Ok, I'll admit it. "Crushed" was playing in the background when I fell in love for the first time in my life. But I feel hardly biased when I contend that this CD by the Dave Matthews Band is one of the richest, most powerful compisitions I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Pick any track you like, because none really stand out, nor overshadow the others. It really just feels like a balanced stroke of genius, and a consistant recording.
From the joyous dynamics of "stay" to the angry sound of "halloween", to the eeiry power of "crushed", this album has it all. The recording quality is top notch, and listners will be rewarded for their close attention. I swear the more expensive the system, the better it gets! Inspiring music AND definitive mastering??? Spoiled I am!
It is hard not to love this group, but if your experiance with them is from radio stars like "ants marching" and "crash" - you truly haven't gotten the essence of the group yet.
Spin this disc, if you don't like it, send it to me. Mine will be worn out soon.
