I am a newcomer to all things Guster, having only "discovered" them in October, 2003. I saw them on Leno performing "Amsterdam" and was immediately taken with the sound and quality of the tune. I went out and purchased it a few days later (on the afternoon my son was born), slapped it into my CD player and it has seldom seen daylight since. I was immediately swept away by the wonderful, eclectic sounds and the lush arrangements.
To my ears, this is one of the best albums recorded by anyone - EVER. Hungry for more, I went out and purchased their back catalog of CDs (Parachute, Goldfly, Lost and Gone Forever), but I keep coming back to Keep it Together. Guster purists may not agree with me (and that's totally cool), but I like this album tremendously and think it's their finest to-date. Highlights include "Diane", "Careful", "Amsterdam", "Come Downstairs and Say Hello", "Homecoming King", and "Jesus on the Radio". All the tracks are good, but these really stand out. Great stuff!
If you like quality music and are able to divorce yourself from what you expect Guster to sound like based on their previous recordings, you can't possibly miss with Keep it Together. Buy this disc!
