Product Description


With popcorn acoustic guitars, trampoline fiddles, bumper-car bass lines, and caramel-coated sax, the Dave Matthews Band's major-label debut is like an evening at the fair. "The Best of What's Around" and "What Would You Say" swirl like the amusement-park ride on the album's cover, sweeping the exhilarated and light-headed listener higher as the ride spins faster. "Satellite" glides breezily like the prettiest horse on the carousel, "Ants Marching" runs around hitting the bell with the sledgehammer and winning the largest stuffed animals at the target-range booths, and "Lover Lay Down" is the quietest moment on the disc--like the sun setting on a baby's sleeping, snow-cone-stained face collapsed on her daddy's shoulder. --Beth Massa

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Sooo good July 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
Well I'd like to first start by saying this is my first DMB album. I had difficulty choosing between this album and crash, but there both excellent choices, you can't go wrong. Anyway, this is an amazing. Every song is hypnotic and and just puts you in a trance you don't want to get of. My personal favorites are jimi thing, dancing nancies, and rhyme and reason. Trust me and everyone else who reviewed this album correctly, it's worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars La La La La , Hey, La La La La . Hey... April 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is probably the most fun Dave Matthews Band album. Most of the songs have a great sing along quality. The playing is loose and vibrant. Even the slower numbers have a melodic sway to them. I think the Amazon editorial review hit on the mood exactly. One can just picture the band onstage at a fair or carnival as children run around and adults listen, dance and sing. Then sitting in the grass listening to the last two tracks fade as the sun sets.... It's understandable why this album vaulted them to stardom. Most casual or non-Dave Matthews Band fans I know all agree this is a great CD. While they may not be crazy about later releases, "the songs on Crash are too long", "Before These Crowded Streets is too dark", "Everyday is too slick", etc, this release is always favorably received. If you are new to DMB, this is the best introduction. If you are a long time fan, this is probably never far from your player.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of DMB's Best... April 4 2004
By Troy
Format:Audio CD
On Dave Matthews Band's first RCA release, 'Under the Table and Dreaming', they introduce their listeners to a mellow, yet energetic musical genre of love, peace, and happiness within their lyrics and music. Dave Matthews lyrics are deep and profound, while his voice soars high above the clouds over head, as his acoustic guitar leads the group and requires all the other instruments to revolve around him. Stefan Lessard's bass guitar is like a faint angel stomping it's feet along to Dave's guitar riffs, with Carter Beauford providing hard hitting, syncopated drum arrangements, which make DMB all the more interesting to listen to. Leroi Moore's saxophone sounds will flutter through your ears like a baby crying in the faint distance, while Boyd Tinsley's violin swerves through the tunes and makes a great backing rythmic string section.
'Best Of What's Around'= Four stars
'What Would You Say'= Five stars
'Satelite'= Five stars
'Rhyme and Reason= Four stars
'Typical Situation'= Five stars
'Dancing Nancies'= Three stars
'Ants Marching'= Five stars
'Lover Lay Down'= Five stars
'Jimi Thing'= Four stars
'Warehouse'= Five stars
'Pay For What You Get'= Five stars
'#34'= Three stars
I reccomend this to people as a first DMB CD. It introduces you to their distinct sounding music, along with some of their more diverse musical genres. Five star all the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Under The Table And Dreaming March 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have often wondered why so many people hate the Dave Matthews Band. I have come up with two reasons:
1. They make money.
2. They write songs first and foremost, and for go all the other redundant things that come with being a rock star.
Because if you take even one listen to their records, there is so much good that you can't hate them.
That brings me to their major label debut(and one of the first CD's I ever purchased way back in '95), "Under the Table and Dreaming".
There is a definte inflation of the ratings, but this is really a five star record. From the first song to the end on track "#34", this is a great, just push play record with equal parts joy, sorrow and great musicianship.
The record gets off to a great start with "Best of What's Around", a joyous track that captures the DMB perfectly. Quiet acoustic riff with flawless drumming, a killer bass part and a great jam flow brought to you by Boyd and Leroy. When bands say they tried to get the live vibe in the studio, DMB are one of the few bands that can do it.
"Jimi Thing" rocks out more grooves in one song then many bands can come up with in their entire lives. "Typical Situations" is a non-conformist anthem, with a meloncollie verse with one of the most joyous chorus they have ever written(they later replicate this equally well on "Two Step" off of the equally good "Crash"). And the hit single "Ants Marching", origannely off of their debut "Remember Two Things", is as good as you remember.
So, if you are thinking about getting "Under the Table and Dreaming" for the first time, I would anticapate that you would like it. This is music that is better than genre. This is just great music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless March 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is as close to a perfect CD as you will find. The songs complement eachother so completely that the songs seem to almost blend into one melodious song with different acts. For me there is no best song on the album because none is capable of standing out from the rest. Instead, DMB brings you into their better world for an hour at a time, and we emerge somehow more ready to face the world having heard the beauty that the world is capable of.

4.0 out of 5 stars almost perfect Feb. 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Only the second album released by DMB, it's my 2nd runner-up for the category of "classic DMB album," with Crash winning out; still, it was a tough choice. On the whole, there are a greater # of good songs on this album than on Crash, but the few great songs on Crash (like "#41") are better than the best songs on UTTAD. So, this bumps Crash up a notch though UTTAD isn't far behind. You might dubb it pre-classic DMB. In any case, this album still honorably retains one foot in the grass roots mire, though during its release the music was well on its way to widespread mainstream recognition. Like Remember Two Things and Crash, it's essential for DMB-lovers and a mostly happy-go-lucky mood provides an uplifting listening experience, despite the occasional darker themes. And don't forget "#34" on hidden track 34.
