This cuts back significantly on winding jams, upping the ante with tight songs and performances, a clean muscular production, and a lack of vocal histrionics from Popper
Entertainment WeeklyWhat's always lifted them above their peers are Popper's percussive harmonica and those wonderfully melodic songs -- both of which are abundant here. [6/1/01, p.90]
Rather than dwell on tragedy or sulk through an album of moodier blues, they deliver a batch of radio-friendly tunes reminiscent of their commercial breakthrough, Four.
Their songwriting sometimes comes up short, but these avatars of the Nineties jam-band movement know they can placate their fans with a little showboating.
On Bridge, they're still traveling down the long and winding improvisational road, with most of the tracks averaging around five minutes in length (as is true with most of their studio albums). This time out, though, the songs feel like they're twice that.
BlenderIn attempting to be energetic, the band merely sounds busy. [Jun/Jul 2001, p.105]
The real crime is that these guys are good musicians who happen to have horrible taste.

It's a solid 5/10, nothing spectacular, but I rated it 0 so as to bring the user rating down to a less deceptive level. It's not terrible, but it's not great. It's just another bland, conservative, contemporary country-ish album.… Expand
