  • Summary: Brendan O'Brien produced the singer's first post-Phish solo record.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 9
  2. Negative: 0 out of 9
  1. This is for all the listeners who liked Phish's good taste, eclectic nature, and Anastasio's playing, but never liked one of their albums.
  2. Anastasio's crafted the loud-but-tasteful, radio-friendly songs Phish were never able to create. [4 Nov 2005, p.73]
  3. These aren't profound new sounds, but Anastasio embraces proven rock formulas and makes them his own, free from the cul-de-sac jams of Phish and the expectations of fans and drifters. [30 Oct 2005]
  4. Easily the radio-friendliest set ever from the Phish camp.
  5. 60
    There's no jam-band noodling, and Anastasio's indelible head-bobbing cheer is now attached to the kidn of straightforward hooks Phish preferred to twist. [Dec 2005, p.144]
  6. Shine won't win over many nondevotees, but it's also not just a series of launching pads for guitar solos. [3 Nov 2005, p.90]
  7. Though not terrible, Trey Anastasio's latest is miles below what he's done before.
