    Eh, I thought the album was fun hehe. Couple good grooves in it, gets old after a couple of listens though. If nothing else, it made me laugh :)

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I'm a huge Mike Gordon fan, but this is hardly a ringing endorsement for me. If I want to laugh, I'll spin Zappa's "Sheik Yerbouti". :p

    Then again, as big of a Phish head as I am, I positively HATED Surrender to the Air, so much so that I returned it to the store and got my money back.

    Me too - the only CD I've ever returned.



    Speaking about the album today with a friend, we agreed that after listening to it, we like the idea, and his execution of promoting a pseudonym a bit more than the album itself.
