I don't envy the guy who had to chart this for pro keys. I'm not sure if Page McConnell knew what he was doing, or if he was just hitting the keys at random.

Like most Phish songs, the keys part for this song is extremely percussive and dissonant. Some parts are rather catchy and fun, but there are other parts where it's like he's slapping the keys as if they were bongos. So yeah, it's challenging, and it's far from boring, but I think trying to match the recording note for note isn't that fun, and kinda misses the point.

HippoLauncher - I'm not saying Harmonix could've charted it differently. I'm just saying the song doesn't work as well in the game as other songs would. Phish songs are kinda like Jackson Pollock paintings. They're not meant to be precise, and precision is pretty much the only thing that matters in the game.

I did have a lot of fun on some of the more melodic parts of the song, though. I just wouldn't recommend it on pro keys for most people.

Erniewan - Hmm, wouldn't the point be to playing the song though? What else could HMX do, make up their own random stuff? I guess the only way to capture the spirit of the song would be to let the player improv the whole thing, haha. But yeah, this song was pretty random, but challenging enough for a 4 rating from me.

Razor_Shark - You are probably right, Phish is a band that doesn't care about being perfect, or having songs that make sense. And trying to match the recording note for note does kind of miss the point, good review though. Reply
