"Go to heaven" uneven,
By A Customer
This review is from: Go to Heaven (Audio CD)
Well, there's been much criticism for the title and indeed the sleeve photograph, but actually this Dead record can be judged more favourably on the contents. Side two is a little dark, with the exception of "Saint of Circumstance", but side one contains some jewels. "Feel like a stranger" is very strong, "Alabama Getaway" surprising and "Lost sailor" and "Far from me" quite nice. But prince among ordinary citizens is "Althea", which has become one of my favourite Dead songs.
"Go to Heaven" may not be an excellent studio album, but we all know that the Dead were at their best when playing live. You won't go to heaven with this one, but you won't go unrewarded.
