Deuce as good as any Phish album ?
« on: September 09, 2003, 02:41:59 am »
I bought Deuce @ my 1st show 7/1/03. Until I got boots a couple weeks ago, all I had were Bonafide and Deuce. I have come to this conclusion: that Deuce may be as good as any Phish studio album and one of the best " Jamband " albums in the last 10 years.
Songs, Production, Cool artwork it has it all. From the funkiness of TFA, the classic rock sound of See the Light and LDZ, the haziness of Phaddy,the pure bliss that is Question Mark, the romp and stomp of Beef Barley, the jam vehicle that is Buquebus,the spinner\'s delight of What the Funk, through the dreamy fog of Mooboo\'s, DEUCE has something for all !!!!
 PB seems to have done in its second album what it took Phish IMHO 4-5 albums to do. That is make an album that flows well with songs that have concise structures along with "jammy" songs. PB probably gets compared all the time as "a little phish". Well congrats to them if you are gonna be lumped in with another band why not one of the best? Only being around a few years now, makes this band even more amazing to me. It is funny how people who don\'t believe me when I tell them how good PB is quickly change their tune once I play any song off of Deuce. Once I play them a little live PB you can see the lust begin to develop :)  
Help get Deuce on a Billboard chart. Play it for all your friends, park your car in a public parking lot and play it loud until the cops tell you to stop, then turn it down and tell the cops where to buy a copy. Have a friend that works at a bar ? Tell them to put it in the jukebox. Whatever you can do will help.

Yeah man, the amount of jamming on duece is unreal for a studio album in this day and age.

it is so ironic that this would come up today as i actually couldnt wait to get home from work today and put on deuce.when it first came out it didnt leave my cdplayer for a good 6 months.to me it stands up to the best phish albums and perhaps anything else thats come out.mooboos voodoo is still the best tune of all time too!!!
take the E to the A to the D...you\'ll be all set

Deuce was in my Cd player for 4 months after the release show, but Junta, Rift, and Picture of Nectar are better albums.  Sorry.  Before you get pissed off about that comment, just remember that PB is 5 times better than Phish right now as far as playing live music goes.

Wolf....I feel the same way...but don\'t apologize because some one else might not agree with you. To each his own.

Junta: thrown together. Rift:tried to make a concept album and just confused people. Nectar: No flow. All great albums but not the complete package. I just do not think Phish did this until Billy Breathes. I did buy all of these albums when each came out so I have listened to them for years. I only wanted to get a discussion started about Deuce anyway:)

Indeed! I personally like PB way better than Phish. They\'re much tighter, Tim is much better, and they are incredibly more psychedelic and comfortable. And funkiah!
