iTunes Editors’ Notes

Stereo Rodeo is Rusted Root’s first studio album since 2002’s Welcome to My Party and it's chock-full of fun, insightful, catchy, well-crafted songs. “Dance In the Middle” opens with a driving, semi-sinister voodoo vibe before segueing into Latin-tinged take on “Suspicious Minds” — turning an Elvis Presley hit into a rootsy tune that boasts a the kind of saxophone solo that could turn the minds of people who hate saxophone solos. Michael Glabicki’s powerful voice takes control of “Weary Bones,” a poetic ballad that could have only been written by someone who honestly understands the aches and trials of playing in a hard touring band. Shifting gears into the kind of wah-wah-laden funk rock the band are known for, “Bad Son” muses on the problems of the Dubya administration with empathetic lyrics about how his childhood insecurities helped run the country. The title track is so mature that it almost sounds like Radiohead.

Customer Reviews

A MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT

I cannot think of an album that I more eagerly awaited than this one. Truly one of the most pure, talented, and creative bands of all time....but if this was the best they could come up with after that long of a span since the last album....I wish they'd go back to the drawing board. Still would goto the ends of the earth to see them live, but so bummed out with this project...

More to come

Ok, so I'm friends with them, they already started their next album, I don't know for certian but I heard there were a lot of more upbeat songs coming, much more like their earlier stuff. But trust me, it won't be the same long, long wait that it was for this one.

Stereo Rodeo

Rusted Root is back! It's been 7 years since we've gotten brand new studio material from Rusted Root, and this album is worth the wait! Michael has recently been quoted as saying how much he hates being labeled in a certain "genre" and this album shows many different aspects of Rusted Root's music. All of them are very Root at heart, and have that jamming feel. It's all about the music here, and they really connect. Dance in the Middle is my favorite. Keeps me movin' & groovin'! But don't rule out the cinematic feel of Stereo Rodeo or the new Latin beat to the only cover on the album, Suspicious Minds. ROCK On Root. Rock on.
