Product Description


Dave Matthews doesn't exactly seem thrilled about this release. But how would you feel if you made an album with a producer you didn't like, dumped it, and then woke up one morning to find it leaked on the Internet and available at every bootleg stall in New York City? That's pretty much what happened with "The Lillywhite Sessions," the unreleased, darker predecessor to the blockbuster Everyday album. Rather than turn their back on the fans, however, Matthews and company returned to the studio to do the job right. On Busted Stuff, they revive those solemn songs with diligent intensity, creating lovely swaths of melancholy and transcendence. Elegant tracks like "Grace Is Gone" and "Digging a Ditch" replace the dreary gloss of the last album with dazzling intimacy, and even the band's usual tendency for meandering jazz-rock flights is kept in check by the sheer weight of the material. Impressive stuff, in spite of what Matthews apparently thinks. --Aidin Vaziri

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite DMB studio album Aug. 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is my favorite DMB studio album, but it should be noted that the DMB live albums are of better quality than the studio ones. Particular favorites on this album are Grey Street, Where Are You Going, Raven, Grace Is Gone, Big Eyed Fish. Bartender is a listless song in its debut here, made much better in later (live) albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars grace is gone May 13 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
yeah this is a wicked awesome cd, but the song grace is gone is about God's Grace, not a person named Grace. If you like this, you should download the uncut version, the Lillywhite Sessions. Its basically all the songs before theyve been buffered and re-edited.

3.0 out of 5 stars Half and Half April 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am hesitant to write a review of this album as I still don't have a firm opinion after almost two years of listening to it. Perhaps it's because I want to like it as much as I have liked all the other Dave Matthews Band albums. Off the top of my head I feel it is a mixed bag. There are some very good songs here. Grey Street, Where Are You Going, Raven, Grace is Gone and Bartender are of note. The rest just seem flat and uninspired. It is still much better than 95% of the stuff that is sold in record stores these days, so if you are thinking of buying it, do so. Just don't expect the quality of the other records in the DMB catalogue.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst album March 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
To think, this band could have ruled the world. And yet, here we are, churning out pale retreads of former glories. Stick with "Crash" and buy nothing else. If you really need to hear this, some flannel-wearing college student might loan it to you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dave Matthews Band on Auto Pilot March 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
This record is best summed up as Dave Matthews Band on autopilot. Not thats a bad thing, but you have just come to expect a little more from the DMB.
I was one of those supporters of "Everyday", as long as it was a one time only type of album. So when I heard that DMB was going to release the widely bootlegged "The Lilywhite Sessions", which in its raw format is better than this version, I was really happy. But something went wrong on the way back to the studio.
The raw emotions are all gone, and sadly missed, and some of the playing is actually lesser than on its Internet companion.
Thats not to say that this is a bad record. One of the new songs, "Where Are You Going?", is an excellent addition, even though "You Never Know" is a lazy song that could ahve easily been left off. Also, both "Gray Street" and "Busted Stuff" would fit in easily with "Under the Table" and "Crash".
The main problem with this I guess is two things:
1. I heard the Lilywhite sessions first.
2. There seems to be a begrudging vibe to all the songs, like "Alright, we'll release this, I guess".
If you are new to DMB, then you should probably get one of the earlier records. If you are a DMB fan, like myself, then yo should LIKE this record, if not LOVE it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Grey Street and nothing March 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
Busted Stuff is boring and unmotivated. It was rushed into release because the Lillywihte Sessions (the songs on this album) were released onto the internet and DMB wanted to profit from them. The result is a lot of bad songs with the the lone bright spot being Grey Street, a spectacular song that belongs on another better album. After two great albums, Busted Sutff marks the second of three straight disappointing albums. The ambivalent sounds that made DMB so famous seem to be replaced by disjointed background sounds that make me nervous not relaxed. Don't waste your money on this album: get Some Devil and the bonus disc has a great live version of Grey Street, as well as the hard to find Seek Up.
