Overview

Dirty Side Down, the 11th studio album from Widespread Panic, is comprised of 12 songs that incorporate Panic's unique blend of rock, jazz, and blues-inspired textures into songs flowing with melody, rhythm, and emotion.

After 24 years, Widespread Panic remain one of America's best live bands and most successful touring acts. Aside from their legendary live shows, they continue to raise the bar in their genre through their songwriting, and Dirty Side Down is a prime example.

Band members John Bell (vocals/guitar), John Hermann (keyboards/vocals), Jimmy Herring (lead guitar), Todd Nance (drums/vocals), Domingo Ortiz (percussion) and Dave Schools (bass/vocals) combine their efforts by writing or co-writing 10 of the album's 12 tracks. Songs such as the dark, multi-layered opener "Saint Ex," the boogie blues of "Jaded Tourist," or the laid back Southern nature of "When You Coming Home" showcase Widespread Panic's dynamic range as songwriters and musicians.

I first fired up the iPod and listened to the opening track, "Saint Ex," while flying over the Atlantic Ocean at over 30,000 feet in the pitch black sky around 2 a.m. Staring out the plane's window into the pitch black sky at 2 a.m., tilting my head upwards to view the cold, white moon and stars and finally gazing down upon the silent, white clouds below only this track could have complemented the occasion properly; a truly transcendental moment. From start to finish this album delivers and that's all that can really be said. As a long time Panic fan, the last 3 studio releases just haven't lived up to the studio albums in the days of Mikey. With this album that has all changed. A truly great album and a must have for Panic fans.
