Product Description

Imagine the Gypsy Kings as hippies from Pittsburgh and you'll have a handle on Rusted Root. Energetic, largely acoustic worldbeat jams like "Ecstasy" and "Martyr" are undermined by annoyingly preachy lyrics. Jeff Bateman

This is one of those albums that you can listen to straight through, from start to finish, without skipping over any tracks. It's like a "Nevermind", or an "August & Everything After" in my opinion, based upon the fact that every track is worth listening to. Of course, listeners are going to like certain tracks more than others, but overall anyone who enjoys jam bands and progressive music will love this effort by Rusted Root. It's the best intro Rusted Root album for beginning listeners of the band, because of it's catchy tunes and easy to follow songs. The highlights of the album, in my opinion, are "Back To Earth" (a great album closer), "Cat Turned Blue" (awesome drum beat on this song), "Send Me On My Way" (of course), "Matyr" (amazing), and "Ecstasy" (a trippy, jammin' tune). So, go download those tracks and then buy the album and support the band. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is because it's lacking something, but I haven't figured out what it is yet. When I do, I'll let ya'll know. Peace.

Hey folks, Im a 20 year old US Marine, in Japan.
alright, I am going to be honest...I listen to alot of different music...But I have to admit, I am a straight up metalhead...I listen to old Metallica, Ozzy, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, and lots of melodic metal like In Flames, Blind Guardian, Shadowsfall, etc...But even me, as a metalhead, has to admit...I like Rusted Root! I remember, my older sister, Dominica, always listened to this album when we were younger, and I admit, I actually listened to it many many times...And although I am into heavy metal, I like pretty much any music that is emotional, deep, and melodic...and I have to say, I like Rusted Root alot...Lots of energy and emotion in their music. Very very melodic...Their music takes you on a ride to another world, sucks you in...Just like the feeling you get when you get sucked into a good book. Where you feel like you are actually there...Same with Rusted Root, you just close your eyes and think you are somewhere far away. I esspecially like the song Cruel Sun, very emotional song. Good stuff, good stuff!!!

When I first got into Rusted Root, I started from their very first album and I got hooked. I thought their sound was amazing. When I first listened to Cruel Sun, I noticed there was a song that I had heard before. The song was Send Me On My Way, the band's best known song. I thought Primal Scream was the best. Anyway, I got more into Rusted Root and I bought their other albums, including When I Woke, their best selling album. I think that people bought the album in 1994 because of Send me on my way. I thought it was a good song when I first heard it, but when my brother got obsessed with the song, I got sick of it. The best songs are the drum inspired ones, like Drum Trip (my personal favorite). If you plan on getting this CD, don't get it because of Send Me On My Way. The CD does better than a pop song. That's not what they're all about. Rain and Back to the Earth are my other two favorites. What am I saying, this whole album rules. If all you want is Send Me On My Way, just put the song into a mix, don't waste your money on one song. For those of you who are Grateful Dead, Phish, String Cheese, or Dave Matthews fans, get this CD. You'll really appreciate this. I think that if you like this CD, you should get all their other CD's. They're worth it!

Ok, this disc is worth the price of admission as a test disc for audio gear. A high-end dealer in my area uses it, and turned me onto it when I bought my Conrad-Johnson amp. It's a very busy, super-dynamic recording and is great test of an amplifier's ability to resolve information. If everything is working like it should, you should be able to follow a particular instruments amid the often awe-inspiring flurries of percussion. If instruments smear or blur, your amp is over-taxed. The percussion should sound explosive, with natural decay. Bells and cymbal should sound sweet and shimmering. If percussion sounds dull, muffled or harsh, your speakers are rolling off in the mid-treble. A great test of a speaker's dynamic ability and clarity is the last minute and a half of "Cruel Sun" which should keep the vocal distinct and throw a realistic soundstage where each instrument seems to have distinct place. This is a near reference level recording. The performance, while erstwhile is a little sophmoric. The musicianship is at times heart-stoppingly good, but the songwriting is fairly weak, and many of the songs end up sounding awfully similar.
