'Til the Medicine Takes

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Jon Dolan
Not just a loose-limbed jam band with sprawling solos and shambling boogie rhythms, Athens, Georgia's Widespread Panic have learned as much from Southern Gothic songwriter and one-time collaborator Vic Chesnutt as they have from Duane Allman. Old feeling, but dashed with new wave and soul, 'TIL THE MEDICINE TAKES travels a terrain where dense musicianship and eerie evocations work together to infuse a conservative rock aesthetic with wistful ambience and songcraft that, if not exactly tight, certainly doesn't ramble on like lesser examples of jam rock. Rarely do these songs last more than five minutes, and they're almost always propulsive. Throw in a hat-tipping to '90s ...

Old feeling, but dashed with new wave and soul, 'TIL THE MEDICINE TAKES travels a terrain where dense musicianship and eerie evocations work together to infuse a conservative rock aesthetic with wistful ambience and songcraft that, if not exactly tight, certainly doesn't ramble on like lesser examples of jam rock. Rarely do these songs last more than five minutes, and they're almost always propulsive. Throw in a hat-tipping to '90s hip-hop, via the turntable scratching on "Dyin' Man," and you've got a Southern rock band that ain't just whistling Dixie.
All Music Guide - Mark Morgenstein
Widespread Panic finally makes a studio recording worthy of its legendary live reputation, with Til The Medicine Takes. Only one song clocks in over five minutes, as Panic tones down the noodling and tears into well-structured songs. "Blue Indian" and "Nobody's Loss" show Panic's debt to the hippie-updated folk of the Grateful Dead, and "All Time Low" sounds like a lost '60s classic rock staple. JoJo Hermann's keyboards highlight much of the album, especially "One Arm Steve," but the allure of Til The Medicine Takes, much like a Panic concert, is the communal vibe that everyone has contributed to a successful experience, including the listener.
