This one doesn't seem to get much of a look in compared to Phish's many other studio and live CDs. However it is to my taste by far the best.
As my introduction to Phish it took a few listens for my ear, then wired exclusively for techno, to understand it's melodic language. Once it did I felt like I had discovered a new country full of colour and beauty. That was ~16 years ago and it remains in occasional use to this day. It still sounds just as fresh from the relaxed title track to the soaring and epic 'Reba'.
I can't recommend it highly enough, give it a fair shake of the whip if you buy it though.
