline Amphitheater, Mountain View, CA. In addition to a few more traditionally structured songs, Junta contains symphonic-like epics, large-scale improvisation and multi-part progressive rock suites. They trade out long jams for an eclectic array of covers like the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage,” Chumbawamba’s ubiquitous hit “Tubthumping,” Will Smith’s “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It,” Bob Dylan’s “Quinn the Eskimo,” Gary Glitter’s “Rock and Roll Part 2,” and Ween’s “Roses Are Free,” along with stellar versions of originals like a twenty-five minute “Mike’s Song/Simple” combo and a twenty-minute “Bathtub Gin/Piper” one-two punch. 14 was recorded live at the Rosemont Horizon (now the Allstate Arena) in Rosemont, Illinois, near Chicago, Illinois, on Halloween night, 1995.

Undermind isn’t a bad album but it does have an air of exhaustion and finality to it—two things no one wants to associate with Phish.
Much like Junta gave fans early drafts of legendary tunes, Lawn Boy has its own fair share of songs that would become Phish staples. Live Phish 04.02.98 is the first night of the four-night "Island Tour," recorded live at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, on April 2, 1998. Fuego is also a great name for an album and the album’s cover might be one of my favorites. Tickets were $18 and they put a call out to fans to vote on what album they should cover, with the winner being the Beatles’ White Album front to back.
