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.
