"Bob Weir and assorted session hacks get together and produce a real turkey stuffed with generic 80's rock. Forget the name players - this is truly dreck, and easily the worst album ever recorded by a member of the Grateful Dead.

Don't waste your $$$.

Oh, the disillusionment

"So, yes, I was starry eyed and naive to an embarrassing extent, a young deadhead who though Jerry, Bob and Co. could do no wrong. I listened to scratchy, poorly recorded tapes of mediocre shows, not to mention the ridiculous production on some of those late '70's Dead albums, and could hear no wrong. And then...this--in a nutshell, everything awful about the '80's that I was trying to escape by getting into the Dead in the first place, but worse. Dan Hartman and Rick Springfield seriously rocked compared to this dreck. Buy a copy only if really desperate to see just how bad it can get."
An Orwellian nightmare

"1984 was the perfect year for this album: "War is Peace" "Freedom is Slavery" "Garbage is Music". I'm surprised hearing this album didn't kill Jerry on the spot. I actually like the first Midnites album - it's cheese, but it's honest cheese. This is cheese made from the toxic waste of early to mid-eighties rock, when the corporations said, "We're your only access to music - take it or leave it." Well, all music fans, not just deadheads, left this one in the Hefty bag it came in. You can't even find it for sale on the Dead's own website, they know how awful it is.

This is the type of album one makes to get out of a contract. Seriously, if you can listen to a song like "Lifeguard" and think it's good music, you should just download a whole bunch of Menudo onto your iPod, set it for endless repeat, put the earbuds on and never take them off. Real music will just hurt you."
