The magic of Tusk is in the interaction of the group, in the performances and in the feel, and especially in the psychic communication that goes on among them. —Washington Post

In 2004, Warner reissued Tusk as a 2-CD set with remastered sound and bonus material consisting of demos, roughs, and outtakes.
