5.0 out of 5 stars Alabama Getaway Nov. 5 2002
Format:Audio CD
I remeber this album as one of the first Dead albums that the production started sounding full and worthy of the dead rythym section in the studio. Alabama Getaway is a perfect blend of commercially slick radio friendly sound while still retaining Jerry and Bob's superior technique and road earned mastery of subtle riffing and rythmic augmentation. Althea is so Deadly it defines the power of artistic hippy musical apptitude. I love this album because it is presentable to the mainstream but retains its freak flag flying high buried deep in the highest production fidelity money can buy. If you don't have a fully developed dead ear for psychadelic sound you can start your journey on track number one of Go to Heaven and work your way back to the first Dead Album. Enjoy the research. My the force be with you.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Go to heaven" uneven Dec 8 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Well, there's been much criticism for the title and indeed the sleeve photograph, but actually this Dead record can be judged more favourably on the contents. Side two is a little dark, with the exception of "Saint of Circumstance", but side one contains some jewels. "Feel like a stranger" is very strong, "Alabama Getaway" surprising and "Lost sailor" and "Far from me" quite nice. But prince among ordinary citizens is "Althea", which has become one of my favourite Dead songs.
"Go to Heaven" may not be an excellent studio album, but we all know that the Dead were at their best when playing live. You won't go to heaven with this one, but you won't go unrewarded.

3.0 out of 5 stars Long Career... April 1 2000
Format:Audio CD
Everyone has their favourite period of The Dead and I tend to like Mars Hotel and Wake of the Flood best. Go to Heaven does not fall into this era, however, this is a good album and I reccomend it. Musically, it is right up there, perhapse close to the masterpieces of American Beauty, Workingman's Dead and Europe '72. This album has beautiful songs with pleasing chord progressions, well, Lost Sailor and Saint of Circumstance at least. Some of the other tracks are more traditional Garcia Dead sounding. You will like this one if you are a fan of Bob Weir's voice, as I am, and like keyboards as well as guitars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please make it stop Aug. 18 2000
Format:Audio CD
The songs on this album bare no resemblance to the versions played in concert. And the songs are all below average besides. The fans of 80's and 90's Dead may like this album but it lacks passion. This is the reason the dead took over 5 years to make another album. The version of Feel Like a Stranger has no jamin like it did later on. Songs like Alabama Getaway, Lost Sailor, and Easy to Love You, just are plain boring. The only bright spot here is Althea though played much better live. If you wanted to introduce someone to the Dead do not show up with this CD, It is a loser all the way

I love the Grateful Dead. If you need a top 40's hook, not the band for you, but if you enjoy rhythm's from the soul, they have a subtle power...Inspirational for me in writing "The Care and Feeding of Your Brain" which I recommend for all dead heads reading this. For some reason, kept playing "Saint of Circumstance" from this album repeatedly during the time of writing it. All the best to Bob, Phil, Mickey, and Bill...and of course to Jerry, Brent, and Pigpen in spirit...Kenneth Giuffre MD, author, "The Care and Feeding of Your Brain"

1.0 out of 5 stars Not your fathers' Dead June 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is nothing like the classic dead you've heard about. Far from it. The sound is too polished. "Alabama Get Away" and "Althea" are okay but the rest is junk. I think most dead heads would agree that this is not the one to look for if you just want some of the Deads' best music. Really... The Grateful Dead with a polished sound?? Just doesn't seem to fit. Save your money for one of their greatest hits compilations,plus American Beauty, Worjing Man's Dead, Europe '72 and "Dead Set".
