Customer Reviews

This is the best band that you may have never heard of.
"dankgreenbud"
The band put more effort on showing some of their improvisational ability on this album, where as on anchor drops its a more refined, dense studio album.
Mike Roch
If you have, you know what they are capable of and you will think its great.

Many people have never heard of this band before. They are still pretty darn small playing in mid-size venues like The Barrymore Theatre (Madison, WI), Clearwater Theatre (W.Dundee, IL), The Metro (Chicago, IL) and many others across the nation. Do yourself a favor and buy this cd and catch them in concert.
As for the cd, great character and sound. Many fan favorites like the evil yet playful "Prowler" and "Andy's Last Beer". The crazy "Nothing Too Fancy", the funky heavy sound of "Ringo" and so much more.
People have a hard time describing who they sound like, and the answer is... like no one. Fans of Rush, Phish, Zappa, Metallica, bluegrass, country, and rap will all be pleased with this band.

this is an incredible indie release from the most talented band on the music scene today. this private label pressing is sure to be a collectors item and eventual 'Top 100 Album OF ALL-TIME' listing.
YES, it's that good. every song on this disc is just amazing. you will listen to the disc straight thru once and then immediately press the REPEAT button and listen to it again. and again, and again.....
keep your eyes peeled for Umphrey's McGee playing in your city and don't miss an opportunity to see these guys live. check [...] for current tour dates.
and the best news is that once you become addicted to UM, there is a plethora of live Umphrey's McGee shows available for download on the internet to satisfy your cravings, as well as a rabid fan base of friendly Umphreaks to chat with about the bands latest activities.
Umphrey's McGee also recently released a DVD titled 'Live at the Lake Coast' that you can order here as well, and should do so ASAP before it sells out!
bottom line is that if you're not dialed into the Umphrey's McGee scene, you are missing the boat - so don't be left behind and order some Umphrey's McGee now!

The thing that I love most about Umphrey's is that they don't confine themselves to a label. The term "jam-band" does not serve them justice, as right away it leads to people's perceptions that they are just another phish wannabe. One listen to anchor drops or local band does ok shows how versatile this group is. My favorites on local band does ok include White Man's Moccasins (originally Ali), Hurt Bird Bath (although it's even better live), Uncle Wally, Andy's Last Beer, and Nothing too Fancy. The band put more effort on showing some of their improvisational ability on this album, where as on anchor drops its a more refined, dense studio album. Personally I prefer anchor drops, but this album is also great. Stay tuned for their next album which is not so far away.

Umphrey's McGee came out of South Bend Indiana building a loyal following mainly by constant touring. The band straddles the line between jam band and progressive rock often being compared to bands like Phish and The Grateful Dead. Personally I was never a big fan of either of the above mentioned bands, but I enjoy most of what Umphrey's does. I really think it is the prog element of this band that brings their sound more to my personal taste. One thing that this album demonstrates is that this band can pull off just about any musical style there is. They are all over the place stylistically with plenty of instrumental fireworks to please jam and prog fans alike. The vocals are nothing spectacular and their lyrics are serviceable, but nothing mind blowing (better than Phish's however). Highlights include "Andy's Last Beer", "Ringo", "Prowler", "Uncle Wally" and "Nothing Too Fancy". This album seems to come the closest of their studio discs to capturing the band's live sound, although live many of these tracks are stretched out far beyond what you hear here. I give this one a solid 4 stars.

In a fascinating mix of styles, expert musicians groove, cruise, and drive, mainly in instrumental mode, but with well placed, tasty vocals. Jams drift on and on, ever shifting, but always impeccably choreographed and played. Styles range from Midwestern classic rock to New Orleans ska to Dixie Dregs and Little Feat jams to Frank Zappa precision craziness to Sting jazzy pop, with healthy doses of funk and smooth jazz in between. It's a pleasure to hear such jammy music played with such precision. The more I hear, the more I like it; It will grow on me. Standouts: tr 7--Empire State. Polyrhythmic jam in marimba and percussion keeps me ever off balance. tr 8--White man's moccasins. Beautiful, tight, and tangy, ranging from dark, Latin-accented Zappa to light, hard, lyrical lines. tr 9--Prowler. Virtuoso fireworks build in a polystylistic stew that encompasses much of their range. tr 14--Nothing too fancy. Back and forth between big, driving blues and a quickly shifting mélange of ska, Zappa, Dregs, and blues. [69:57]

Tyler, clearly you don't much about good musicianship. This band, especially the guitarists are the some of the best musicians around today. Umphrey's is not trying to be anybody, that is the most inaccurate statement i've heard in awile. In fact it's the opposite, they blend soo many different styles and genres, from blues to jazz to reggae to rock, that you cannot put a finger on their music. They can play anything and they are the tightest band around right now. Go see them live and you will be amazed and don't listen to "tyler"
