    This album is definitely a departure from prior work, and doesn't have the immediate beauty of, say, "Singing Joy to the World" or the rollicking Allman Bros-esque jamming of their earlier work. But it definitely is growing on me, and its more stylized sound is definitely not a "staying put".

    It wanders and drifts moodily now and then, but there also some strong songs. [Feb 2012, p.99]

    Tripper is a strummy, breezy delight. [#81, p. 55]
  3. Less dynamic and more ruminative than The Ruminant Band, here are 10 songs and a poky instrumental for country hippies manque and other shaggy folk down on the little luck they ever had.
