the band has ever been. Tracks like “Pebbles and Marbles” and “46 Days” provide typical Phish style, random yet melodic, but Round Room noticeably lacks any remnants of their upbeat early albums. Fans of “Phee” and “The Car Song” may be disappointed with the quieter sounds on Round Room, but devoted listeners will appreciate tracks like “Mock Song” which continues Phish’s traditional originality. In all, this is a well-produced album that true fans of the band will enjoy, though bandwagon-riders may prefer to opt out.
