Product Description

Amazon.ca

With three years passed and a new producer at the helm, the Dave Matthews Band find themselves stretching beyond the borders of Before These Crowded Streets to more emotionally explorative territory. On Everyday Matthews's clenched-jaw delivery has an unrelenting constancy that's cunning and determined. "I Did It" opens the CD in an aggressive groove, while "When the World Ends" follows with clipped licks that dive into a muddier, open-flowing chorus. From there on out, the floodgates open into something that recalls Peter Gabriel, which is ironic given that the band replaced producer Steve Lillywhite--whose work with Gabriel is legendary--with Glen Ballard, whose work with Alanis Morissette is of equal note, if not acclaim. The album is Gabrielian in scope, from Matthews deepening rasp to the epic instrumentation. Yet, what's lacking is Lillywhite's ability to capture a sense of naked honesty. Instead, Ballard dosses down the tracks in designer-suit production, unable to save a band that might simply not be up to the task on such an ambitious sonic endeavor. That, combined with Matthews' tendency to eschew conventional hooks, leaves the album stalled between the group's jam-band compulsion and radio-appeasing packaging. To capture the latent majesty of this album, you're going to have to hear it live, and with this band, that's always been precisely the point. --Beth Massa

4.0 out of 5 stars Give it time May 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
In the past year I discovered the artistry of the Dave Matthews Band. In a torrent of music acquisition, I have acquired nearly all of their albums, none with disappointment. Upon my virgin listen of 'Everyday' I thought I had found the sour apple in the bunch. But there were a few tracks that called me back (namely, the ones performed at the spectacular 'Live in Central Park' concert) and I continued listening to 'Everyday.'
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everyone's a critic... May 5 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD the other day, not because of some review I read but just for the hell of it. I am a fan of DMB, not like some of the diehard, fanatics here on this site, but because I am a fan of good music. I have three DMB CD's in my collection and listen to a wide variety of stuff (Allman Brothers, B.B. King, Jimmy Thackery, Pretenders, Widespread Panic, Goo Goo Dolls, J Geils, Hendrix, AC/DC, Miles Davis, Jimmy Vaughn, Neil Young, Wes Montgomery, etc,etc,etc).
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A New Direction April 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
Let me first say that this is a great album. But like many long time Dave Matthews Band fans I was disappointed and left wanting after listening to it the first time. It reflects a change in musical direction for the band, due to the influence of producer Glen Ballard. For me, the appeal of previous Dave Matthews Albums, as well as their live shows, is that the songs are both a vehicle for the lyrics and a showcase for the band's great playing. I have always enjoyed the insturmental interludes in so many of their songs, especially the extended solos of Leroi Moore. I feel that the band is an afterthought on this disc, never rising to the spotlight, so to speak. Now that I've gotten that out of the way, the album is a great rock album. More along the lines of their singles from Under the Table and Crash, but a bit more complex and contemplative. Once I accepted it wasn't what I was expecting, and the more I listen to it, the more I enjoy it. Althought brief, the songs carry and emotional weight that last after the notes stop.

3.0 out of 5 stars Streaks of genius Jan. 31 2004
By phil
Format:Audio CD
I consider myself a pretty avid Dave fan. I have every album, have been to a few shows, and it occupies most of my CD player's time. Although many fans like me do not like this album, I still think that it's worth getting. Yes, it's true that the CD is filled with some really bland, poppy tracks such as "The Space Between", and "Angel", but there are some tracks that justify the album. "So Right" is high quality, on-par with some of his Before These Crowded Streets and Busted Stuff songs. "When the World Ends" is a great song to relax to, and "What You Are" has a great urgent riff that gets you into the song. Even "I Did It", though disgustingly poppy, is catchy.
All in all, I think that it is both worthy of adding to your collection of Dave CDs, or a great first one to buy if you are just getting into the band and looking for some of his most accessible music. If you are a "purist" Dave fan, however, don't expect to be impressed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Eh. Nov. 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
The first DMB song I ever heard was "The Space Between," which I instantly fell in love with. Yes, I know, all the hardcore fans are going to jump all over me for that...but it really is a good song. That's why, as soon as I could, I went out and bought this CD, which has the song on it, simply because that's what I do. I was instantly disappointed by most of the tracks I heard, and so turned to ever-faithful Amazon.com to see what other people had thought of it. I took one person's suggestion to listen to some of the older songs, like Crush, and comparing the two now, I really find this album very lacking in whatever it was the others had. Its few redeeming tracks (mainly Space Between and So Right) were simply not enough to make up for the others, especially considering the excellence of other songs and albums by DMB. I really would not recommend anyone to buy this; if anything, buy "The Space Between" online, from something like Apple's Itunes Music Store, because that song at least is worth the money paid for it.

I have been in love with DMB for a while now. I love how their songs are usually half instrumentals and 8 minutes long but never get boring or dull. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best DMB, but still...
This album is definitely the low point in the DMB discography. It strays so far from the mainstream that sometimes it is a little jarring and awkward. Read more
