CD Reviews

It sounds the same
Aaron Miller | Chester Springs, PA USA | 07/01/2000
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This EP is not worth the buy, in my opinion, for three reasons. One, "Virtual Reality", an excellent song which shows Rusted Root's full potential, is on the LP "Remember." Two, the live versions of "Send Me On My Way" and "Cruel Sun" sound exactly like the recordings on the LP "When I Woke." Three, of all the material they have released, "Big White Bird" is probably the worst example of the band's talent. This leaves only the song "Evil Ways", a cover of Santana's hit. They do an excellent job on that track (in fact, I like their rendition better than Santana's). So, this album is only for hardcore Rusted Root fans who wish to collect all their released material."
Only for Rusted Root fanatics

"This CD isn't worth buying.It is only 28 minutes long. Two tracks are available on the original CD's. I didn't think that Evil Ways was anything special. Big White Bird isn't one of the better Rusted Root tunes. The only thing of interest is the slightly extended version of Cruel Sun (it is 10 minutes). Note that this CD also comes packaged with the special edition of the Rusted Root live VHS tape. It comes in a special box, big enough to fit both the CD and the tape. If you are a Rusted Root fanatic, that is the one to get. But be careful, not all versions of the video tape come with the CD. If you are looking for an introduction to Rusted Root, get When I woke."
Great Stuff

"Rusted Root's EP is a tremendous, albeit short, effort from the percussion based jamband. The album's unquestionable highlight is the 10+ minute rendition of Cruel Sun, a gem of psychedlic wonder."
