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!
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.Read more ›
