Well, this CD didn't give that to me. I love pretty much every song on it, but dmb just doesnt sound like they used to. The songs are very short; it's mostly just Dave singing, theres hardly any instrumental break; and I really think they were trying to change their style. It sounds more pop than anything else. I still enjoy this CD, but if you want to get a real feel of what DMB is about, pick up Before These Crowded Streets, which was amazing. Also, all their live CDs are terrific.
Busted Stuff, the release after Everyday, shows that DMB is back to their old familiar ways. That was a great CD also.
I now fully appreciate 'Everyday.' The style is different from previous DMB albums and it took some adjustment. The musical prowess is still here, however; the DMB is a creative and artistic entity, not just an entertainment fad.
One of my least favorites on the album is the 'The Space Between' single. Not because it is a bad track - it just doesn't do much for me. 'Sleep to Dream Her' is a fabulous track, demonstrative of the musical talent of the group. I'm still trying to figure out what the time signature is.
'Everyday,' the title track, has a refreshing if subtle African influence.
If you celebrate the artistry of the DMB then definitely buy this album and give it time to grow on you. Then go out and buy 'Live in Central Park' if you don't already own it.
I liked Everyday the first time I listened to it. I couldn't wait to hear it again. Didn't matter that it didn't sound like anything they had done before, it was a great CD full of good, soulfull music.
So...I decided to check some reviews to see what others thought. Wow!!...from some of the reviews you would think that Dave Matthews himself personally went to these people's homes, beat up their sisters (or brothers), wrecked their new car, and kicked their dogs! What ever happened to appreciating music for what it is, not for what you, the listener, thinks it should be.
It was refreshing, however, to see all the good reviews from the rational thinking, music loving people of the world. After listening to Everyday I pulled my Under the Table CD and listened to it. I am anxious to expand my DMB collection again.
