This album has a different producer than most of Galactic's do. It feels a bit more grounded in toe-tapping rhythms and recognizable lyrics than some of Galactic's trippier early tracks. There are quite a few good jams on this one: "Bittersweet", "Gypsy Fade", and "All Behind You Now" jump out as highlights. Not easy to find in CD form (for a good price, anyway), and comes in a conventional jewel case with not much going on aesthetically (as opposed to some of the very nice slipcases for their newer albums) but definitely an album worth searching for.
To me, it feels like the transitional point between Old Galactic (funk jams with one steady vocalist), and New Galactic (stylistically diverse collaborations with New Orleans musicians of all sorts). There are no guests on this album, but there is a variety of styles.
