I found my way to a few tracks that people recommended in other reviews, and realized the connection. I was thoroughly impressed with what I had already heard (Fa Fa and Barrel of a Gun), but was moreso amazed by how amazingly easy I could listen to all the other songs (the songs I heard on the radio aren't even on this CD!). It seemed every new one I heard I could listen to all day, and I could remember the lyrics from the first listen.
There's not a bad note on this CD. It really is some of the best music I've heard. Every song is great, I really think each song is good and different, and has a certain universiality that can let you listen anytime. I listen to Dave Matthews Band a lot (until his new CD, it's a shame the way they changed. It oozes Glen Ballard's sugar-candy style that does not fit DMB at all), and to fill the void I have found Guster.
Wow they've been around awhile, but a true diamond in the rough that you won't appreciate unless you take this review to heart. It's great music that only makes you feel good and amazed at the way simple intruments can be translated into complex and extremely original hooks and arrangements. I hope that they continue to make great CDs, and keep the upbeat and universal sound. I rank this CD right there with Under the Table & Dreaming and Live at Luther College. Songs I especially recommend (not just on this CD): Cocoon, Window, Fall In Two, Either Way, Two Points For Honesty, and Happy Frappy. Go get em.

This CD is so awesome that it is hard to find words to describe it. Even though it was the first album Guster released, it was the last one I listened to all of the way through. Read morePublished on June 7 2004
This is my fav guster cd by far. The newer stuff jsut doesn't have the raw energy this album does. Two acoustic guitars, bongo drums, and no messin around.Published on Dec 5 2003 by Doug
This is a magnificent album, especially for a group of 19 year-olds. It took a while for Parachute to grow on me, but once it did, it was in my cd player for a month straight. Read morePublished on Aug. 28 2003 by J. Bean
This cd is decent, but their newest cds are the best. I would not recommend buying this cd; however, I do recommend Guster's latest works.Published on July 7 2003 by Eric Hammon
This CD is not their best work, Goldfly and Lost and Gone forever are much much better, please spare yourself and save your money with this one... definately not worth having. Read morePublished on June 22 2003
I've been a Guster fan since they were called Gus and students at Tufts University. Their sound is very unique, and when I've seen them live they are so charismatic and have a... Read morePublished on May 23 2003 by Jennifer Cassone
This is without a doubt my favorite cd of any band. I bought it a little over a year ago and I haven't gone longer then maybe two weeks without listening to it. Read morePublished on Aug. 9 2002 by Michelle
In short, Guster is amazing. They are truly a one of a kind band. Goldfly ..., Lost and Gone is good but over-produced, and Parachute is AWESOME! I love it! Read morePublished on July 25 2002 by Angry Red Barber
