I have both Lost and Gone Forever and Parachute on CD, and I've always been pretty happy with the quality of them. They have pretty much no background hiss, and the level seems to be boosted just enough so that there isn't any clipping. Instruments and voices are positioned precisely and they don't seem to get smeared. Does anyone else listen to Guster? What do you think of the quality of their releases? This is really more to satisfy my curiosity than anything. They're a lesser-known band and so I guess I expected less of them, but was pleasantly surprised. When most people think referece CDs they pull out Diana Krall or something and so I was wondering if I'm nuts or if there is something to their work (besides the quality of the music ).
