"The Baker's Dozen" earned accolades from a wide array of national publications. "What I saw," wrote the New York Times' Ben Ratliff, "was a purposeful band in energetic form, better than I've seen and heard recently, more willing to let songs assume their own proportions, and going far into its own catalog." Rolling Stone singled out myriad magical moments from "All 13 Blissful Nights," noting "The Baker's Dozen was one of most ambitious seasons of Phish in years: three weeks' worth of twist-filled musical episodes for an engaged fanbase and onlookers wondering if it's too late to get in on the joke." "The Baker's Dozen has proven to be one of Phish's most elaborate and amusing experiments ever," enthused Esquire. "It's the band in Peak Wonka Mode, and it couldn't be more fun-which just so happens to be the group's reason for being." "The Baker's Dozen isn't the first time Phish has defied logic," noted the Huffington Post. "It'll keep fans guessing how this veteran band - or anyone - can possibly top it."
