The Disco Biscuits are an entirely different band today than they were when they first broke out of Philadelphia in the mid-90s.The Disco Biscuits are still very much the pioneers of "trance-fusion," bridging the gap between electronic music and jam bands. After spending the past three years in the studio during breaks in touring they've resurfaced with 'Planet Anthem,' a CD that is undeniably unlike anything else they've ever created before.

This is not the usual Disco Biscuits

"I realize that this is a studio album, so it will stray from their usually live performances. However, the Disco Biscuits are about throwing down nasty beats that gets everyone moving. This album doesn't do that, save 3 songs.
You and I is their 'big hit' in the sense that it got on MTV, but it's a horrible pop song, in fact most of the album sounds like bad pop music, or weak attempts at rap.
If you like the biscuits then don't buy this album."
Best Bisco Studio Effort Yet

"I'm an old school Disco Biscuits fan. I was taping their shows back in the late 90's with only a 100 or so people in the audience. The Disco Biscuits put on great live shows, but their studio albums have always been lacking, with the notable exception of Uncivilized Area.
Planet Anthem is nothing like their live shows, so its going to annoy a lot of "fans," but honestly most jamband studio albums turn out bad anyway. Planet Anthem is mix of jamband, jazz, hiphop, techno and has a lot of guest vocalists too. It reminds me of a blend of Radiohead, Gorillaz, LCD Soundsystem, and a jamband.
I highly recommend Planet Anthem. If you go in to this Album with an open mind, you're going to love it."
