Undermind is a fresh collection of tightly focused pop tunes from the ever-surprising Phish. It is their most accessible album, yet manages to be engaging without sacrificing the innovation that is the band's hallmark. Undermind captures the band in a state of near-perfect harmony, figuratively and literally, making every second count with taut, bristling arrangements. The album features pop nuggets, tinges of funky rock and gospel, skewed romantic humor, and, of course, fans of the band's more complex and improvisational side will find plenty to celebrate, as the band stretches out on several evocative tracks. The first single, "The Connection," is a streamlined, melodic gem that features shimmering harmonies. Undermind was produced by Tchad Blake, who has worked with Los Lobos, Sheryl Crow, Elvis Costello, and many others.

Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Initial pressings of UNDERMIND included a bonus DVD.
Muze PNote Phish: Mike Gordon , Jonathan Fishman, Page McConnell, Trey Anastasio.
Muze PNote For years, Phish (like forebears the Grateful Dead) was dogged by criticism that its studio albums did not capture the band's widely acclaimed on-stage magic. While UNDERMIND, the group's final effort (the quartet officially disbanded in May 2004), may not completely silence the naysayers, the record's unquestionably accomplished sound does encourage a complete re-assessment of Phish as a recording entity. Producer/engineer Tchad Blake's trademark spare, meaty production gives the band's sonic textures a powerful wallop, evoking the jazz-like muscularity with which the combo imbues its live instrumental jams. In addition, Phish continues a trend started on BILLY BREATHES by focusing on tight, sharp songwriting, the title track standing as one of the group's catchiest tracks ever.
Muze PNote The Vermont foursome's astounding diversity is in evidence too, from the dreamy sunshine pop of "Scents & Subtle Sounds (Intro)" to keyboardist Page McConnell's Southern gospel-drenched "Army of One," to the monstrous, metallic bass riffs that drive "Maggie's Revenge." In the end, UNDERMIND is a fitting swan song and a top-notch studio album by a group that was always a genre unto itself.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.128)

Rolling Stone (p.150)
- Included in Rolling Stone's Top 50 Records Of 2004 - "[O]ne of their best studio albums, song-wise and jam-wise..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.84)
