I purchased "Starting Now" because I just bought tickets to see Toad live next month, and I realized I didn't have their latest release yet. I've only had the chance to listen to the CD once, but I love it already. So far my favorite tracks are "Game Day" and "Dual Citizen," but the whole album has that sweet, lush, soul-uplifting, instantly recognizable Toad sound. Thank you so much, and please keep sharing your gifts with the world!

I'd been streaming some of these songs so often I decided I needed my own copy to listen to every day, and now I love playing the album all the way through. My favourites are Fever and Dual Citizen but the whole album is fantastic. So much thought and talent went into every word and musical note here. Toad just keeps getting better with time!

Great CD, worth the purchase. Its best songs (Fever, Lantern Light, Dual Citizen) are just phenomenal. There's nobody out there who makes music like Toad. They're one of the most underrated bands in the history of rock music, and they're definitely my favorite.

Very enjoyable CD! Great new material with some fresh ideas, yet still reminiscent of the wonderful TOAD albums of the past. Highly recommend adding this CD to anyone's music collection! Many thanks to Toad the Wet Sprocket for creating the album "Starting now"!

The most mature TTWS record to date. The playlist hums with tunes ranging from personal experiences such as loss and love to the longing of things to come. Nearly perfect.

This is quintessential toad and yet it doesn't feel like the other albums. It's more reminiscent of the b-side/mailing list releases. Dual citizen is something else! I can't think other toad songs with that kind of sound. My 7 year old asked me who the singer was when I was listening to it so I'd say something struck him about it.

As usual, this is instantly a Toad classic! “Starting Now “ is just a perfect song! I loved the live stream show!! Please ask your merchandise people to get more 2X tee shirts! God bless you all! Gratefully, James

Typical Toad, lively performances and a good mixture of song styles. Really enjoyable.

More great music from a great band! It was cool to hear Glen play a lot of these tracks in his live streams over the last year or so. Great to hear the band's versions on the album, and also to hear several songs live a couple weeks ago at The Birchmere!

CD is amazing from front to back. Always wonderful music from Toad the Wet Sprocket.

The music is great! I knew that "New Constellation" was going to be a tough act to follow though. While I'm sure that "Starting Now" will continue to grow on me even more as I listen more, NS is still one of the most amazing, complete albums ever, IMHO. Still, it's awesome to have new music from the guys. Still the same Toad sound. "Game Day" is my initial favorite. Best wishes to Randy Guss as he moves on in life. To the rest of the guys, keep making more awesome music! One disappointing thing to me was the shipping time. I ordered weeks before the album's release and did not receive it until almost 6 weeks after the release date. SHAME ON the marketing company!

Been a TOAD fan since 1992 and the Starting Now album is among their best. First, I just saw them in concert at the Kessler Theatre in Dallas and as always, was blown away. My favorite tunes on this new album are: Game Day for its uplifting and inspirational vibe; Transient Whales because hey, we all have those periods where we just lumber along just living and existing; Dual Citizen as it reminds me of a 007 movie - like a super cool spy track; and Fever because of its relevance to the climate change happening now, very moving. All in all, just another brilliant album by my favorite artists. Glen is a poet in every sense of the word and the musicianship of the band never ceases to amaze. Well done, gentlemen, well done!

I am always glad to get any new Toad or Glen Phillips music. The new album 'Starting Now' is especially welcome after the year we just went through. With a new drummer, I didn't know exactly what to expect but any fears were laid to rest upon the first listen. Definitely different but familiar. Another smart album. The songs convey a new confidence that I appreciate. With the world changing so fast it's nice to have something from our past that we can hold on to and carry forward. Good job guys.
