Product Description

Product Description

Guster makes music using just guitars, voices, and hand percussion. By choice, the Boston trio have used their unique, sparse instrumentation to come up with creative arrangements and out of the ordinary sounds. The result is quite simply great music; songs with infectious melodies, stunning harmonies, penetrating lyrics and innovative percussion. Legendary Producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, Dave Matthews, Peter Gabriel) signed on with the Guster team after witnessing two heaving, sold-out shows at New York's Irving Plaza last summer. This fruitful marriage resulted in Lost And Gone Forever, an album of immense proportions and a significant leap forward when measured against 1998's acclaimed Goldfly.

Guster's formula is quite simple: Take time-tested harmonies à la Simon and Garfunkel or the Hollies, pour them over pleasant acoustic guitars, and add a pinch of congas for toe-tapping made easier. Lost and Gone Forever all but screams "radio friendly!" (especially with hit-producing wunderkind Steve Lillywhite at the knobs), but luckily the final product is more palatable than that. The musical plan is occasionally augmented by an electric guitar or strings, but generally follows harmonious sounds over articulate voices. Some people will listen to Lost and Gone Forever and find it too slight and completely corny, but others will fall under the spell of Ryan Miller and Adam Gardner's full-bodied vocal blend. --Jason Josephes

Produced by longtime Dave Matthews Band collaborator Steve Lillywhite, Lost and Gone is a collection of good songs adorned with a deft combination of superb harmony, inventive percussion, judiciously employed electric guitars. The result is an excellent summation of Guster's live sound, which simply isn't as multi-dimensional on their previous releases.
An unique lyrical approach eschews typical romantic yearning in favor of less-than-usual critiques of erstwhile friends ("Fa Fa") and grown-up reincarnations of only-childhood ("Center Of Attention"). Both work well with the diverse arrangment posibilities of Guster's three-piece set-up. Opener "What You Wish For" is as sure a hook as any, save for the bouncy kiss-off on "So Long," but further listening will reveal more subtle successes like the meandering song-form of the falsetto-laden "All The Way Up To Heaven."
Guster's songs definitely haven't always been this good, and neither has their production. Whether Lost and Gone was a stroke of luck or an astounding maturation remains to be seen, but even as a little of both it's definitely worth listening to.

For years we Guster reps have been singing the praises of this little band from Boston. And for years we've been subject to stares and "what's a Guster?" when we've attempted to initiate a fellow music lover into the fold. It had been rough going for a time until the boys made their way into the touring circuit with the likes of BNL and J. Mayer. This CD is a great introduction to Guster and allows new listeners to test the waters with their original sound. Being that it was produced by Steve Lillywhite; expect a clean, no frills CD that's meant to touch that inner feel-good pop streak we all try to hide so well in these days and times (admit it! we do!). But, if you're feeling particularly daring, take a listen to Goldfly and especially Parachute to get an idea of where it all began. All in all, L&GF is a great CD with many catchy pop tunes and a few somber melodies. A wonderful addition to any collection, and despite their growing appeal...you can still say "you knew them when."

First of all, I detest labels: emo, metal, alt, grunge. Perhaps it helps adolescents glom on to each other for some kind of sad community, but it isn't what the music is about. That's the delight of Guster: They, like the best bands, resist vapid classification. They rock, soft and hard, keep the toes off the carpet. My favorite track on LAGF started out as "Heaven", because of the sublime use of falsetto and the melodic hooks. Then, after the tenth or eleventh listening, I came to the conclusion that each song is a gem, polished and placed in the tastiest setting. For example, "Either Way" with an impeccable string arrangement in the background and its ironic lyric creates an aura of accessibility, but at its heart, the song is cleverly bittersweet. "I'll have to wait to get the best of you" operates on two levels. Witty guys, adam, brian, and ryan.
I beg you, buy this disc, play it till you neighbors come over and ask you who this great band is.

Hearing a band like Guster is an experience in it's own. From the beginning of the CD "Lost and Gone Forever" there is a certain oddity to the band. There are no typical drums, like one would find in any other new age band, but the kind that the drummer, Brian, uses with his hands, and occasionally will use sticks. A great CD to listen to in the car, to work or to just sit around with. The instrumentals of this band are ones that deserve the greatest respect. The harmonizing effect that this band creates with guitar and the drums are of great awe and the way they can incorporate other sounds in is astounding. Especially in "All The Way up to Heaven", where the Pinging noise of a keyboard recording track can make a song that brings such upbeat tempo and a good feelings out of those who listen. Never once has a band been able to match my taste in such a perfect way. Guster certainly pulls away from the normal flow of music in their own way that really makes them stand out.
I knew what I was getting into when I saw them in concert at the StarDust concert in Calgary, Alberta. It was cold and when they were on stage they brought laughter to the crowd. They introduced new songs they were tinkering with, such as my personal favorite, "All the Way Up to Heaven". Who knew you could make such a creative, fun song with a keyboard recording track and whistling. They have the ability to bring forth such great energy from crowds and even to those that listen to the CD that surely make them a remarkable band. It's a real toe tapping CD.
As strengths go for this CD and for the Band, I see their style and talents as a great contribution. Songs like; "Two Points for Honesty" really bring an orchestral sensation to the listener.

A friend of mine first introduced me to Guster about a two years ago and I was hooked immediately! It makes me feel good when I hear one of their songs-I get this feeling inside and I just want to sing! Lost and Gone Forever is my favorite one of Guster's album. I keep it my car all the time and I love the fact that EVERY track on the album is amazing and I never have to skip tracks because I love them all! It is always comforting to whistle with track number 7-"All the way up to heaven". That song gets me in a great mood. It's uplifting and great to sing along to. And then there are tracks like "Either Way", which are more serious, and are great to listen to when you're in those moods. The other day, I went to the Guster concert and it was a blast! The band was funny and the lead sing charismatic. The audience was loving it and so was I. I got really into it and sang along with all the songs. Also, more recently, I was introduced to Dispatch, which is very similar to Guster and are a very talented band, alike. So, buy the cd and I guarentee that you'll love Lost and Gone Forever, as well as their other albums. Guster is great!
