Product Description

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

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!

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.

Dmb's Crash is a great cd, i cant decide if i like under the table and dreaming or this more. Crash spawned 4 hits, three of them huge To Ten hits. Tim Reynolds adds some of his excellent electric guitars on this album (UTTAD didnt have a single electric guitar on the whole album.)Much of Crash was recorded live in the studio. Also, I must praise Steve Lillywhite for his always excellent production.
So Much to Say (10/10)great catchy song, big hit, very good baritone sax from Roi.Carter is a great backing vocalist.
Two Step (10/10) Great tune, one of the best on here. Great plucking from Boyd, some of Dave's best lyrics ("Celebrate we will, cause if short but sweet for certain.")
Crash into Me (8/10)One of their biggest hits, soft song that is NOT a love song-look carefully at the lyrics. Nice guitar from Dave.
Too Much (7/10)OK song, kind of annoying, huge hit, more baritone from Roi. This song is about greed.Love that beggining riff(sounds kinda TRipping Billies though!)
41-(11/10)great emotional tune, some of Dave's all time best vocals, great solos from Roi and Boyd.
Say Goodbye (8/10)good song, the best part is the end when it gets all dramatic.
Drive In Drive Out(9/10)-this song will grow on you, the chourus is insanely catchy.
Let You Down (9/10) nice quiet ballad, Roi can whistle, man!
Lie in Our Graves(10/10)-great upbeat song about living live to the fullest, ping-pong anyone?(listen close)
Cry Freedom (3/10)ahh i hate this tune good messsage though.
Tripping Billies (12/10) probaly my all time favorite dmb tune, love that "Eat drink and be Merry for tommorow we die" line.
Proudest Monkey (8/10) nice jam, nine minutes, kinda meanders, especially at the end. Solid song.
BUY CRASH AND UTTAD AND BTCS AND BS! their great check out live stuff to and everyday.
