I've been listening to their new album a lot today....I have to say I really like it Definitely different from Panic past, but without Mikey that's understandable. This new album has a little bit of everything...a little country, a little pop ditty, some hard rocking numbers, several acoustic based songs and a 10 minute industrial like space jam as a hidden track...it all works...

Anyone else have it? What do you think?

He said they got 4 songs and they all had birthday cake too. He was glad that he went even though it was a long ride and he is on crutches and drove there himself.

i just got the cd today and i'm about halfway through it. so far, i like it, but wish there were a few more up-tempo songs on there. then again, panic albums seem to grow on me after repeated listens.

i really like "sparks fly" and "counting train cars".

hey sandman, how do i find the hidden track and what other cd's do you know if that have hidden tracks on them? the only one i know of is one at the end of "nevermind".

I have only had a chance to listen all the way through 3 times so these are my early impressions and are subject to change. On the whole I like it. Starts off real strong with tracks 1-4, thus far Fishing and Totured Artist are my favorites. 5 and 6 sound like pop crap to me, not trying to offend you tfhello just my opinion. I am on the Panic listserv and I have heard many who say they enjoy those two (Sparks Fly and Counting Train Cars) alot, it got my wondering if it has to do with when you got into the band and which discs of their's you enjoy the most. Myself I like the stuff from Ain't Life Grand and back the best with their 2nd disc (Self titled aka "Mom's Kitchen) being my favorite. I guess I like the more moody and dark Panic tunes better, which I think is why I am enjoying "Ball" thus far. Anyways to continue I fell like they get back on track with songs 7 and 8, particularly digging the JB solo tune "Longer Look". JB's vocals are fantastic through the whole cd, he really stepped it up! Going by memory the last 5 songs are a little hazy but I know I have been enjoying Nebulos (Sp. ?) and Montrosity the best of the remaining tunes. Overall I think the disc is a keeper and I am sure it will be holding down my cd player for awhile. I would definitely reccomend it to anyone. I am looking forward to two nights of Panic in B'ham in a few weeks.

no offense taken ryan...to each his own esp. when it comes to music.

actually, i've been a panic fan for about 10 years now with my first panic purchase being "ain't life grand" and that cd is probably right about the middle for me. my least favorites of theirs are "mom's kitchen" and "dttb"l.

on the other hand, i love "everyday", "space wrangler", "till the medicine takes", and "light fuse, get away"

"monstrosity" and "nebulous" can go...it sounds like they were recorded as they were tuning their instruments.

i guess we can agree to disagree. maybe that's what makes panic so damn good.

peace out

The hidden track is not "really" hidden...just listen to the last song and when it's over there's about 7 seconds of silence and then the jam kind of starts....it has kind of a Tom Waits feel too it....

Ain't Life Grand has a "hidden" track at the end as well...

The last few Panic albums in my opinion have been pretty weak...this one is a solid effort. Nothing can beat their first three albums though...

Well, maybe an ABB album or two

The mailman could be holding it on purpose because he is not happy with all the times he has to walk my mail to the door lately because the bubble mailers don't fit in the box.

tfhello,

My first Panic purchase was Everyday and I remember when Ain't Life Grand came out (the title track and Can't Get High got a lot of airplay in Atlanta), so I would imagine that we have been listening for about the same amount of time. Gotta agree with you about DTTB.

My first three Panic purchases were the first three albums as they came out. I was hooked big time...they will go down as historically three of the best studio albums in my opinion...Those three were so good, that when Ain't Life Grand came out, I hated it as it was nowhere near as good as the first three. As time went on, ALG grew on me to where it's a very enjoyable album now...DTTB and Till the Medicine Takes haven't grown on me yet....

Ball has me hooked all over again with this band...a very enjoyable album from start to finish...

My siter-in-law is a huge Panic fan. She could not believe I had basically never heard themand she sent me a ton-o-shows, mostly from their gigs in Austin TX. ANyway I just do not get it. Can someone share what it is that holds such a huge attraction for so many people...I went out and bot their 3-cd extravaganza-essentially because Derek Trucks was on it....I still could not get into it....I know it isn't for everyone but there seems to be some overlap with ABB fans... what am I missing???

The old saw "If you have to ask, you'll never know," notwithstanding.

Not trying to denegrate anyones music taste just lookin' for a little feedback.

I always kind of thought that if you put the Allman Brothers together with the Grateful Dead and shook it up a bit you'd get Widespread Panic. I think Panic has the power and intensity of the Allmans with the gracefulness and improvisational ability of the Dead. That's just one man's opinion of course

Dude I am so with you.

I got that 3 cd set for the same reason (though more for the "Red Hot Mama " cover). I hadn't felt much vibe in any of the other trax. Don't like the yodeling/country thing much. I had a chance to cop BALL for $9.99, and did so. I really don't know if I like it yet. I do like the bass player though.


Ohhyeahh: that Ben HArper [DAIMONDS ON THE INSIDE is a perfect complement to HTN

i agree pfunk, if you've never listened to or seen panic before, "live in the classic city" is probably not the best first taste. what you want to do is listen to "space wrangler" or if you want something live, listen to "light fuse, get away". i bet you can't listen it without playing the air guitar, tapping your feet, or a combination of both. the first disc is the best driving disc i've ever listened to.

i know this is a bold statement (esp. on an allman website), but i put "light fuse..." just a notch or two below the allman's live fillmore cd...it's that good.

Oh yeah, yesterday. How is that for 2 day friggin delivery! I gave it a listen last night. I am going to have to get a few good listens in. I only like about half the songs on their stuff I have heard. I am not a real big die hard fan but I do like a lot of their tunes. It is something that I have to be in the mood for. Just like with Gov't Mule.

I am a big fan but I was really let down by Ball. Not because it sounded too poppy, which it kinda did, but it just did not sound like Panic. I have still been listening to it a lot and some of the songs are starting to grow on me but they could have done a hell of a lot better.

Love Panic, started seeing them in the 80's before the ABB regrouped and they were one of my main bands for awhile. I still think Space Wrangler is their best CD. To me their melody changes are more subtle than other jam bands and you really have to know the nuances of their songs to enjoy them to the fullest.

Michael Rothchild (Landslide Records) has lots of cool stories about Panic during the early years...we have published some of his comments in Hittin' the Note.
