    The end result is an album that manages to smoothly integrate a lot of Anastasio's diverse musical interests into one highly listenable package.

    Traveler reveals that with its four brand-new songs and revisioned versions of live staples, Anastasio's creative force is healthy and his taste is, as ever, impeccable.

    If Traveler seems too random and scattered for its own good, it's never less than interesting.

    It's not his most cohesive batch of songs.... But for a man who creates songs of which he says, "To me, they're for everybody to play," there's no reason not to include a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

    The arrangements, full of spacious production and abstract beats, can be gorgeous.

    The result isn't exactly Phishy, but it's a merry mishmash, a frothy frolic best appreciated as a sort of senior-spring record.
