5.0 out of 5 stars Sheesh... July 4 2004
By Jason
Format:Audio CD
A few friends of mine recommended this band to me and I just can't get this CD out of my CD player. I could go and do a whole track by track analysis like everyone else, but that would be a waste of time for both of us.
I urge you to get this CD.

3.0 out of 5 stars production ruins a decent record June 24 2004
By Geoff
Format:Audio CD
After such a long hiatus from releasing a studio album the expectations for Guster's latest effort "Keep it Together" are surely far too high. This being said, the album does infact succeed in a few respects but also bears the mark of the band's repeated mixing and remixing the tracks.
The bright spots are numerous and the album is enjoyable. The record has a clean mix to it that when done well comes off in pure guitar peel-offs but when done poorly becomes a mess of studio overdubbing.
The highlights are "Diane", "Careful", "Ramona", and "Come Downstairs and Say Hello". The first single "Amsterdam" shines except for an oddly simple, power chord chorus. "Backyard" is close to being a subtle favorite were it not for some weak experimentation with dissonance. Yes, certain notes sound very bad together, lets accept it and stop ruining potentially good tracks.
"Come Downstairs and Say Hello" may be the best song on the record. Though it starts in slow winding fashion it seems to follow a musical and lyrical progression which ends in a classical almost galluping Guster sound. Despite the slow begining, the song maintains its musical interest and weight throughout and its end only serves as a pleasant and logical completion of the begining.
The true disappointments are infact not totally unredeemable. "Homecoming King" is musically fairly catchy but the lyrics are as reprensable as some of Jonh Mayer's weakest efforts. It is clearly a bitter coda to the people who made fun of these boys in highschool. The image of "Homecoming King" is trite and about as smart as all the word play on an O-Town record.

Guster- Keep It Together
Another one bites the dust. the Gods of Guster complete yet another drop down and out album. there quirky upbeat yet painstaking sound drowns out any other, up against rhythmic b0ngo drums with a sent of killer texting that sits on the tip of your tongue till itll spill over into ever-loving extasy*.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missing that unique feel June 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
Guster had an amazing combination of non-traditional drumming style, interesting guitar work, and fantastic vocal harmonies. However they have lost much of it. When I first saw Guster in concert three years ago I was amazed at a drummer who didn't use sticks, no bass, and guitarists who used beat up acoustics so heavily that they needed to be tuned every two or three songs. It seems that Brian is no longer willing to bleed for the sake of music and the band has given in to the traditional pull of the three piece pop-rock group; giving up their unique character and sound.
It is a fun album, but I can hardly listen to it from disappointment.

1.0 out of 5 stars I wept May 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have been a long time fan of Guster and I wept when I listened to this so-called music. Good job boys, you cracked out of the clutish into the pop world. I hope they're proud of their turn into mediocrity and conformance. It only leaves me wondering whether it was the money, pressure from the label, or insanity that drove them to give up what seemed like a genuine love for the music and just bleed out this stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guster Rocks My Socks!!! May 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
Guster is definitely one of my favorite groups, and this CD is one reason why. This is one of my favorite CDs and it's constantly in my CD player. If I were to list my favorite songs from the CD I would be listing pretty much every song! It's one of the few CDs I can listen to completely through without once pressing the skip button. Guster songs are simple and catchy and will be stuck in your head for days(but not annoyingly).
The songs 'Amsterdam' and 'Careful' are probably the catchiest on the CD(those are the ones you might have heard on the radio), 'Ramona' and 'Diane' are sweet and easy listening(though they're all easy listening). 'Homecoming King' in my opinion, should be on the radio its so simple and smooth, and Guster teams up with Ben Kweller for 'I Hope Tomorrow Is Like Today', a smooth song that's a perfect end to the album! I could go on and on about this CD, but I think thats all I'll say for now...
PS- You HAVE to see this group live! They will blow you away!

5.0 out of 5 stars A change in form caps off latest Guster excursion April 9 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have been a Guster fan since they were called Gus and it has really been a journey watching their music progress from the edgy yet fun Parachute to the tight grooves of Keep It Together. Every Guster album has at least 4 or 5 songs I constantly listen to but Keep it Together stays in my player for its entire length. The album has an faint yet unmistakable hint of bluegreass flavor coupled with catchy melodies and harmonics. The structure of the songs is much more sophisticated than even their last album and it maintains a smooth flow throughout. I can't tell you what tracks to listen to because they are all great but my favorites are Diane, Careful, Romona and Jesus on the Radio. Kick back and enjoy a constantly evolving band in their prime. If you get a chance, see them live too, the drummer/percussionist is absolutely AMAZING!
