Amazing. There's no other word to describe Guster. Ryan Miller and Adam Gardner provide classic guitar chords while Brian Rozenworcel creates the tempo on his rather unusal choice of percussion, bongo drums. Brian has been deemed the Thundergod and rightly so. He plays his drums savagely, sometimes even making his hands bleed. With such passion behind their music, it's no wonder Guster have developed a cult following. College-kid favorites, Ryan, Adam, and Brian produce music that's hard to classify, but unmistakably wonderful. Called power pop, hippie rock, and college rock, it's genre bending, but lyrically and musically pleasing. The soft, cherubic voices of Ryan and Adam are so soothing that it's hard to pay attention to anything else when Guster's in your stereo. Songs like the farewell ballad "So Long" are so heart wrenching you feel Ryan's pain as he wrote each word in the lyrics. No to mention the radio ready hit "Barrel of a Gun." With songs like these in their repertoire, this trio is bound to be huge. Phish and Dave Matthews fans usually also flock to Guster. With a fanbase like that, they'll be selling out ampitheatres in no time.
