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.
