4.0 out of 5 stars A few songs you should not be without. Sept. 5 2012
By M. Kurtz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I realize this is one of the Grateful Dead's weak releases. However, the profundity and beauty of "Standing On the Moon," and "Built to Last" make this album worth while; it would have made a great EP. The two aforementioned songs are two of my favorites. If you choose not to buy this album then do yourself a favor and get these few brilliant tracks somewhere. Cheers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ironic Title for this Disc June 17 2012
By Jimmy S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD because of the poignant and plaintive "Standing on the Moon." IMHO it's the best song on the disc. The Dead were definitely in what seems like a "winding down" period by the time this disc was released, so "Built to Last" is not their most enduring work. Kind of ironic.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not For The Casual Fan Jan. 18 2008
By Socrates Stewart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
BUILT TO LAST is the Grateful Dead's last album and they finish their recording career with a pretty boring album. The song, "Foolish Heart," got most of the radio attention and is the most often included song in their concert repetoire. However, that song alone is not worth the price of the album. There are plenty of other great Grateful Dead albums, AMERICAN BEAUTY, WORKINGMAN'S DEAD, MARS HOTEL, and IN THE DARK plus a number of fine live albums are much better choices.

This album is for completists and Deadheads only and for them, it will take up shelf space more than ever becoming a staple in the CD player.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grateful Dead In The End? March 2 2009
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's more then apparent from the reviews of this album that this album is considered a low point in regards in the Grateful Dead's long career. Sadly it's also the end of their career but I really don't agree this was a bad way to go out.Now I'll start out by saying I am no "deadhead";I have never followed a group around live-never had the time or inclination to do so.And frankly from what I've heard I tend to go more for the bands funkier,jazzier 70's music such as Blues for Allah and my favorite Shakedown Street. So I came to this album with little to go on.And I wasn't disappointed.Considering how bland most late 80's-90's pop/rock could be this album actually seems to have plenty of heart in it. It's no mistake that the leadoff song and big single is called "Foolish Heart";funny that the Dead were always so openly anti-commercialism and in the end of their career they started getting hit singles. It's definately in the 80's rock genre-slick,mildly chilly in tone and with some,in this case tasteful synthesized backrounds.That is also the general tone your going to get on "Just A Little Light",the title song and "Standing On The Moon"."Blow Away","Standing On The Moon" and "Picasso Moon" turn out to be pretty touch rockers-the contemporary influence of Dire Straits and period Springsteen are in play but the presense of implied social commentary and moralizing on the latter two songs make it clear your firmly in Dead country with this music.I suppose most people who enjoy the Grateful Dead of the past will find what they're looking for on "Victim Or The Crime",a longish,slightly creepy piece of psychedelia that makes it clear that the band would never truly abandon the music that originally made them famous. The album ends with a a sweet lullaby in "I Will Take You Home".Even if this album finds Jerry Garcia's then mildly strainded singing near it's limit at times and the production is far from 100% organic in nature this is an album with a lot of strengh and a lot of treasures.The band could've actually lived off their tour revenues at this point and NEVER have to record again-and still give free performances occasionally. But at least they gave us one last album that was really good all things considered-featuring the strong writing and the jazzy,bluesy R&B heart at the core of the music. Even if the band has always been stereotyped as the original jam band before Dave Mathews and Blues Traveller the band could be excellent pop tunesmiths on their studio albums. And even at this very late date this finale to the bands career demonstrates that for all who hear.
5.0 out of 5 stars A++++++Their last...but truly one of their best! Jan. 30 2014
By Beatle Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:LP Record
Standing On The Moon, Built To Last are two superior tracks on this new vinyl issue. The gatefold cover shows the hard to find artwork in full effect, with the original inner sleeve artwork now in the inside gate.....Sounds cool, and one of the better later Dead releases.....Jerry and Brent left us all too soon...
