Do you ever pick up an album, look at the cracked jewel case, count the nicks, thumb-prints and scuff-marks on the CD, and realize that not only can't you remember where or when you bought it but that you've had it so long & enjoyed it so much you can't imagine your music collection without it? That's experience I have with "Dulcinea." It's that good. Part of me shakes my head at the fact that it isn't better known and part of me is selfishly glad that so few of us share the secret.

I want to qualify these remarks by saying that I grew up in the big-hair 'n lipstick 80s and when I got to college militantly opposed Satan and all of his works -- by which I mean "alternative music." I used to say, with the air of actually making a clever remark, that it represented an "alternative to quality." Ha ha! (slap). In my mind "quality" was represented by Motely Crue. Luckily, I also liked the Police, which at least forced one corner of my mind to be receptive to music that didn't suck.

Once in a great while, an album comes along that I do not think of as a collection of individual songs but rather as a piece of whole cloth woven together by a single, unifying mood. I've listened to this album so many times it's practically worn smooth, yet I couldn't name half the songs on it. This is because, like Mazzy Star's "So Tonight That I Might See", I believe "Dulcinea" was meant to be swallowed whole, from first to last song.

Having been with Toad since their debut (Bread and Circus), through their demise, I believe this is Toad at the apex of their career-- both musically and commercially. To put things in perspective, when I saw them for this tour, Hootie and the Blowfish-- who eventually way surpassed Toad in popularity before fading into oblivion-- opened for Toad. This CD was in HEAVY rotation in my players for years. It is full of the best of what Toad has to offer-- heartfelt, gentle (but sometimes edgy), superb harmonies, melodies, and it is also the tightest they have sounded.

There is no filler on this CD. Each song is distinctive and immediately pleasing to the ear, from the first listen to the thousandth. What I have always been a fan of with Toad was the acoustic base, with Glenn's mellow and reassuring lead vocals, and Todd's ringing lead guitar, and the rest of the band's superb harmony. This CD has it all, and even a great song sung by Todd (Inside).

There are a few heart-tugging numbers-- Crowing and Windmills are great, soft, sweet songs. And Something's Always Wrong is a classic.

Overall, you can't beat this CD for pure listenability. If you are only going to own one Toad CD, this is the one, and it would certainly be a super desert island companion-- it never fades or gets old. I can't believe its been 10 years since this CD came out, because I still listen to it.

Ok, sorry for that, but I couldn't resist. Anyway, Toad the Wet Sprocket were truly something different, and something great. One of the pioneering bands of the alternative rock scene, they had melodic sense that is nearly unrivaled in this or any other genre. "Dulcinea" is 12 tracks of pure melodic rock brilliance. The musicianship won't wow any guitar prodigies from Berklee, but it is perfect nonetheless. The whole album is awash with mesmerizing layers of guitar and keyboard melodies, perfectly complementing the amazing Glen Phillips, who has about the most perfect melodic tone you can expect to hear.

There is plenty of diversity here as well. From the uplifting and catchy "Fly From Heaven", to the brooding "Woodburning", to the energetic rock of "Fall Down" and "Something's Always Wrong", to the truly divine balladry of "Crowing", to what is quite simply one of the most beautiful songs ever, "Windmills". The band shakes things up a bit with "Stupid" and "Nanci", which are shorter, more light-hearted country-folk type songs. "Inside" is pure melodic goodness, with Glen singing some excellent high falsetto notes, and "Begin" is dark and haunting, with a deceptively positive lyrical message. The closing track, "Reincarnation Song", is the biggest surprise at all. It is slow and plodding at first, finally building to a stunning climax, with Glen singing in a more fragile, scratchy Neil Young type voice, completely contradicting his richer and more powerful tone on every previous track. A very unexpected but excellent way to end the album.

There's really not much to say here other than this album is fantastic.

One of my all time favorite albums. "Something's Always Wrong" still brings me to tear, great harmony, great musicianship, still incredible to this day and doesn't feel dated. I think this along with Counting Crows "August and Everything After" could battle for my favorite album of the earlt 90's. Don't sleep on this album or Toad.
