Product Description


Not every retro-flower-power outfit taps into the ponderous dullness that mars the genre. There are a few bands out there that rise above their peace-'n'-love trappings to produce some memorable music. Rusted Root, for one. Fronted by Michael Hutchence sound-alike Mike Glabicki, the quietly compelling little combo has been mixing rock, reggae, and Far Eastern filigrees for several likable albums, molding a melange that's as unique as it is crowd-pleasing. Maybe a sense of humor is their secret. Glabicki seems to have a good deal of fun with the hippie concept, as on the blues-guitar-based "Live a Long Time" (which morphs into a goofy psychedelic rap-romp) or the hillbilly hoedown "Kill You Dead" (which would fit nicely on any early Violent Femmes folk fest). And when he tunes his cultural radar to higher frequencies--like on the bongo-hammered "Agbadza"--the results are every bit as intriguing as a Ry Cooder experiment. This isn't even the group's best work--the Rootsters veer toward too many blasé ballads to maintain a keen interest. Even so, RR is miles ahead of Phish, and 10 times more sincere. Tie-dyed pop, your time has come. --Tom Lanham

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the energy of their live shows Jan. 5 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've been fortunate enough to know this band since their inception into the neo-hippie music scene in 1990. Their first two studio albums, the independently released "Cruel Sun" and their major label debut "When I Woke" captured the fundamental element of the band that makes its loyal listeners come back time and time again to see them perform live. The second major label output (Remember) missed the mark completely of capturing this live element. However, this album puts the band back on track even though its laden at times with electric guitars and overdubs, which causes the powerful and brilliant work by their rythym section to be obscured in a musical goo. In other words, this album doesn't measure to their first two works but a very good effort nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rusted Root Rocks On Jan. 19 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This new self-titled album is amazing. It's got songs for every mood: "Rising Sun" is a great mellowing tune, while "Magenta Radio" will have you up and dancing in a second. The Rolling Stones cover "You Can't Always Get What You Want'' recorded with the band Hot Tuna is an excellent ending track and will have you singing along in no time. A couple of the tracks have too much electric guitar and 'angry' feeling, but overall it's great. To capture the real experience of Rusted Root, you just have to see them perform live to appreciate their music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant album March 14 2002
By Bobby
Format:Audio CD
I was dissapointed with this album at first. It's difficult to really understand and it doesn't have the same supeficial catchyness that "When I Woke" did. Once I got used to it, however, it has become one of my favorite albums. There's an old indian philosophy that claims that all things are composed of circles or cycles. This album is a musical expression of the emotional cycles we all go through woven together perfectly with intricate drumming and instramental coordination. Being a musician, I see this album as a testament to the power of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars rusted root's best work by far Dec 22 2000
Format:Audio CD
i was shocked and disappointed to read these reviews. this is one of my favorite albums of all time. i think this band transcends all of the comparisons to the dead, phish, dmb, and the like. this is such a beautiful album that always makes me smile. "rising sun" is one of those songs that just makes you stop and dance no matter what you're doing. the instrumental and stylistic experimentation that differentiates this from rr's other albums really makes this their best masterpiece to date.

Rusted Root's self titled CD is a mixture of slow songs with beautiful lyrics and excitable tunes that jump out of your CD player. "Live a Long Time" and "Magenta Radio" are so vibrant that they can get you excited while "She Roll Me Up" and "Rising Sun" can mellow you out. The remake of "You Can't Always Get What You Want" with Hot Tuna is an added bonus. Even though "When I Woke" is still my favorite, this CD is a very close second.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely innovative and their best album yet! Nov. 20 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In today's world of cheesy music manufactured on drum machines, it's great to see a band with some real legitimate talent. They play all kinds of different ethnic instruments as well as the traditional guitar, drums, etc. They have a distinctly tribal feel yet I would still classify them as pop. You just have to listen to them to understand what I mean. This album is definitely their best, too. They use a lot of distortion to give it a kind of psychadelic feel. It's great!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a must have, but a kinda should have Jan. 11 2000
Format:Audio CD
On their latest album, Rusted Root's self titled disk takes you down their familiar roads. bongo drums, African nods, strong vocals. But at first listening to this album, I really didn't have that much opinion towards it. It neither liked it, nor disliked it. But after really listening to it, I really started to like it. Now this album is my "to go to" album, for those times I need a good cd. Basically, after listening to it, it grows on you in a good way.
