Spun it a couple more times and I'm digging it, it's kind of pop but still has plenty of trademark Mike weirdness.

Seems like he's put out the best Phish related album in a while, maybe it will spurn Trey to write some better tunes.  :samurai:

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Couldn't find it anywhere locally which is weird so I got it $19ppd from Soundstage with their 20% code....

I've been pretty impressed with this album so far - immediately had it on repeat after the first listen because it just kind of came out of nowhere for me.  When I heard "pop, disco Mike", I wasn't really feeling it, but it's definitely something new and pretty interesting.  I am kind of regretting not going to see MGB this time around...

I think the Green Sparrow was the last one of his I remember listening to, and I can't recall listening to it more than once.  I guess I'm just not too into Mike's solo stuff.  Normally.

Having said that, I'm really digging this one.  It's more my style, I suppose.  I'll have to check out a few of the shows and see what the material is like live.

It's uh, certainly something different from Mike and I like it a lot better than Overstep which I thought was pretty annoying/grating. 

I guess it's a solid effort but like most Mike solo stuff, or Phish studio stuff for that matter, I doubt I'll be listening to it much after it's a couple months old.

Clone should be in regular rotation.

Yes.
I also like Inside In a lot. Mike's other solo albums haven't really done it for me. But lately I seem to like the songs he brings to Phish better than most of Trey's new stuff. Haven't tried OGOGO yet, but I will.

I really like it.  Solid grooves.  My first listen sounded like a Prince tribute.  The sleeper track for me is So Far Gone.  Really good stuff.

I like it a lot. And so does our big bad-ass cat Lemmy.
I am sucker for Mike's solo stuff. Also: no sign of Trey ballads. That's is a big plus IMO.

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.

Finally getting a chance to listen to this and I am kinda amazed at how good it is.  Wish I didn't blow off his show last weekend.

I wish you didn't either.  I am dying for MGB to come back here.

I like the album and love that MGB seems to be constantly evolving.
It'd be interesting to see these tunes in a live setting.

Anyone else get the stab at Mike's issues about a hobo takin photos? Oooooo

Music is what feelings sound like.

I thought he was saying "Some Quasimodo takin' photo's".

Do you think he is referring to the Jones Beach Dead show incident?

Caught Gordo in Boulder last Friday and he exceeded my expectations. I hadn't heard the new album yet and was pleasantly surprised with the new tunes. Very poppy/catchy, which I didn't expect, but I dug 'em.

Those dudes jam too. Fun show!
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

this is true. I find the shows a mixed bag sometimes, but there will always be some left-field jamming in there. The band seems pretty fearless in that sense. Mike's singing just gets tedious after two full sets.
