Album Review

Widespread Panic's third album offers 14 southern-fried rock songs, some of which have become the band's most-loved show stoppers. It's also the first album to feature John "JoJo" Herman's bluesy key pecking. Everyday has been criticized for sounding too uniform. Each track does feature the band's signature loud guitar and bass, jam-rock style, but after a couple of listens the tracks distinguish themselves. From the softly driving "Pilgrims" to the bouncing exuberance of "Wondering," John Bell's emotive vocals and the meaningful lyrics take the listener on a journey through a series of vignettes. "Diner" is sung from the point of view of a bum while he watches the waitress. "She's like natural music anyway she moves," he sings. "Hatfield" is the true story of a Native American who was called upon to perform a rain dance during a draught in Los Angeles. The song begins very softly like raindrops and builds into a lightening storm of guitar and percussive sounds. The poignant "Papa's Home" is perhaps the best example of how Widespread Panic can begin a song softly and build it into an all-out jam, with the help of percussionist Domingo "Sonny" Ortiz's skin slapping. Everyday is considered by fans to be one of the band's best albums, despite its very limited radio play. The subtlety of the band's style is unaltered on this disc. The slice-of-life story lyrics, the tight musicianship that builds and falls with the songs' emotions, and extended song length are all unhampered by the pressure for a radio friendly sound.

Customer Reviews

A Masterpiece

Everyday is most likely Panic's best studio album. This is the first album with JoJo Herman on the keyboards, making it a glimpse into what was to come. This album is littered with classics from Papas's Home to Diner to Postcard. The album elequently combines the genius of Pilgrims, the story of Hatfield, and the driving beat of Henry Parsons Died. A must own for any Jammy!

Mr. Knowitall

As a fan for over 20 years and having been to numerous shows, this is my favorite panic studio album. Lots of great memories, this is when I and my friends were really pulled in and realized the greatness of this band. Definately has more of a live feel as they are allowed to stretch out and jam.
Great, timeless album to get introduced to panic as there are some real smokers on here- check out papas coming home and Diner for some classic Mikey Houser jams. Definately a critically underrated album but really who cares, you won't even find it in a Rolling Stones Top 500- shows you what they know.
The greatest and my favorite band and
I will always listen to Panic... Everyday.

One of the many neo-hippie jam bands inheriting the road-warrior mantle left behind by the Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic established a devout grassroots following on the strength of constant touring and a loose, rootsy brand of Southern rock informed by jazz and blues textures. The group's origins date to 1982, when vocalist John Bell and guitarist Mike Houser first began playing together while attending college in Athens, Georgia.
