They went back into the studio and recorded a second album, 1998's Goldfly, which helped them earn the attention of Sire Records who re-released the album.

After recording a live album and DVD (Guster On Ice), they returned to the studio to work on their fifth album, Ganging Up On The Sun, which was released in 2006. The album was startling compared to earlier Guster releases, with hints of psychedelic rock and stark moody shading formerly unheard from a band which started as a three-piece acoustic group.
