Product Description


It's tempting to label the Dave Matthews Band as torchbearers of the Grateful Dead's moderate rock fusion and send them off on the next summer tour featuring either Blues Traveler or the Spin Doctors. But there is more at work here, particularly on the band's second major-label release. Crash pairs soothing sounds (flute, acoustic guitar, six-string bass) with a dark emotional undercurrent. The South African (by way of Virginia) frontman reveals a rare intensity on the title track and the free-form "41", while the group shows that it's not afraid to let loose on songs such as the stirring "Too Much". Producer Steve Lillywhite adds an impressive sheen to the recordings. --Aidin Vaziri

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch April 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion, this is the best Dave Matthew Band Album. It has some of their best songs and most inspired playing. Many of the songs have become concert staples. Catchy hits such as So Much To Say, Too Much, Tripping Billies and the moster hit Crash are interspersed with musical gems like Two Step, #41, Lie In Our Graves, and a personal favorite, Say Goodbye. This is one of my desert island discs. The double shot of #41 and Say Goodbye is my favorite moment on any DMB album. It never ceases to affect me. Not a bad song on the whole disc.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok, ok April 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
i understand where all the one-star reviews are coming from; opinions that hate dave matthews band for putting out mindless drivel on lame subject matter. but i have to disagree. to me, crash is about feeling good, about relaxing to moving sound. not really about complexity in lyricism or songs that are necessarily 'about' something. i have no idea what #41 is about, but its one of the prettiest songs i've ever heard. and that song alone is worth the bucks, or at least a couple more stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the sweetest album I've heard... April 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
I don't have every DMB album I should. Crash is, in fact, my first. Don't get me wrong! I love The Dave Matthews Band, but I just could never get around to buying one of their albums.
That said, I decided to get this one because of three songs I'd heard from it: Two Step, Crash Into Me, and Too Much, which are the three best, in my opinion.
The Dave Matthews Band are probably the only band like themselves in today's world of glitz, glamour, and synthetic pop. Perhaps it's because they're true originals, or perhaps they're the best of an underground movement we haven't heard of yet, but whatever the case, I consider this their masterpiece.
I won't give a song-by-song rundown like so many others do in their reviews, but suffice it to say that every song is wonderfully written, has flawless musicianship, and Dave Matthews is just the right guy to lead this band. It wouldn't fit with anyone else.
I will highlight the songs I mentioned earlier.
Two Step: An energetic, subtly powerful song, and hands down, the loudest that DMB has ever been.
Crash Into Me: It's such a romantic song, even though I think it's about a kid's wet dream. It's so tender and real. It reminds me of the first girl I loved.
Too Much: The big hit single with those famous lyrics: "I Eat Too Much, I Drink Too Much, I Want Too Much, Too Much!" It has a cool, big band feel to it, especially during the chorus.
If you never buy another Dave Matthews Band album, buy this one. It's their Sgt. Pepper's - they can only go down from here!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Intriguing March 17 2004
By Katie
Format:Audio CD
Everyone always says that they are the biggest fan of their favorite band. I can honestly say that I might be one of the biggest DMB fanatics ever. This DMB album leaves no exceptions and, quite possibly, is my favorite.
I own every single DMB album - single, live, studio - in existence today, and I must say, none of them impacted me the way "Crash" did. It may also be because several of the songs on this album are very sentimental to me. The only DMB album that could be capable of even grazing Crash as the best would be Under the Table and Dreaming. While most people enjoy Before These Crowded Streets more than any of them, I think UTTAD has a rawness to it - it showed more of Dave to us, the listener.
Out of all of DMB's albums, I believe that Crash is the largest crowd pleaser. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. While most of the time crowd pleasers are somewhat looked down upon - not hated - by true hardcore fanatics, this is a big exception. Come to think of it, isn't EVERY DMB album?
All of the DMB haters out there call fans like me pseudo-intellectual, Starbucks drinking, college attending freaks. One, I'm not in college yet. And two, we just have different tastes, so get over it. Dave's voice does not sound like a dying cat, either. Atleast he's original and doesn't sound like everyone else. That's like saying Bob Dylan is a wannabe.
All right, enough about my personal feelings of DMB. Here's a list of the songs:
So Much to Say - A good song to laugh about. But watch the music video to get the full impact of the lyrics. It's a journey through Dave's mind.
Two Step - A good song to sit and listen to. It's very complex in the way that the instruments fit together, and is a musical showcase for every member of the band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful equilibrium March 12 2004

This, of course might not be DMB's most audacious material, but it is the one I enjoy the most. The band stands right in the middle of the jazzy musical proposal they offer, and commercial $implicity (lately in demand) . You can either listen to great tunes and sweet melodies or admire the arrangements and the versatility of their jams. Great lyrics too. I'd say this should be DMB's signature style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Follow Up March 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
Matching the musical genius achieved in Under the Table and Dreaming is no small task, but Crash, while not quite as good as Under the Table, is a great album. Almost every song is noteworthy, especially "Crash into Me" and "Proudest Monkey." THe lone bad song on the album is "Let You Down" which is just not catchy at all. Maybe if I needed to calm down on my deathbed it would be ok but otherwise it is just too slow and boring to fit in with this upbeat wondrous CD.
