Biography

“The coolest part of this album is that, in the end, it really sounds like us, maybe more so than any of the other albums that we’ve done.” – Bill Nershi, The String Cheese Incident

For a band like The String Cheese Incident, it’s odd to think that 20 years into a remarkable career, their ninth album - and first studio album in nine years - would really ... Read more in Amazon's String Cheese Incident Store

5.0 out of 5 stars IN A CLASS OF ITS OWN June 2, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Born on the wrong planet is full diverse styles of music. Bluegrass, jazz-rap, country, latin, rock and whatever that drum-thing might be ("Diggin In"). Its full of songs, but its mainly an instrumental affair. The quality of playing is astoundingly good. I say this for 2 reasons, it is not only unusually spirited & inspired for a studio recording, but the detail & subtlety is extreemly fine. The vocals are not to be overlooked though, the harmonies are natural in the way that Poco`s are. I have never heard such fine intrumental playing emerge from a studio before. Even John Coltranes records had troughs etc. This is in a class of its own. This band (like so many) is not known in my country, mores the pity! Rudi Samborski

5.0 out of 5 stars born on my planet August 23, 2001
By cat
Format:Audio CD
Never thought anyone could tear me away from my beloved Phish, but I have to say that String Cheese is now number one in my heart and ears...an awesome multifaceted group out of Boulder, always experimenting with different sounds and genres, SCI never fails to get my booty moving to beautiful jammy tunes. They also translate really well from performing live to album recordings - I recommend this cd over their live one performed at the Fox Theatre in Boulder. Tracks 9 and 10 are my babies, transporting me to a funkycalypsopercussion-driven heaven.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for Everyone February 2, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The String Cheese Incident's first studio release contains studio versions of some of SCI's classics such as Texas, Black Clouds, Johnny Cash and Jellyfish. Born on the Wrong Planet is a must for all hardcore String Cheese fans. It shows a different side of String Cheese, the more acoustic, bluegrass, or just plain wacky element of this extremely versatile band.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Kyle! :-( January 31, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is the only String Cheese album that was made before keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth joined the band. It's a pretty good album, though. Nershi and Kang are great here, especially on the tracks that have a bluegrass sound. It's a fun album to listen to and the musicianship is excellent. However, Kyle's absence bothers me quite a bit. Songs such as "Texas," "Jellyfish," and "Black Clouds" don't sound nearly as good as they do on the live album "Carnival '99," an album that has Kyle on it. Only get this album if you are a diehard String Cheese fan or if you like albums that have a good amount of bluegrass.
