5.0 out of 5 stars Great album June 9 2003
By Cappy
Format:Audio CD
For the record, this is the first Guster album I bought. In fact, for now, it's the only one I have (although I definitely plan to get the rest of their CDs), so I can't compare it to their other albums. However, if they are anything like Goldfly, they are definitely worth buying. Some other reviewer said that on this CD Guster sounds a bit like an indie rock band, which is probably true. Their lyrics are unique and provocative, the vocal harmonies are beautiful, and Brian Rosenworcel (the bongoist) adds a great new element with his percussion that helps to give the band a lot of energy. Some of my favorite songs on this album: Great Escape (an adrenaline-pumping bongo trip), Demons (soars with beautiful harmonies), Airport Song (dark and pounding), X-Ray Eyes (makes me want to cry, even though it isn't really a sad song; go figure), Getting Even (another darkly beautiful song), and Rocketship (kind of depressing subject matter, but beautiful and moving). Of course, the other songs are great as well, I just didn't know what to say about them. If I had more money, I would have bought the rest of their CDs already. (By the way, they don't sound anything like Dave Matthews Band, but I used to listen to DMB, and other fans of them would probably like Guster too). Three words can sum up this album: Energetic, Harmonic, Quirky.

4.0 out of 5 stars Guster is Great, but the Production is Lacking July 27 2002
Format:Audio CD
I am a huge fan of Guster, as their third album "Lost and Gone Forever" is my favorite album of the last 10 years. This is good as well, although not up to the level of "Lost and Gone Forever".
The songwriting on this album is more inconsistent and doesn't have as many instantly likeable songs. It has more of an indie type sound and feel to it. I feel like the production is the biggest detractor to this album. The band has said that this album doesn't have the live energy of its third album.
On the bright side, it's still Guster and there are still great songs. "Demons" and "Grin" are probably the two best-sounding songs on the CD, both very catchy and memorable at first listen. "Demons" is one of their most acclaimed songs, in the same vein as "So Long" from LAGF. "Bury Me" is a concert staple, uptempo with some great bongo work from Brian Rosenworcel. "Medicine" is another great song, unusual for Guster in that it uses a real drum set and has a funky, bluesy feel to it. Some of the songs I initially didn't like but have really grown on me are "Airport Song" and "Getting Even". These two are darker than the majority of Guster's songs but very interesting.
Some may feel this is their best album if you are more into the college/indie scene. But like I mentioned, the songwriting is good but not really compareable to the genius of "Lost and Gone Forever". Still, that's a classic album and this is a very good album. The production on that album is 10 times better. You would barely be able to tell it's the same band judging by the sound from these two CD's. But each has its individual merits and some may prefer the more raw/indie sound of "Goldfly".
If you're a new Guster fan, I would start with "Lost and Gone Forever". Then get this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another superb Guster album! April 6 2002
By megkn
Format:Audio CD
This is one of those groups you just can't go wrong with. I own all three of their CDs (Parachute, Goldfly, and Lost and Gone Forever) and I can't stop listening to them. I have seen Guster in concert three times, once opening for BNL and twice on their own, and that is the best experience ever! They are even better live than on the CDs- especially with the Airport Song. If you have the chance to see them live- TAKE IT! Amazing!
This album specifically is the best of the three. You can sit down and listen to the entire album, and you will like all of the songs. Some of my personal favorites are Demons- great to sing along with and a great message, Airport Song- very catchy drums, memorable song, they play ping pong at the end (Whose your daddy now?), Grin- cathcy melody and message, and Rocketship- if you like their Parachute (on Parachute) or Either Way (on Lost and Gone Forever), you will love this song too.
Give this album a chance- I promise you will like it. My brothers and I agree, even though one is into harder rock, I am into pop and rock, and the other is into everything- this is a great album. The group is spectacular. One live show and you will be hooked. Also, check out their website (Guster.com) for cheaper CDs and great merchandise and funny band info.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Guster CD Ever!!! Feb. 2 2002
By Shelley
Format:Audio CD
Goldfly is by far the best cd's i have ever bought. Each song is unique and amazing within itself. The band has proven to be one of the most original and selfless bands out there today. Their endless touring and devotion to the love of music and fans is clearly noticilbe. They are close to each and everyone of their fans and are never promoting themselves on mtv, like the rest of the unoriginal groups out there. Adam has a wonderful low voice that goes along with his amazing guitar playing. Ryan's acoustic guitar and melodic voice, a striking contrast to Adam's, provide one of the best harmonizing duos I've ever heard before. Brian "the conguero" is definetely the most unique percussionist in bands today. Their lyrics are also something to behold. They are thought provoking and somewhat ambiguous. They are simple enough to grasp to but nowhere near annoying. This is evident on the amazing songs of Goldfly. "Demon" is one of the best and beautiful songs ever written. "Airport Song" shows Brians's percussion skills at their best. This song is very powerful as well as captivating. I am one of Guster's biggest fans and after you hear this cd, I know you will be too!

OK, this is a very new blend of music. If you're into Dave Matthews and emo punk you'll love this. It's acoustic, yet fast paced with bongos and various other hand drums. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Guster's finest hour
Purists will certainly split hairs over that assessment, but it fits. Guster did not sell out as so many claim they did with Lost And Gone Forever, but they did change... Read more
