    Guster on the Rise?

    For those whom have never heard of the band "Guster," you are in for a treat. With their second major-label record deal, the original Tufts University band is on its way up. Their newest album, Keep It Together, is perhaps a little something out of the norm for Guster. Transitioning from a more mellow beat and happy-go-lucky type lyrics, the latest release features a set of songs ranging in style with a subconscious influence on nostalgia and even a little bit of rocking out—minus electric guitars. Originally named “Gus,” the trio began recording songs with a lighthearted beat and old fashioned acoustic guitar with avid bongo drum beats in the background. Over the years Guster has matured their music by incorporating a melodious mix of pleasant beats, shifting rhythms, and amusing vocal mixes between acapella and studio while still maintaining their original harmonic roots. All of these new developments have been compiled into a single album that you won’t be able to take out of your CD player. The album won’t make you want to cry, and it certainly won’t make you want to hit someone, but more importantly Guster’s newest compilation subconsciously entices your senses and intrigues your musical preference that will leave you wanting more. This band has been, and hopefully always will be, a special group with great talent, known to few, with a personable stage presence and incredible mixing techniques of acoustic guitar and hand percussion. Until you put this CD on, you can’t fully appreciate the quality of Guster nor can you understand the love for them. Keep It Together will fulfill all of your musical needs. Whether your mood is sad, happy, mellow, or upbeat, this album will do it for you.

    Guster is God

    There isn't much I could say about Guster other than they are excellent. I just saw Guster in concert for the 2nd time last night at the State Theatre, in Detroit. I guarentee you that you will not listen to a Guster record or visit a Guster concert and not feel better about yourself. Adam, Ryan and Brian, AKA the Thundergod deliver excellent performances especially on Keep it Together. Keep it Together is their 4th album and they defintely get better and better as they go on. The track "I Hope Tomorrow is Like Today" features vocals from Ben Kweller, another outstanding artist. I strongly reccomend that you listen to Keep it Together or any Guster album.

    Keep It Together

    I had never heard of Guster until I heard the song "Amsterdam" on the radio. I could not get it out of my head and basically rushed out to buy the cd, hoping the rest of it was as good as that song. It was. I would fully reccomend this cd! It is awesome!

    Amazing album!

    Guster has explored and exanded upon their own sound and I love it. Their use of instruments and harmonies is right on. The drummer, Brian, really shows his skills as a songwriter on this one too! 'Backyard' and 'Come Downstairs...' are wonderful, the kind of songs that give you chills.
