The Grateful Dead: Anthem of the Sun (Warner Bros.)
uncredited writer, Disc and Music Echo, 12 October 1968
EVERYONE'S BEEN talking for so long about the GRATEFUL DEAD and at last, having heard Anthem Of The Sun (Warner Bros.) we know why — AND HOW! It's so completely unlike anything you ever heard before that it's practically a new concept in music. It's haunting, it's pretty, it's infinite — and then zap and it's explosive and a complete mind-blower. It's continuous, with no bands between tracks. More a movement, even hymn — yes, anthem if you like.
