Everybody loves surprises, that feeling of not knowing what might be around the next corner -- and that’s exactly the vibe that Widespread Panic gives off every time they unleash a new album. Sometimes that means taking listeners on a nice, smooth ride, and sometimes it means making ‘em hold on tight, but either way, it means the trip is gonna be worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Darkhorse Favorite WSP Record! December 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For some reason, B&B is criminally overlooked among folks I've talked to about the band. I consider myself well versed in the recordings of Panic, and something about this album has latched it's claws onto me. I can not get enough of it. Another reviewer noted correctly that this is a very focused, classic-rock sounding effort. As my tastes have changed and matured over the years (trending away from drawn-out jam-rock), the songs here have stood out as perfectly crafted nuggets of brilliance.

The album's 2 epics, "Rebirtha" and "Greta", are live Panic staples that exude that jammy spirit most fans adore. The former features the late Mike Houser's finest playing caught on tape (in my humble opinion).

The production on B&B sparkles w/o feeling overdone or calculated. This is a pristine recording with just the right amount of ambience. Classic Rock opener "Radio Child" sets the tone wonderfully for the rest of the 10-song set. "Gradle" may be one of the best unheralded Panic tunes ever written, featuring JB's spot-on-perfect soaring vocals and Houser's triumphant solos. "Glory"'s abrupt time changes and anthemic chorus is the perfect midpoint and setup for the aforementioned monstrosity, "Rebirtha".

Do NOT hesitate if you're looking to dive into a random Panic record! this is your album. Non-Panic, classic Rock fans should really get a kick out of this...

thanks for reading!

4.0 out of 5 stars not the best Panic...but awesome nonetheless May 18, 2000
I was initially introduced to Widespread Panic through listening to a bootlegged live show, so the first time I listened to an actual studio album of theirs, I was quite surprised. The songs actually had beginnings and endings! Having seen them live since then, I can honestly say that they are twenty-thousand times better live. Still, they are awesome in the studio too, and Bombs is my favorite studio album from them. From the keyboard driven driving rock of "Radio Child," to the laid back "Aunt Avis," and "Hope in a Hopeless World," this album is a perfect representation of Widespread Panic even though it is not a live album. The album still contains several jams, but they're simply shortened ("tall boy" and "rebirtha" for example). Personally I think that if you're going to buy a Panic album, get the live CD Light Fuse Get Away, as it shows the band off at their best. However, Bombs is a great CD as well, and serves as a great introductory Cd to those unfamiliar with the band.

4.0 out of 5 stars Once upon a time.. March 21, 2002
Format:Audio CD
..Widespread Panic was a group still in the process of finding their own sound and trying to keep the spirit of southern rock & roll alive. Though they hadn't developed into the distinct entity they are today, though their singer had a tendency to sound like Gregg Allman at times, they built a good following on the strength of albums like this. And though they've done better albums since.. Bombs & Butterflies is still a heck of a fun listen.
One spin of the opener "Radio Child" should rub out any notion that these guys are an ordinary southern-rock band. And if public opinion hadn't tossed so many jam bands into the "Phish wannabe" pile, WP might be just as well-known right now. There's flat-out rock ("Tall Boy," "Radio Child"), some quiet-but-not-sappy moments ("Glory," "Aunt Avis") even a.. well, happy instrumental ("Happy"). This is an album for sunny spring & summer afternoons, a spirited bunch of tunes that'll make those miles on the highway go by before you notice. Pick this one up if you've already heard Don't Tell the Band and Til the Medicine Takes.. or if you just want something a little more focused than the marathon Light Fuse & Get Away. If you like that southern sound the Allmans do so well, though, any one of them will be just fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this band March 6, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I heard a couple tracks from this cd when it came out back in '97 on WRNR,a local progrock station (at least it was back then).Only rock station in the area that would play WSP.Wasn't mainstream enough for the others,i guess.This was my 1st taste of WSP.Went out and bought the cd & Ain't Life Grand as well.Been a Panic-head ever since.

4.0 out of 5 stars Radio album that didnt fly January 24, 2000
Although, personally, the album was tremendous, it did not hit the radio scene as hoped by the Athens GA. based band. The combination of hard rock, r&b, jazz was loved by the proud supporters of the band, but that was all. "Hope in a Hopeless World"--the only song played on the radio did not do well and to no suprise. This song personally, was my least favorite on the album. If you want the best Widespread Panic Album, buy the new album Till the Medicine Takes.
