Welcome to My Party

5.0 3
by Rusted Root
 
On their fifth album, Welcome to My Party, Rusted Root decides to delve into full-fledged funkiness, tempering these elastic party grooves with their neo-hippie, acoustic earnestness. Both sides are polished rather heavily by producer Bill Bottrell, resulting in a record that feels like it positions the group to share territory with the Dave Matthews Band.

Overview

On their fifth album, Welcome to My Party, Rusted Root decides to delve into full-fledged funkiness, tempering these elastic party grooves with their neo-hippie, acoustic earnestness. Both sides are polished rather heavily by producer Bill Bottrell, resulting in a record that feels like it positions the group to share territory with the Dave Matthews Band. Since they've been leaning in this direction for a while, this isn't an awkward move. Rusted Root remains as versatile as ever as musicians, and there are moments where the production and their sound gel.

Norin731, I heard that Jim quit the band a couple of years ago (after the last album was released.) But, one of the orig. female singers is back--yea! For everyone else...this album is a must-have for all RR fans. If you've missed RR, go to their website at rustedroot.com. It's totally different than what it used to be a few years ago, and really cool, with lots of pics and new info. They are touring this spring/summer.

Go see them live.

Of course they are great live, but this is their best studio effort in years. I'm impressed with the new feel of the songs. Does anyone know what happened to Jim Dispirito?
