CD Reviews

The Dead's hit album
Dark Star-The Other One | The Bus To Never Ever Land | 10/13/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This one is probably easier for some to digest as it has a more accessible sound than some of the other albums by the band. This was the album that put the band on the map commercially speaking. Those of us who were already fans at the time found it a little hard to take due to the fact that it has such a radio friendly feel. This new version has bonus tracks but some of them are only so-so. One of the songs "My Brother Esau" was a bonus track on the cassette when the album was first released. The cassette had slightly different sequencing and was arranged better. I wish for this release that they would have gone with the cassette sequencing but then I wished that back in '87 too."
Commercial Success
C. Jacobson | New York | 06/28/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the Dark is the album that seemed to catapult the Dead to new commercial success. It's also the album that in my opinion was the beginning of the end... It lead to Dead shows becoming a "scene" for people who went not to listen to the music, but to be seen at a Dead show as wasted and drunk as they could get. And no more Dead shows at theaters...if you want to catch 'em now you go to a football stadium...

Anyway, back to the album... Hey, it's no Workingmans Dead, or American Beauty, or Wake of the Flood; what it is though is a disc with a lot of good tunes that you'll always remember and want to play again and again. And when you come down to it, isn't that what you want from a record in the first place?!"
One Of The Grateful Dead's Best Albums Ever
The Footpath Cowboy | Kingston, NY United States | 06/08/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Along with AMERICAN BEAUTY and WORKINGMAN'S DEAD, IN THE DARK is one of the greatest Grateful Dead albums ever. Featuring numerous great songs, including "Touch Of Grey" (highly inspirational), "Throwing Stones", "Hell In A Bucket" (both highly cautionary), "West L.A. Fadeaway", "Push Comes To Shove", and "Tons Of Steel", the band sounds rejuvenated by Jerry Garcia's learning to play guitar again after lapsing into a diabetic coma the year before. This is the album where the Grateful Dead finally made the Top Ten, and with great music to boot, which was highly refreshing in an era of prefab teen pap."
