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 As fresh as ever December 28, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I guess it is about time I buy another Widespread Panic CD. I've just about worn this one out. But, I've enjoyed it so much that I'm a little gunshy in buying one of their new CD's. Afraid I might be disappointed. Panic was such a refreshing althernative to the grunge rock that dominated the scene in the late 80's. Their cool laid back style had many well springs. The Allman Brothers come immediately to mind. But, these are no imitators, they have a style and energy all their own. The music covers a lot of ground, picking up on a number of pleasant riffs, including those of John Coltrane. One of the Allman Bros' favorites as well. I can't say I have a favorite on this CD, since the songs fit together almost seemlessly into an extended jam sesssion, which is perfect listening for a lazy afternoon, musing on such songs like "Coconut." This CD includes some additional tracks like "Holden Oversoul," which stretch out the listening experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finger-lickin' Panic! August 27, 1998
Format:Audio CD
As John Bell (JB) croons on "Contentment Blues", a new addition to the Capricorn release of "Space Wrangler", "I love my chicken" you know you've stumbled upon some Southern-fried goodness that would make a certain Colonel roll over in his grave! There is something to be said for a band that can sing songs about all-American subjects such as baseball, cold beers and fried chicken. Yet the complexity of the jams far exceeds the intentional simplicity of some of their lyrical concepts.
In the canon of Widespread Panic, "Space Wrangler" is perhaps most often mentioned as the favorite album. And with good reason - it contains quintessential Panic material including "Chilly Water", the title cut, and "Porch Song" which includes the refrain "Havin' a good time/Here today" and has been aptly and affectionately dubbed 'Panic's Theme'. It also contains the first song that the band wrote together - the catchy tune, with a not-so-subtle Grateful Dead influence, "Coconut". Incidently, "Coconut" is played only on special occasions (Halloween, for one) but was a staple of old live performances. Not to be overlooked on this album are the incredible renditions of J.J. Cale's "Travelin' Light" and all-time country blues legend Robert Johnson's "Me and the Devil Blues". Panic friend David Blackmon accompanies the boys on fiddle just in case you had forgotten some of their roots.
Anyway, if you want something that tastes good, this is a real treat. Mmmm..."my chicken tastes good".

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential for true Panic freaks...I'm one. January 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you're new to WSP, maybe you need to start with the band's second, self-titled release which is an absolute jewel. You can sense the potential the band has on "Spance Wrangler" which comes to fruition on "Widespread Panic." "Light Fuse...", "Til the Medicine Takes" and "Widespread Panic" are essentials for any music lover. The version of "Space Wrangler" will disappoint you if you've ever heard the live version. There are several great tracks and a couple of so-so tracks here, also. If you're a died in the wool Spreadhead, you must own this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate college album August 28, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In the last decade Space Wrangler has transformed college kids musical tastes across the country more so than any other album out there. Panic takes you to another world of good, rockin, dreamy music on this CD. While Panic's live shows are legendary, this album has a different sound and feel than their sound live. But seriously whether you lived down south or not this is one of the classic albums of today's age. In twenty years this album will be still getting lots of playtime from future generations. All tracks are top notch, not really a bad song on the whole disk. Music sounds excellent but the recording comes off as garage like, which I enjoy very much. The band is still together today strong as ever with thier constantlive touring. This is their finest studio effort and is a must own for anyone looking to hear something new and different. This album sounds as good today as it did when I first heard it in 89. Meanwhile regular pop music continues to move further away from "true music" One thing Panic will always stand for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do Panic! March 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Recomendations can sometimes leave one less than impressed. That was the case for Widespread Panic's Space Wrangler. Having a music lover for a father and father's day means only one thing--buy the old man a CD. But what to buy? He has everything he wants. After telling the clerk my dad was into Dire Straits, Steely Dan, stuff like that, the clerk handed me Space Wrangler saying "if he likes that, he'll love this". A year later, I borrowed the dusty CD and experienced a musical revelation. Space Wrangler's tracks begin innocently enough and then build into tightly-knit, guitar-led jam explosions that have reinvigorated the scene since it's release. Space Wrangler's tracks uniquely meld elements of rock, country, blues, blue grass , and jazz to create the sound now familiar to fans of Panic shows everywhere. Panic anthems like the title cut and "Travelin'Light" are featured. The drum-driven "Coconuts" and the blusey "Me and The Devil" are personal favorites. A solid CD from top to bottom, Space Wrangler is not only a must have, its a must play.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great album
I am rather new to this band. This album and "Light Fuse - Get Away" are my favorites. Quirky style, kind of like Grateful Dead meets Allman Bros.
