Crimes of the Mind is a loopy, stoned excursion that winds through Dead-style rock and hippie folk-rock as interpreted by the Dude of Life. Throughout the record, the Dude is supported by his longtime friends Phish, who make the record somewhat interesting. While the Dude's vocals and lyrics are certainly an acquired taste, most Phish fans will appreciate the band's relaxed, sympathetic playing, which casually demonstrates their virtuosity.
