Reigning Toronto y'alternative combo Blue Rodeo's third album finds the group deftly navigating country, folk, and rock--frequently all at once--with vigour and confidence. The independent strengths of co-singer-songwriters and guitarists Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor--Cuddy brings the pop while Keelor maintains the twang--are evident in songs like "Til I Am Myself Again" and "5 A.M. (A Love Song)." Elsewhere, bluesy ballads like "After the Rain" spotlight the band's seamless vocal harmonies. Additional support from bassist Bazil Donovan, drummer Mark French and the manic poundings of pianist Bob Wiseman (who later split to launch a solo career) help make Casino a brilliant example of why Blue Rodeo has remained among the country's best, and best-loved, bands. --Adem Tepedelen --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is my personal favorite of the Blue Rodeo CD's. Jim Cuddy has perhaps the best voice in rock today. Read morePublished on June 25 1999 by Bart Ewing
