It's been like 5 years since hookah went into the studio and made an album, and this is the first one since original singer/songwriter John Mullins came back to the band.

It is INCREDIBLE. The songs selection is unique, some of the cd is a retake of the songs on their very first cd (Under Full Sail), some songs are new and have never been recorded. There is something for everyone here, from fairly mellow ballads to serious blues to psychedelic rock journeys.

The songwriting is awesome, the quality of the recordings are the finest, the energy this band brings to this album is unparalleled. It is a must-have for any fan, old or new, and it makes a great intro to ekoostik hookah's music if you don't know them. Everyone I've played it for - my mom, my daughter, my friends - loves it.

A+.

This is a great album, but be forewarned: this is not the same Hookah as today. This is their debut album featuring John Mullins, who was tossed out in 1998 and replaced with Ed McGee, who really changed the dynamic of the band. On UFS, the Grateful Dead's influence is far more evident than on their more recent releases. That said, it should also be noted that although they were most definitely Dead-influenced, they don't mindlessly ape the Dead's style. Hookah is the Dead's children, not their twin brother. They've taken a classic style and made it their own. Standout songs are... all of them! But the songs that I really recommend are "Under Full Sail," Arctic Song," "Lazy River" and "Utopia," which is still a live staple, even 12 years down the road. "One World" is, I think, Hookah's only foray into the overtly political, with some digs at then-president George Bush that could be equally leveled against the current Bush.
The only complaint I have about this album is in "Arctic Song," a song about beating baby seals to death, where a line refers to "men in tuxedoes." I assume this refers to penguins, but penguins are only found in _Ant_arctica! Yes, I'm picking nits, but it still bothers me, especially in such a fabulous song.
Buy this.

This is a move by Hookah to pay some bills and an effort to rehash old glories. Glad Mullins is back, though.

I'll be totally upfront, I didn't like the original Under Full Sail when I first listened to it. I found it slow, plodding, and uninteresting. Even now, after all this time, even when those songs are played better, by older and more experienced musicians, I still don't like it. They're boring songs. Although this version is much better than the original, the songs just weren't that good to begin with. I would have rather they went into the studio and wrote all new material, even if it wasn't that great, at least it would have had some novelty. This is stale. I've been a fan of the band for over 15 years, I own every album (on real media no less) and there are only two albums I don't like: Under Full Sail, and Under Full Sail: IACT. I can recommend every other album from the band (except maybe the lackluster Brij), but I can't recommend this or the original Under Full Sail to anyone.
