Editorial Reviews

2012 album from the three time Grammy winning percussionist and Grateful Dead drummer. With Mysterium Tremendum, Hart is pushing the boundaries of what we know as music, creating a genre of his own. For this new work Hart joined with long time Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter to pen the words for these songs. ''Hunter is a bold visionary writer who knows where I am going with this music,'' says Hart. ''He is indispensable to the weave of this story.''

As a consummate music buyer this is my top pick for 2012 so far. It is my belief that seldom does the best music ever get heard. This cd deserves to be heard and then heard again and again. It breaks new ground for Hart. It it catchy, it has hooks, you will sing along to it. It is a solid album with great performances and writing and a sonic depth that is seldom heard. This is a purchase for both the music lover and the true audiophile.

Of interest is that in sound it is a true break away from any semblance of the Grateful Dead. Being a Deadhead I thought this might be a disappointment; but in truth it follows suit with "7 Walkers" and Phil Lesh's "There and Back again" in that it dares to break new ground and is "further" ahead for it.

This is a truly astounding, solid cd with no filler. I hoestly love every track. If I had to pick highlights it would probably be: "Slow Joe Rain", "Cut the Deck", "Let there be Light" and Through Endless Skies" but that is a disservice to so many other great songs contained on this collection.

What makes this CD so Special? It has Hart...the pun is intended and deserved. In having heart it has a music for the masses top layer, and a depth of thought and intelligence under layer that adds an appeal that adds dimension even after repeated listens.

The band is listed simply as "performers" Although I could site some great guests and players on this cd, the strength of the cd is the performance. Simply- the sound is unified and everyone stands out; which makes it unnecessary to credit the individual. It is proper to offer a nod to Robert Hunter for the lyrics to many of the songs, but only because both the music and the lyrics resonate in your head long after the cd is over.

While I love hearing Phil and Bobby tour with Furthur, it's exciting to hear new material from original members of the Grateful Dead. This album combines new lyrics from Robert Hunter, with interesting new rhythms with a techno beat and bluesy vocals. Mickey has taken World Music to a new level- Extra Terrestrial. Listen and enjoy.

This is the best since Music Box. The groove is on, vocals teetering on Peter Gabriel and plenty of space music, but not to much. The ambiance of this album is wonderful. Turn it up and enjoy the trip!

I'm very pleased to be the fifth review for this album and everyone is a five star. From start to finish - over seventy minutes - the music just lifts off into wonderful compositions. The band and soulful singers are very much at home moving the entire proceedings to the next level. If you have the chance to see this project live you should definitely do so. I had the pleasure to catch them last night and looked forward to hearing everyone of the compositions on here, most of which they did play :). In rhythm

Mickey never seems to disappoint . . . who would have thought the Grateful Dead drummers would be the only remaining members putting out consistent new music post GD years? I was a bit leary with this release thinking it would be a bit too spacey for my liking. But like with all Mickey's albums, I was very pleasently surprised. Solid songwriting & solid lyrics via Robert Hunter seems to always be a winning formula.

Last night at the Cleveland Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Mickey Hart Band played for almost 2 hours on a stage surrounded by Rock Hall members - and man did they sound awesome! They did many tunes from this album as well as old Grateful Dead favorites as this was the opening night of the Dead exhibition. They could not have sounded any better and because of that, this CD was just purchased. The snippets you hear on-line for each song do NOT give the songs justice - they are amazing if you like techno based music with a fantastic groovy beat.
