This album put me in a quite emotional, reflexive mood. It was a nice experience. It's that beautiful blending between country, folk, and psychedelic rock that the Grateful Dead does very well. Rather rootsy too. A-side is better and more touching, B-side sounds the same (in a good way, but the same) but it has "Casey Jones", the most acclaimed track. However, my favorite is "Dire Wolf". That chorus is just frightful: "don't murder me, please". Thank God Jerry ... read more

Not very punchy, but that's the point. A lot of it is just jamming. Still good.

Favorite Tracks: "Casey Jones"
