8/10 Andrew Creamer (November 27, 2006)
Die-hard Deadheads often scoff at The Dead\'s studio efforts, maintaining that they were always better at being a live band (I agree). Still, American Beauty is easily one of their best and most accessible recorded albums, filled with many fine and pretty songs.

If you know this album you can review it.
