DAVE MATTHEWS BAND Everyday (2001 UK issue 12-track CD album including the singles I Did It The Space Between & Everyday presented in card picture slipcase with fold-out sleeve)
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

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.
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.

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 morePublished on July 16 2004
My favorite album is CRASH but this one has many killer tunes.
"So Right" and "Mother Father" (w/ Carlos Santana) just blew me away. Read more
DMB tried to do something new, and it failed. They just tried to rush out this album after the Lillywhite Sessions was leaked, but not released. Read morePublished on May 15 2004 by J. Schouten
