"This album is very difficult to listen to at first and comes off as complete cacophony or a bunch of people competing for first place. But then it suddenly hits you as just a completely amazing work of art up there with Miles Davis's Bitches Brew. All the musicians are truly impressive they know what to play when needed and know when to just be quiet. The drums, bass, and piano stick out the most on this album for me. John Medeski's piano solo is mind boggling. How these people are able to get this music in there heads in the first place and then out via instruments is beyond me."
This CD is on spinning on the edge

"When I first heard the story of this CD (Trey got a bunch of the best musicisans he could find put them in a studio and started the tape) my intrest was peaked. The first time I listend to it, I could tell that these peple had never been in the same room together. After a few times thru it I realized, these people are genuses. Sometimes its hard to listen to it so freeform, other times its beutiful because its so freeform. My favorite thing about `Surrender` is all the moving parts and hearing the instant chemestry between this dream team."

"I guess maybe I'm just some sort of peon. I loved phish, for years. I think Trey's solo debut in 2002 is incredible. I grock much of what Medeski does. I think Michael Ray's a genius, and consider myself fortunate to live in the same town he does so that I can hear him and his Cosmic Krewe often. I could go on and on about each of these musicians individually. But that's not what this album is about.Well, I don't know WHAT it is about. I suppose if I wasn't such a peon musically, I would *get* this album, understand it and appreciate its genius or whatever. But that's beside the point, because I'm not above admitting when I haven't got a freakin' clue. BUT BEYOND THAT, even if I could appreciate what these individually great musicians were trying to do here in the collective, I doubt I could ever ENJOY it. It's almost painful at points. I don't enjoy this kind of pain. This kind of pain is only a waste of money.oh well."
