4.0 excellentBritch2tiger | June 5th 18

Maybe I just have a deep indifference toward "catchiness" when it comes to music... This album is a tad less repetitive, lyrically speaking, and reveals more of their jam rock potential, esp in the second half of the record. Personally not as well blended as I Mother Earth's Scenery & Fish album, but this record comes off as a close second.

From a band with influences from 70s and 90s, Bang Bang sounds like a very awesome Jam Rock album. A lot of influences are heard, reggae, dub, funk, etc. This is probably my favorite underground release, that is if we consider Dispatch underground.

3.5 greatCrazyFool84 | November 10th 08

I was glad I found this (through the site). I'm a big fan of jam bands and music from the 90's and this has everything rolled into one. Excellent musicianship, an eclectic mix of styles, and an overall fun approach/listen make this worthy of it's status as Sputniks #2 album for 2000.

5.0 classicMonorailCat | August 10th 08

This album's catchiness is amazing. Dispatch has released an album in which everything is perfect. The blend of many styles pulls this album together to create the best jam rock album I have heard to this date. Everything on this album is mixed well, and nothing is inaudible. If you would like to get into Dispatch, get this masterpiece. The groove of the guitar on this album is incredible, and will get anybody hooked.

5.0 classicdub sean | May 18th 07

Bang Bang was Dispatch's best collaboration of rock, folk, reggae, and jam. The album ranges from fast, catchy songs like Bats in the Belfry and Railways to the slower, mellow tunes such as the title track, Bang Bang, and Two Coins. The General, a classic song which made the band popular is the key to this album's success. The album flows so well, and finishes strong with Outloud. Bang Bang highlights the three members' different talents on their respective instruments and will not fail to amaze all who listen.
