Editorial Review

Dave Matthews doesn't exactly seem thrilled about this release. But how would you feel if you made an album with a producer you didn't like, dumped it, and then woke up one morning to find it leaked on the Internet and available at every bootleg stall in New York City? That's pretty much what happened with "The Lillywhite Sessions," the unreleased, darker predecessor to the blockbuster Everyday album. Rather than turn their back on the fans, however, Matthews and company returned to the studio to do the job right. On Busted Stuff, they revive those solemn songs with diligent intensity, creating lovely swaths of melancholy and transcendence. Elegant tracks like "Grace Is Gone" and "Digging a Ditch" replace the dreary gloss of the last album with dazzling intimacy, and even the band's usual tendency for meandering jazz-rock flights is kept in check by the sheer weight of the material. Impressive stuff, in spite of what Matthews apparently thinks. --Aidin Vaziri ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great album
I like this album a lot. Most of the songs here are great.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Brilliant Collection
"Busted Stuff" by the Dave Matthews Band is only busting one thing, critic's reviews. The bands latest studio album is a great assortment of tunes from one of the greatest jam bands in the world. As usual Dave does not disappoint his fans, he has songs that will quench any DMB fans thirst. If love songs are your thing then "Where Are You Going" is your song. "Where Are You Going" is also apart of the movie soundtrack "Mr. Deeds". If your looking for a more up-tempo and uplifting song then "Bartender", "You Never Know", and "Grey Street" are for you. He even throws a beautiful instrumental song in mix "Kit Kat Jam". My personal favorites would include "Grey Street", "Grace is Gone" and "Big Eyed Fish". "Grace is Gone" is about losing the love of your life and drowning your sorrows in alcohol, "One more drink, could you make it strong cause I, don't need to think she.... Broke my heart my grace is gone. One more drink and I'll be gone". The only negative thing I can think of with this song is that the steel guitar (used for the intro) isn't utilized at all for the rest of the song. "Big Eyed Fish" is a very odd even depressing song. The song cites many situations where animal and human dream to be what they cannot become. This is a glass half-empty song as indicated by the following line "Oh God under the weight of life things seem so much better on the other side". Give this album a try I guarantee that it will have you taping your toes and singing along. The Dave Matthews Band is the greatest jam band in the world. If you are looking for a comparison, the closest to come is Phish (now retired). Dave Matthews is a lyrical and musical genius, he inspires me and many others around the world.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thank you Dave Matthews Band
I was so happy to hear this album after hearingEverday! Dave is Back.This album is back to the more instrumental and upbeat songs wich we saw on albums like Crash and Before these crowded streets.Unlike Everyday it is much more naked or raw and does not seem like it was produced for the mainstream radio music.Overall this album is really worth buying if you are a diehard (like myself) or a first time listener. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Classic
Having stumbled across DMB a few years ago, I have since become their biggest fan in Scotland, however as the band have yet to make their Scottish debut it isn't often that I get the opportunity to listen to live performances.
The second CD on this album is a must for all DMB fans who enjoy the different jam sounds of the band playing live - especially Satelite - an unbelievable version which I have been playing over and over again for the past nine months.
If you don't already have this albumBUY IT NOW!

1-0 out of 5 stars If you have money to burn...
I love the DMB but this just wasn't worth the money. Don't get me wrong I love their music and I suppose I wanted to "collect them all" but this changed my mind about that idea. I'm actually upset that saved up for this. Forget about this import and just save your money for the next album.

4-0 out of 5 stars everyday + 5live is a good combo
I purchased this CD just for the 5 live CD that came with it. I had already bought the Everday CD when it first came out.I was very pleased to find out once i got the 5 live CD that 4 of the 5 live tracks are from the 7-7-01 show in Chicago! This was awesome because i was at that show. The only live track that isn't from Chicago is "I did it", i don't know where they got that one. So i if you're like me and you love the live versions of DMB's songs, then buy this album, ... Read more

Editorial Review

Unplugged and set apart from his bandmates, Dave Matthews is transformed from a fusion rocker to something of a fusion folkie. Indeed, this two-disc, two-man concert recording (cut in Iowa in the winter of 1996 and shelved for nearly three years) posits the South African-born bandleader less as a Blues Traveler fellow traveler than a dexterous, jazz-inflected minstrel in the tradition of Tim and Jeff Buckley, Terry Callier, and Ellen McIlwaine. As with those considerably less-successful performers, multiplatinum Matthews is enticed to soar ever higher by his considerable vocal prowess. Ultimately, Matthews takes his tunes in dizzying directions because he can! All those exhibitions of elasticity have earned Matthews disdain in less-is-more circles. Here, however, more than ably complemented by frequent DMB guest and fellow Charlottesville, Virginia, denizen Tim Reynolds, Matthews virtually bursts through 23 tunes that leave his audience wanting more. They needn't worry: even his worst critics wouldn't accuse Matthews of being stingy when it comes to music. --Steven Stolder ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get much better than this
As if this record actually needed any kind of review, I'm just saying that this record is absolutely marvelous. The only reason why this double album gets 4 stars instead of 5 stars is two songs that I do not enjoy as fully as the others. I would actually rate it as a 4.5 stars.

Tim Reynolds and Dave Matthews merge into one being on this album, communicating to such an extent that I would not be scared to compare it with such associations as Coltrane/Cannonball, Parker/Gillespie and more recently DiMeola/McLaughlin/DeLucia or Lagrene/Luc.

Great songs, very surprising sound for a live recording and everything just clicks.

5-0 out of 5 stars Classic
A must have for any DMB fan.Songs are transformed into a new style that many casual fans are not accustomed to.Dave and Time bring out some "one time" material and improv.A must have for any fan or apperciator of great musicical talent.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dave Matthews at his best
Without a doubt one of the BEST complete live Dave Matthews CD sets that you can buy. If you like Dave, or enjoy some of his other CD's and you haven't bought this one you a missing out. ... Read more

Editorial Review

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 lightheaded 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 The Music That Made Me Fall In Love With DMB
"Under The Table And Dreaming" reflects the true talent and honest emotion of DMB without the underproduction of "Remember Two Things" nor the darkness of "Before These Crowded Streets". From the carpe diem kick-off, "Best of What's Around" to the hoe-down hit, "Ants Marching", to the angry battle with the drug-addicted self, "Rhyme or Reason", this album covers it all-- and covers it well. Just be sure to look up the lyrics if you don't already know them; they are too brilliant to be missed, but are unfortunately nearly impossible to understand due to an imbalance between vocals and instrumentation in the album's production, not to mention Dave's infamous twang.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music, the best of DMB
Dave Matthews Band came at a time in the 90's when the radio waves were getting polluted with bubblegum pop and three chord boring rock. Something fresh was much needed to keep music lovers like myself happy. While watching MTV one day, I saw the video to the song "What Would You Say" and thought it was the most innovative and complex song MTV had played since the 80's. Finding out by the VJ that it was on the album "Under the Table and Dreaming", I picked up the CD just for that song. Wow, it has been one of the best CD purchases I have ever made, and is definitely the greatest CD I bought in the 90's.

The CD starts with the good feeling "The Best of Whats Around". After listening to this song, you'll have a huge smile on your face. It's not cheesy, just a song that makes you feel good inside. There are many, many MANY great stops along the way. "Satellite" is a good song for mediation and reflection, a song that makes you thing about the deeper issues in life. I alwys love listening to it when I'm in a contemplative mood. "Jimi Thing" has a little bit of a harder edge to it than the other songs, but it is a rocking number that makes you want to sing. "Ants Marching", the song that features the line "under the table and dreaming" in it, is a very polished soft rock song that tells a story and makes you feel like your back to the days where you would get under the table and dream with your friends. It is my second favorite song next to "What Would you Say". This upbeat song with it's slick production and instrument arrangements is complex, yet simple at the same time.

The other songs on the album are just as great. The "hidden song" (#34) is an instrumental piece were the band can show off their jazz roots and musical ability. Infused with rock, pop, jazz, and soul, this album has it all. It was the most original album I had since the 80's. DMB went on to release many other successful CD's such as "Crash" and "Before these Crowded Streets". The other CD's are great, but still don't hold a candle to this one. This is the ULTIMATE DMB CD. It has it all.

5-0 out of 5 stars Oh look at all these people with Dave on their minds
You know it's quite baffling to me that so many people have so much time on their hands to write about how much they hate Dave Matthews and Dave Matthews Band. Unoriginal? Ha ha. If it weren't for Dave Matthews there would be an awful lot of current musicians (Mraz, Mead, Gray, Meyer, Day) that would still be standing in front of the mirror wondering if this whole acoustic-guitar-in-a-band thing would possibly not get me shot.
Like 'em or leave 'em one thing is for sure based on the reviews in this article, the man sure is on your minds. I would imagine by most of the "is this helpful" ratings that the majority of people do not see through the DMB as one reviewer so eloquently put it, but rather see through the childish reviewers and their obvious jealousy of a band that totally enjoys playing together 15+ years later. At the end of the day if you're enjoying what you are doing with your life...is that wrong?
This is the first BMG record the band recorded and it has certainly withstood the test of time. It is not my favourite DMB studio albun, Before These Crowded Streets holds that honour, but it is certainly worth having in your collection if you are a DMB fan.
To the reviewer that was on a drive with a fan that kept skipping to the next song - this is perfectly normal behaviour. In the case if DMB who have well over 100 songs in their catalogue it is normal to think ahead. When you drive by yourself you are more likely to listen to the track at hand, when you have someone else you want them to hear as much as possible in the shortest time. Don't get carried away geezer just because you are still playing that one song you wrote that will never be popular.
DMb are a good studio band but they are even more enjoyable live. Throughout the last 6 years since the first time I saw them I have made so many great new friends and been to places I otherwise would never have visited, most recently San Francisco. The band brings much more than just music to people's lives and this page of reviews is obviously a load of tripe from a bunch of insanely jealous people.
Eat, drink and be merry. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Chris Whitley's Rocket House marks another shift for the man whose debut, Living with the Law, was a burst of Tom Petty-esque roots-rock. Since then, Whitley's oeuvre has become an increasingly eclectic--some would say unfocused--collection, one that reached its nadir with the grunge-flavored Din of Ecstasy in 1995. But in recent years, Whitley's been trusting his instincts, taking a more somber, minimalist road most poignantly captured on the Billy Martin-Chris Wood (of Medeski Martin & Wood fame) collaboration, Perfect Day.

Whitley's House, however, is in another time and place entirely. Filled with whispering effects and looped guitars, dense songs, and an accessible, modern-rock slant, it's the work of a mature, smart songsmith who's discovered how to get the most out of his poet's eye for the human condition, while going for broke in embracing musical possibilities. Kicking off with "To Joy (Revolution of the Innocents)," the sea change is immediately obvious, as a strange little warble gives way to a burst of serpentine electronics and a sly chorus Dave Matthews could be proud of (indeed, the record is released on Matthews's label, ATO Records). Have a listen to the wide-open pop on songs like "Say Goodbye," and "Vertical Desert," the latter finding Whitley's rootsy voice singing over a subdued mechanical beat and fat washes of keyboard. Despite the record's occasional overreach, it's worth it to hear Whitley flex his creative muscles and come up with something so immediate, hovering on the edge of experimental while remaining absolutely, overtly listenable. --Matthew Cooke ...

5-0 out of 5 stars His best
This is my favorite Whitley CD (yes, it's better than Living With the Law).It is my "one-cd-I-would-take-if-stranded-on-a-desert-island" choice.There are other albums by other artists that are as good, but this is the one I would want if forced to make a choice.It is extremely intense.I honestly don't understand why people compare it to Dave Matthews (even though, yes, he sings on one song).It sounds like nothing I've ever heard of Matthews.The CD probably won't make you smile with happiness.Instead, you'll be wrapped in its mood.Just a solid, solid piece of work.

5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite recent purchase.
This is one of the best, I don't know if anything can be as good as Livin With the Law, but... Chris sounds better than ever, another creative zenith that has been achieved.

Editorial Review

Organized and aired within days of the September 11 attacks, the fundraising telethon documented here was as remarkable for its subdued sincerity as for its unity of purpose. This double-disc anthology presents the diverse musical content of the broadcast in the order it was aired, with Bruce Springsteen's "My City of Ruins" setting the appropriately somber and introspective tone. And while artists such as Stevie Wonder (with assistance from Take 6 on "Love's in Need of Love") and U2 rise to the occasion with the spiritually uplifting grace expected of them, there are a few surprises here as well. Limp Bizkit and Goo Goo Doll John Rzeznick turn in a spare, if seemingly unlikely, cover of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here," appended with a new verse that asks what may be the 21st century's most compelling question: "Do you think we can change?" Even the viewpoint of John Lennon's anthem "Imagine" (as rendered by Neil Young) is occasionally altered to the first person, tellingly turning the song's idealism into a personal challenge. It's a rare event that can credibly sandwich Wyclef Jean's "Redemption Song," Mariah Carey's "Hero," and a chillingly somber take of "Livin' on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi, before offering up the subtly ironic benediction of Willie Nelson's "America the Beautiful." In the midst of its most trying time in a half century (arguably musically, as well as socially), America the sleeping giant awoke--and first listened to its heart. All net proceeds benefit the United Way's September 11th Telethon Fund. --Jerry McCulley ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Unified Set, Uniformly Excellent
When Bruce Springsteen starts this CD, "There's a blood red circle on the cold dark ground & the rain is falling down, the church door's thrown open; I can hear the organ's song, but the congregation's gone," we know we are in for a rare musical moment.His song builds softly with a soul stirring inner strength.When the choir joins him, "Come on, rise up," it sends chills down the spine.Stevie Wonder with Take 6 do such a marvelous job with "Love's In Need of Love Today."U2 do a great live version of "Walk On" from their "All That You Can't Leave Behind" CD.It's particularly touching as Bono says, "Hello from London," knowing that their were many British citizens who died with the Americans in the World Trade Towers on September 11."The darkness will be gone; the weak shall be strong; hold on to your faith," the choir sings behind Faith Hill on the excellent "There Will Come A Day."Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down" touches emotions of anger many Americans felt in the wake of the tragedy.Neil Young's "Imagine" is so close to John Lennon's arrangement; but it is one that magically lifts our emotions.This is one of my favorite tracks on the CD."Someday We'll All Be Free" was my introduction to Alicia Keys.When I heard her sing Donny Hathaway's marvelous song, goosebumps ran up my arm.When she sings, "Hang on to your womanly pride," it touches a chord for all of the women who fell in the tragedy that day.Limp Bizkit's acoustic offering of "Wish You Were Here" builds strongly, "So you think you can tell heaven from hell." Billy Joel's "New York State of Mind" with his jazz-inflected piano is a fitting torch tribute that concludes the first CD.The Dixie Chicks' "I Believe In Love" soars beautifully, "Today I got the answer and there's a world of truth behind it; love is out there waiting somewhere, you just have to go & find it."Dave Matthews' "Everyday" is a great acoustic ballad, "Jump in the mud of love, get yourself filthy."Bob Marley's reggae "Redemption Song" is given a strong treatment by Wyclef Jean, "New York City won't you help me sing these songs of freedom?"Bon Jovi's "Livin' On A Prayer" has a great catchy chorus.Sheryl Crow is positively haunting on "Safe & Sound," "Could you not be sad, could you not break down, after all I won't let go until you're safe & sound."Sting offers "Fragile" which appeared on his "Nothing Like the Sun" CD.Eddie Vedder's "Long Road" has some glorious guitar.The CD concludes with Paul Simon's "Brige Over Troubled Water," and Celine Dion and Willie Nelson.If you just listen to the music, this is an incredibly unified package that holds up as a listening experience as we move farther from that tragic day.If you did not get this soon after the event, don't miss out on this great music!Enjoy!

5-0 out of 5 stars So many emotions, and some minor quibbles....
Like many other citizens of the U.S., I sat and watched this 'Telethon' when it was aired shortly after September 11.As another reviewer says above, I am very cynical of the 'Hollywood Elite' and many in the entertainment industry.Many of those folks will take our dollars on one hand, and then tell us how bad we are for the world on the other.Not an attitude I share or condone.

The folks that appeared during this telethon spoke mostly from the heart, with little or no scripting of their comments and words.

I appreciate the generous thoughts behind this event, and what the event meant at the time of it's airing.

For the most part, this event was an opportunity to provide low key celebration of being an American, and for those in New York that were so deeply affected, what it meant to be a New Yorker(such as Billy Joel's performance of "New York State of Mind").

In both this event, and especially with the 'Concert for New York',I felt a little disappointed that it seemed that the people that were affected and impacted in the Washington, DC/Arlington, VA area (at the Pentagon) were overlooked to a large extent, and of course there was little attention to the folks on the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania with real American Heros aboard.

That doesn't diminish from the impact of this collection though.

Another reviewer mentions the opening with Bruce Springsteen's ballad "My City of Ruin," which set the stage for most everything that followed.

The performances of these songs, without live audiences, but also free of the studio and the heavy editing/mixing and tweaking that occurs there, are powerful and inspirational.

This *isn't* Toby Keith and his anthem "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue" (which followed later). It's a collection of songs that will remind you of this great nation, and the spirit of being an American.

A special salute to Celine Dion, who I'd not normally call myself a dedicated fan of (her music was of course done to the point of over popularity in the pop radio arena).Her rendition of "God Bless America" is awe-inspiring and powerful.Beautifully done.

Some of the other highlights include Faith Hill's "There Will Come A Day," Enrique Iglesias' "Hero," and of course, Paul Simon's "Bridge of Troubled Water."

My one minor quibble with this collection is the packaging that has been used in many cases.The CD case for this collection uses a very flimsy and tricky 2 CD holder in the single CD case space.Not the typical flip space, but one that uses a single plastic point to hinge on.I'm sure that this hinge will wear out quickly, and it definitely doesn't like to stay in place inside the case.

My rating for the music: 5 stars.For the packaging: 0 stars.

3-0 out of 5 stars One Outstanding track
I remember the night this concert was broadcast very vividly. It was just a few days after the attack on the WTC, and most of the country probably felt like me- in shock. Watching this concert the night it was held, I wondered where the song choices came from. They did tell alot about the feeling and understanding of the singers.

Some of it was just pap, like the "let's all be friends" and "all we need is peace and love" offerings from Stevie Wonder and Neil Young. Some were traditonal you-can't-go-wrong anthems, like the offerings of Celine and Willie. Some were wistful (Billy Joel), some trite (Mariah Carey, Bon Jovi), some almost defeatist sounding, some pointless, and and some were downright trite.

But the one that really affected me was Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down". Watching it, you knew where Tom stood. ... Read more

Editorial Review

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 ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatness
If you're a longtime DMB fan, you shouldn't have to look at other people's reviews.You know that you have unique favorites and some songs don't appeal at first to beginners.This review is for those who are new to DMB:

1. So Much To Say - 7/10 - Welcoming guitar rythm, catchybeat.I recommend downloading it for beginners.

2. Two Step - 10/10 - Incredible. The intro sets up the song beautifully for the famous "Celebrate we will" chorus.Many fans' all-time favorite song.

3. Crash Into Me - 8/10 - You've probably heard it. Radio friendly song.

4. Too Much - 7/10 - Jazzy uptempo song. Another good one.

5. #41 - 9/10 - One of my favorites along with Two Step.So smooth, so good.

6. Say Goodbye - 7/10 - Not for beginners. Although it is undoubtly a great song, it takes time to appreciate it.

7. Drive In Drive Out - 6/10 - For beginners. It will appeal for the first listen, but after a while it falls down the ranks as others move up. But there isn't a poor song on this cd anyways.

8. Let You Down - 6/10 - Not one of their most well acclaimed songs. Skip it.

9. Lie In Our Graves - 9/10 - I love it. Loved by everyone I know. Highly recommended. You can't go wrong.

10. Cry Freedom - 7/10 - Not great, but not bad.If you're a new fan, stick to other songs.

11. Tripping Billies - 9/10 - Another great song.Upbeat, and loved by everyone.

12. Proudest Monkey - 8/10 - A long mellow song. Not bad though.

In conclusion, this albums is a good place to start.So Much To Say, Two Step, Crash, Too Much, #41, Lie In Our Graves, and Trippin Billies are songs that should be listened to first.

Editorial Review

Soulive are proof that jazz remains a living organism that continually evolves from its past to make music for the present. Now a quartet with their addition of a saxophonist, Soulive brew a seamless funky concoction of '60s jazz-organ grooves, '70s funk, '90s acid-jazz, and fresh hip-hop that defies classification. The basic vibe of the music mirrors the great organ-guitar-sax era of the '60s, and these twentysomething musicians capture the nightclub feel of that time on "Tuesday Night's Squad" and the stirring ballad "Alkime." Dance-music fans will dig tracks that feature hip-hoppers Black Thought (from the Roots) and Talib Kweli. And for those who need their '70s groove on, they quote Earth Wind & Fire directly on "Flurries" and pay homage to the Brecker Brothers' highly syncopated style on "Whatever It Is." Dave Matthews, who Soulive opened for on a long tour of sold-out rock venues, returns the favor here on "Joyful Girl," but he is by far the least interesting aspect of this 13-song set. As their album title suggests, in jazz, Soulive is what's next. --Mark Ruffin ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Jam-meets-jazz on the city streets
A few bars into "Tuesday Night's Squad" on Soulive's Next-their fourth album, and the follow-up to their Bluenote debut Doin' Something-it may seem to anyone even remotely familiar with this organ-based trio's raw "soul-groove jazz" style that they've wandered into the wrong party.The free-wheeling swirl of Neal Evans' normally fattened-up Hammond B-3 comes across as a bit too rehearsed, the crack of his brother Alan's snare a bit too clipped, and the bite of Eric Krasno's guitar a bit too muzzled.Fortunately, by the time "Joyful Girl"-an Ani DiFranco-penned ballad featuring an almost gospel-tinged vocal by Dave Matthews, replete with horn swells and coral sitar-kicks into gear, the ever-elusive ingredient called *feel* has fully reared up in the mix, and we can begin digging Next as the slippery, soulful and funky experience it was no doubt meant to be.

Granted, Next was already conceived as somewhat of a departure for Soulive, considering the heightened role of alto saxophonist Sam Kininger, who appears as a side artist on Doin' Something but this time out is much more integrated into the band's overall sound.That creative move, along with added guest spots from the Roots' frontman Black Thought (positing mad flow on the infectious Philly funk workout "Clap!"), hip-hop guru Talib Kweli (stealth-rhyming on "Bridge to 'Bama") and neo-soul chanteuse Amel Larrieux (waxing deep on the sexy-sweet "I Don't Know") make this record a key evolutionary step for the group-right down to Neal Evans' choice of various analog synths to augment his basslines (as the mooged-out left-hand vamp of "Kalen" attests).In their quest for a true fusion of instrumental jazz, funk, soul and hip-hop, it turns out Soulive have concocted more of a polished studio effort with Next than anything they've done to date.-Bill Murphy

5-0 out of 5 stars Some Flavor From Memphis via NYC!
I am a loyal jazz fan and I have never encountered a group with this much flavor, creativity and energy like Soulive displays in this cd-"Next". The whole cd is slamming with alot of influences in jazz, r&b, hip-hop and pop/alternative,etc. Don't get me wrong they stick to their jazz roots but, this cd has something for everybody from the jazz fan to the hip-hop fan that wants to hear something alittle bit different. This cd is one that I would take everywhere with me! The cd has alot of energy and versatility to it. Listening to the vocal artists like Dave Matthews, "Black Thought", Amel Larrieux and Talib Kweli definitely correlate what direction that Soulive wants to go in on this cd. Also, from an instumental standpoint, check out tracks 2, 3, 5, 8, 11, & 12-you won't be disappointed at all! I love the drummer Alan Evans and it seems to me that he sets the whole tone. Also, I feel that the whole group is definitely connected and that they love playing with one another. I have already started to collect everything that Soulive has recorded. This album is definitely a must for your music collection!

1-0 out of 5 stars Where will Soulive go next?
Soulive, where are you going? Where are the days of the ripping Hammond solos and funk infused jams? It seems that Soulive has turned away from the elements that made them unique and turned into a mainstream barely jazz, mostly R&B/hip hop band. When they began touring and later began releasing albums they were a power trio of drums guitar and a B3 Hammond organ that brought all three together into a unique sound that defined Soulive. Apparently their departure from Blue Note Records has also meant a departure from the Soulive we all grew to know and love. Soulive's first and biggest mistake was the permanent addition of Sam Kissinger to the band on alto sax. Now don't get me wrong Sam is a talented guy and the sax sounds good most of the time. What really dissapoints me about the addition of Sam is the fact that Neal and Eric have moved to backround to make room for Sam in front, and Neal and Eric are really what soulive is all about. The songs on this album unfortunately don't make it any better. "Joyful Girl", "Clap", and "I Don't Know" are TERRIBLE. "Joyful Girl" with Dave Matthews is hardly jazz at all, it's a painfully slow R&B ballad with no sign of Neal's talent on the B3 Hammond. "Clap" featuring Black Thought of the Roots is just another hip hop song anyone could do, there is no jazz, funk, or talent shown here at all. The Roots are a great group and I think Soulive could have done something so much better with Black Thought. "I Don't Know" is probably the worst song on the album. There is literally no trace of jazz at all, it is pure R&B/hip hop. Neal hardly appears at all and Eric's guitar is so produced it's almost painful to listen to. The rest of the songs are just bad, they have too much sax and drums and too little Soulive. The only song that saves face for the entire album is E.D Hambone, and it's not even that great, but it's live and features Neal on the old B3 so it earns one star for a band that can (and has) made 5 star albums. I can't recommend this album to anyone but those who listen to hip hop and/or top 40 radio. If you are a Soulive fan please don't get this, it will only dissapoint you. Soulive, if this is what's next leave me out! ... Read more

Editorial Review

The "music from and inspired by" the Mel Gibson Vietnam film is a full slate of new recordings by a wide range of mainstream stars, along with bagpipe and glee-club pieces that convey the movie's sobriety. Quiet, detailed vignettes by Mary Chapin Carpenter (Patty Griffin's "My Dear Old Friend") and India Arie ("Good Man") express the human losses inherent in the conflict, while the pop-country duo Montgomery Gentry offer "Didn't I," the plaint of the returning vet. Much of the rest is inspirational pop of various stripes. Johnny Cash and Dave Matthews team for the ethereal "For You," while Five for Fighting's "The Beautiful" recalls Matthews's most radio-ready tracks. Atmospheric moments from Christian-poppers and up-and-coming Nashville stars complete the package, which is sure to appeal both to fans of the film and those who'll apply the patriotic sentiments to present-day realities. --Bob Roget ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Mansions of the Lord, as used in Reagan Funeral Recessional
Many millions were moved to tears by the dramatic conclusion of the funeral of President Ronald Reagan, in which a powerful piece of choral and instrumental music was played while the honor guard marched in, lifted the casket, and recessed down the aisle with the cross and candles and priests leading the way. That music was an arrangement of the last cut on this album, and the album is worth it if only to be able to have this music handy for future reference. I remember thinking, as the tears streamed uncontrollably down my face, that I'd have maintained my composure but for the music. Indeed, I never shed a tear during the funeral until that music began to play over the scene of the handsome young soldiers bearing their commander-in-chief to his final resting place. I remember thinking that this music had a cinematic quality to it, deeply sad but carrying a strength and resilience that perfectly matched the image of the President as he was recalled by the eulogies of those who loved him. A powerful piece of music indeed, and one that should be remembered even if the rest of the album is less memorable.

1-0 out of 5 stars Only two songs from the movie!
I gave this one star because it winds up with the amazing piece "Mansions Of the Lord" which is a soaring chorus, yet also includes a few seconds of the beautiful orchestral "Final Departure."The rest of the CD is worthy of zero stars.I bought this in a store because it was in the soundtrack section and if you don't look closely to see the fine print you'll miss the words "music .. inspired by.." I wanted the score and quickly picked it up thinking that was what it was.I think the record company did this on purpose (and they wonder why everyone despises "record" companies!) so people like me would buy it, and not find out that they were suckered until they get home!

Aside from the final piece, and "Sgt MacKenzie" (which is good in the film, but not something I'd listen to on a CD), this is nothing but a country music (which I despise) CD and the songs have nothing to do with the movie!I paid $15.00 for a CD with ONE good song (which is another reason why I rarely buy CDs)!

The soundtrack score of the movie is breathtaking. Spend your money on that. Save your hard earned money and don't bother buying this country music CD which has almost nothing to do with the movie!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent compilation
This "songs inspired by the movie" soundtrack is one of the best put together albums of it's type that I have ever listened to.While most of the music on this album was not in the movie, the general themes and emotions are evocative of the movie "We Were Soldiers," and yet, this album can stand on it's own two feet and appeal to someone who has yet to see the film.As a wife and sister of military personnel, this album moves me because it's able to tap into the psychology of what soldiers and their families go through, not just in Vietnam, but also in the present day situations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Perhaps the most haunting songs on the album are those by Mary Chapin Carpenter, India.Arie, Train, Montgomery Gentry and the duet between Dave Matthews and Johnny Cash.Carpenter's "My Dear Old Friend", written by Patty Griffin, is haunting in its introspection of a friendship torn by war.Arie's "Good Man" manages to eloquently portray the grief of a wife left behind to raise the children when the husband/soldier dies in war.The duet between Cash and Matthews is a stirring look at the bond between fellow soldiers.

Perhaps the weakest of the songs (in my opinion) are those by Rascal Flatts, Tammy Cochran, and the duet between Michael McDonald and Jamie O'Neal. They were much to upbeat and sugary pop-music feeling for my tastes, and they didn't seem to fit with the compelling, introspective nature of the rest of the songs.Overall, however, these songs aren't bad, and it's easy enough to press the skip button on your CD player to get past them.

This is an excellent CD, and well worth the listen. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Sure as hell better than the red album...
While the first half of the Woodstock 99 recording flopped more than inspired, the Blue Album is full of musicians with an actual message to get across and trying to accomplish something musical, unlike imbecile acts such as Kid Rock, Limp Bizkit, and DMX, who seem to have nothing to say and are only there as drunken entertainment. The Red Album did have its shining moments, as Rage Against The Machine, Sevendust, Megadeth, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Live, and even Creed performed wonderfully, and thankfully the blue disc saves the entire Woodstock recording experience. Although there are several artists who I am not a fan of on this disc, all the musicians featured here have undeniable ambition that I can appreciate either way, such as Jewel, Sheryl Crow, Elvis Costello, Alanis Morissette, and Bruce Hornsby, all of which deliver more musically than most of the horrible alt-metal acts at Woodstock.

The rest of the CD shines even moreso, with Dave Matthews Band churning out an awesome version of "Tripping Billies", The Roots performing "Adrenaline" flawlessly, and Our Lady Peace delivering intensely with "Superman's Dead". The utter funkiness of G. Love & Special Sauce combined with Jamiroquai and with the folkish rocking of Rusted Root make the whole recording a winner in some form or another, not to mention the amazing Everlast delivering "Ends" on a silver platter and the Chemical Brothers serving up "Block Rockin' Beats" in their usual mind-bending electronic soundscape. Guster and Everclear also dazzle the stage.

If you're going to get one of the Woodstock 1999 recordings, get this one instead of the Red Album, the other disc will only disappoint save for a few tracks, where as with this half the listener can appreciate all the music and energy, regardless of whether they're fans of each individual artist. Hopefully the potential Woodstock 2004 won't be such a calamity as '99.

Editorial Review

It's difficult to fathom the thinking behind this overview of VH1's popular Storytellers series. Begin with the fact that the actual stories are expunged from the recording. If you want the tales behind the songs, you'll have to read the booklet. So the music is left to stand on its own, but with each of the 15 artists allowed one selection to make their mark, even those that stand tall don't stand for long. David Bowie brings a tremendous focus to "China Girl"; Sheryl Crow and Stevie Nicks mix their voices in "Strong Enough" to striking effect; and the Eurythmics's "Here Comes the Rain Again" improves upon the hit original. On the downside, Jewel's caterwauling in "Who Will Save Your Soul" (the singer gets tangled up in a ball of yarn as she meows into the mic) makes one want to use "scat" in the feline rather than the Fitzgerald sense of the term. --Steven Stolder ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice collection from a cool show...
Nice collection from a cool show. Includes David Bowie, Stevie Nicks, Pretenders, Counting Crows, Dave Matthews, Lisa Loeb, John Popper, James Taylor, Sheryl Crow, Eurythmics, Natalie Merchant, John Melloncamp, Elvis Costello, The Bee Gees and "surprise...surprise" the strongest cut Who Will Save Your Soul by Jewel. They did it right by not including the preceding story of each song on the CD but they did print them on the liner notes, therefore you won't have to listed to intro over and over. But where's the original storyteller Ray Davies? And wouldn't Bruce Springsteen be great on this show?

3-0 out of 5 stars Poor recording quality plagues the CD....
Maybe the person mastering the recording had a bad day, but I found it difficult to listen to, even though I enjoy alot of the music.Also, the magic of the Storytellers series is lost, because they omitted the artist's telling the stories.The stories are printed in the liner notes.Jewel gives a very good romp in "Who will save your soul".John Popper of Blues Traveler does a very interesting piece, which is an open letter to Satan regarding Steven, a childhood friend who had several tragic moments in his life."Rain King" is excellent!With all of these wonderful tracks, it is a shame the recording wasn't mastered very well.I have relegated the disc to my work desk, where it plays through cheap computer speakers.I would have rated it much lower, but the content it very good and is the only saving grace of the disc.Audiophiles need not apply, as you will be utterly disappointed.

3-0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent
"VH1 Storytellers" has some definite high points, such as "Rain King" (Counting Crows), "Crash Into Me" (Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds), "Regarding Steven" (BluesTraveler), and "Jack & Diane" (John Mellencamp). However, thelow points on this CD are so low that it makes for a difficult listen, likethe endless meandering at the end of "Who Will Save Your Soul?"(Jewel). All in all not a bad CD but, again, difficult to listen throughfrom beginning to end. The best song on this CD is "Rain King".Give it a listen. ... Read more

Editorial Review

The mellow soundtrack to the Adam Sandler movie Mr. Deeds bears little resemblance to the raunchy persona the actor exhibits on his music/comedy albums. Instead, the midtempo love-struck rock ballads on the disc reflect Sandler's Wedding Singer-style sensitive side. U2 and Lit contribute senior prom-worthy slow dancers laden with weepy strings, while banjo-happy Travis and a summery Weezer song further the breezy atmosphere. The new cuts fare even better--Dave Matthews Band's heartfelt, subdued anthem and Counting Crows' jangly, R.E.M.-like upbeat rocker are highlights, as is Ben Kweller's piece of doe-eyed, melodic piano pop. The only puzzling part of the album is the inclusion of tracks from David Bowie (complete with an irritating spoken-word intro from Sandler), Pete Townshend, and Yes. Though the sterling quality of such classic music is obvious, their vintage nature is an odd exercise in forced diversity within the sea of modern music. Nevertheless, Mr. Deeds, while a little plain, is ultimately inoffensive and easy on the ears. --Annie Zaleski ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW
All I can really say is WOW.Words cannot express the pleasure my mind endured while listening to this album.This is one that cannot be described, you must listen for yourself ~ you will not be disappointed!

5-0 out of 5 stars It's not your ordinary jazz
Some people think that jazz has already reached its peak and that it's been steadily declining since the 1960s.These people have not listened to Thompson D'earth."Mercury" is a great example of how Jazz Fusion is the wave of the future.These guys blend swing, bebop, Free and avant-garde, creating not your typical type of jazz.They keep your foot tapping and your mind guessing.To fuse it even more they throw in a splash of pop rock with the angelic voice of Dave Matthews on Copeland's "Darkness", and Carter Beauford on drums throughout the entire album.
This album has become a permanent fixture in my cd player, and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys good music.If you want to go a little more raw, check out "Live at Millers" - you'll be blown away.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mercury - An excellent record
Besides giving me his wonderful gift of his own music, Dave Matthews has opened the door to a whole section of music that I was missing out on. Upon entering graduate school at UVa I've made the journey to the downtown mall a handfull of times to check out John D'earth at Miller's. I had always heard about this magical musical place, and let me tell you they were right, John, and Dawn Thompson, and Jamal Milner, and Greg Howard, all the names I had heard so many great things about, are just that, they're great great musicians. Thursday nights have never been so fun. This new record features some incredible jazz, I can't turn off Moment by Moment or Ether. You can feel Carter the whole record, his explosive percussion is a phenomenal backing to this record. For the Dave fan in me the haunting lead on Copeland's Darkness is very cool. Both the Live Thursday Night and Mercury records have taken their place alongside the rest of my expansive DMB collection on the top shelf. Explore these musicians and these two records, you won't regret it. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Smooth Jazz
This is an excellent compelation by very talented muscians. I too am a Dave Matthews Band fan which is what initially attracted me to the album. The reason I bought it however was becasue I am a fan of Jazz. This album is amazingly smooth, and as a fan of Piano, I really appreciated the smooth transitions and playing of Soko. The reason I give it only four stars is that I feel only the first five tracks (which happens to be the tracks that Leroi Moore, DMB sax guy extraordinare play on) are the only ones I really enjoyed. I didn't particularly liked the last three. I also have issues with some sloppy and excessive piano parts. This isn't to say there missed notes, just very excited and "busy" moments where the smoothness was lost. It was brief, however, so don't worry. Whereas I wouldn't go far to call this a "Must Have", if you enjoy jazz and don't mind spending for quality music, I highly recommend this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Relaxing, smooth, and all too enjoyable
How can one dislike the flowing manner of these amazing musicians? If you are a true fan of jazz then this record is for you. If you're a mainsteam Davehead, then well, maybe you should start off your jazz exploration with something a little more mainstream. Trust me, I am a huge DMB supporter, but if in buying this record I wasn't really anticipating Dave's vocals or even Roi's eloquant sax riffs. I bought it for the music. You should do the same.

Editorial Review

Dave Matthews Band's first album, Remember Two Things, was self-released in 1993, and was reissued by RCA in 1997. Truly serious Dave Matthews fans all have well-worn copies on the original Bama Rags label, and will tell you they bought them from Dave himself. But if you're less of a hard-liner, this package will do nicely. It's a live album, with the exceptions of "Seek Up" and "Minarets," and the band's sound is pretty much all there. So are the radio hits from Under the Table and Dreaming. If you want only one live document, Live at Red Rocks has more key tracks. But no Dave Matthews fan wants only one live document. Bonus Track (of sorts): "Seek Up (Reprise)." --Gavin McNett ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best DMB work ever
Remember Two Things is an essential album for any fans of the Dave Matthews Band. It gives a glimpse of the band in their prime, in my opinion, out side of the studio. The other early albums are a bit too overproduced for my tastes, but they are still worth buying. I first saw DMB in 1994 at the Roseland(?) in NYC about 25 feet from the stage. This album recreates that experience. Seeing them later in the large venues is more like listening to the later albums. Live at the Red Rocks is good too, but only because it has more songs.

On to the tracks:
1. Ants Marching - The best released version of this song that I've heard with the full band. The energy of the band really shines. I think the version with just Dave and Tim Reynolds on Live at Luther College tops it.
2. Tripping Billies - Best version of this song. It sounds clean, soothing, and joyful at the same time.
3. Recently - I prefer the version on the Recently EP. I love this song, but 8 minutes is just too long.
4. Satellite - A good rendition of this song. The other versions are overproduced (too many instruments, too many sound effects).
5. One Sweet World - Excellent version of this song. The rest of the band is at their best and the sound is very full.
6. The Song That Jane Likes - My favorite song on the album. They just don't write songs this fun and groovy anymore. Not on any (I think) of the studio albums.
7. Minarets - A studio version. I have never really enjoyed this song. It's not bad, but the tone doesn't fit the rest of the album.
8. Seek Up - A great version of this song. It's almost two songs in one. When the chorus kicks in, its very uplifting.
9. I'll Back You Up - I still don't believe this is a live version, because it sounds so crisp and intimate. Vocally, one of Dave's best songs.
10. The Christmas Song - My 2nd favorite song. Despite anyone's beliefs, this summarizes the message of Jesus in a simple and beautiful way.

5-0 out of 5 stars An awesome debut!!
I have really only discovered the greatness of Dave Matthews and his talented band members in the past two years or so. But I quickly became a fan after purchasing Remember Two Things. Since then I have bought practically every release and enjoyed all of them immensely, but Remember Two Things is in a league of its own. I'll quickly say that the DMB's earliest music is some of their best.Two of the album highlights are "One Sweet World," with its cheerful lyrics and energetic music, and "I'll Back You Up" is my favorite song that incorporates true friendship with romance. The acoustic track "Christmas Song" is also very moving.
I highly recommend this for all DMB fans, or someone who's just curious and wants to purchase one of their albums.This is their greatest, and probably the CD I play most often.

1-0 out of 5 stars Remember two things, indeed ...
Here, with their first lesson, the DMB gave us a warning :
Remember Two Things :

1- Do not buy this cd

Editorial Review

This is the seventh live Stones album and the second to appear in three years. Now, what do you want to bet the three men who've appeared on every one of them--Mick, Keith, and Charlie--couldn't name them without a cheat sheet? Chances are, they won't remember this one in five years. Culled from the Bridges to Babylon tour, No Security feels more like a tour memento than a stand-on-its-own recording. The 13 tracks are a mix of familiar chestnuts ("Gimme Shelter," "Live with Me," "The Last Time"), welcome restorations ("Sister Morphine," "Memory Motel"), and tertiary Jagger-Richards tunes ("Flip the Switch," "Thief in the Night"). A few recruits are along for the ride: Taj Mahal turns up on the breath catcher "Corinna," Dave Matthews shares vocals with Mick on "Memory Motel," and jazzman Joshua Redman solos on "Waiting on a Friend." They're all, no doubt, quite proud to have joined these legends on stage and CD. But when they want to hear live Stones, it's a good bet even they will reach for Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out before No Security. --Steven Stolder ... Read more

This "live" Rolling Stones release may not be for the customer looking for all the hits "live"...you can find those on many other "live" Stone releases.This "live" release is for the true Stones fan who wants to see the Stones go deeper into their own classic rock catalog and do more of these songs in concert.In 2003-2004, we got to see the Stones doing just that on tour and playing songs they wouldn't normally do in concert and it was a real treat.Same with this release, if you are a true Stones fan, you won't be disappointed.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not an essential live album, but a really enjoyable one
The Rolling Stones have released numerous live albums, some great, some merely so-so.
"No Security" documents the 1997-98 "Bridges to Babylon"-tour, and it pretty much avoids the songs that have been included on previous live albums (no "Jumping Jack Flash" this time!).

Instead it draws on newer material ("You Got Me Rocking", "Waiting On A Friend", "Saint Of Me") and somewhat lesser-known songs, as well as documenting guest appearences by Taj Mahal (on "Corinna") and Dave Matthews (on a great "Memory Motel").

The sound is very good, and the Stones lay down a swaggering, bluesy groove, anchored by Keith Richards' muscular riffs and the rock-solid backbeat of Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman.
Mick Jagger is in fine form, too, and "No Security" has got that nice "live" feel that you want from a concert recording, making it a thoroughly enjoyable addition to the Stones' catalogue.

3-0 out of 5 stars Middling At Best
As far as live albums go, The Rolling Stones have had a pretty shaky record. Their first concert recording, 1966's "Got Live If You Want It", suffered from vapid studio overdubbbing and muddy audio. But they made up for it with the pivotal 1970 release "Get Yer Ya - Ya's Out", which ranks among the greatest live albums ever made. 7 years later came "Love You Live", which was a bit muddy in terms of sound but showcased their exhilerating energy live. Another 4 years passed before "Still Life" was released. It was ok but suffered from bad playing and a bland song selection. 10 years passed before they struck gold with "Flashpoint", which once more proved that they could still rock. 5 years later came the classic unplugged "Stripped". 4 years wore on before 1999's "No Security", culled from their astonishing "Bridges To Bablylon" tour, one of their best in recent memory. Unfortunately, the results did not meet fans' expectations.

The thing that doesn't work is the song selection. None of the songs here are what you'd expect to hear in a regular Stones concert. No "Satisfaction", no "Jumpin' Jack Flash", not even a "Brown Sugar". What got here are 14 songs that range from great to tepid. The great songs are the older ones, including "The Last Time", "Respectable", "Waiting On A Friend" and especially "Gimme Shelter" and "Live With Me". And it was great to finally here "Sister Morphine" done live. But the majority of songs belong in the tepid category. The newer songs especially irked me. I never cared for "Thief In The Night", "Out Of Control" or "Flip The Switch". And the two duets don't do it to me either.

If you want to hear The Rolling Stones doing what they do best live, get "Get Yer Ya - Ya's Out", "Love You Live", "Flashpoint" and "Stripped", plus the "40 Flicks" dvd boxed set. But avoid the other 3 live albums I mentioned and the live movie "Let's Spend The Night Together". ... Read more

Editorial Review

This collection marks the fifth live Matthews collection in eight years. But while previous surveys have chronicled the band's nascent ambitions (Remember Two Things), initial fame (Live at Red Rocks), solo pretensions (Live at Luther College) and PBS-ready charms (Listener Supported), this double-disc set, recorded at the final show of their '98 tour, seems bent on formally crowning Matthews and company as arena-filling superstars--warts and all.

With a set listing culled largely from the pop-oriented Crash and more internationally experimental Before These Crowded Streets, the proceedings held some promise. But, like most arena bands before them, the DMB generally amps the nuances right out of the mix here. "The Last Stop" recalls where Led Zep's own world-music pretensions led them, while "Pantala Naga Pampa" skirts dangerously close to Kenny G. territory before finding its jazz-funk stride. Though they groove mightily and consistently throughout, the DMB's oft-criticized jam-band ethos often seems strangely burnished and studio-overdubbed to homogenous extremes here. And while legend Maceo Parker's sax further ignites the crowd-pleaser "What Would You Say," as guitarist and frequent Matthews collaborator Tim Reynolds plays guest guitar god throughout, it's Matthews's own shamanic, oft-trancelike vocal excursions that barely keep this one from lapsing into DMB's McLive album. Try Budokan next time? --Jerry McCulley ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars complements Live at Red Rocks perfectly
and it is at least as good, sometimes even better.Both this one and Red Rocks have a completely different song list, which covers all of the band's best songs.If you are new to the band I strongly recommend you get Red Rocks first, and if you like it, get this one (believe me, they are both very much worth the price).While Red Rocks has a lot of songs from Under the Table and Dreaming, live in chicago has a lot from Crash.I can't believe so many people don't like this live set more; it completely rocks and is definitely not only for diehard fans.anyone can appreciate the extreme beauty in the music, especially "rapunzel" and "don't drink the water."I recommend this cd to anyone who wants to branch out in their music collection.Enjoy!

5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST live album by Dave Matthews Band or anyone!!!
If you don't give this live album the best possible rating with a raving review then you better get you head examined.This album will blow you away every single time you listen it.But, if you don't listen to Dave Matthews Band's actual albums or go to any of their concerts or if you are one of those avid hate DMB type people, I recommend you do NOT get this album.Only those people who can appreciate the actual musical talent and that have listened to DMB over the years through R2R, UTTAD, Red Rocks, Crash, BTCS, and Luther College will you actually appreciate how amazing this cd really is.In my opinion, it doesn't get any better than the live versions of The Last Stop, Lie in Our Graves (best released version), into to Pantala Naga Pampa is unreal, The Maker (only released version and it is amazing), Anyone Seen the Bridge is crazy, an absoluley beautiful acoustic version of Christmas song (band eventually comes in there at the end), and one of the most exciting All Along the Watchtowers that DMB has put out.All in all, this is the most developed and by far and away the top DMB live album released to date!

5-0 out of 5 stars Holds up to many repeat listens!
This is one of those rare albums that stayed in my car for many repeat listens. Amazing musicians and an extraordinary live band allow me to grade this one 5 stars! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars it's welcoming
My favorite song on this album is "I think I love you" performed by Less Than Jake. Other songs are okay like "Your Lucky Day In Hell" by the Eels.

3-0 out of 5 stars The Most Outregous Soundtrack That Is stupid
First of to say that
this soundtrack was the waste of my damn time . if anyone wants to buy this soundtrack please do not but it .
the songs in this songs are so unsuitable to the soundtrack . i thought that the soundtrack would include heavy horror tunes by heavy metal bands . instead the first song of the record had a chessy intro into the cd and for goodness sake this rapper cant even rap .
but the rest of the songs werent affective to what the movie was like .
if you have an horror movie like scream you wouldnt have a soundtrack like this . the producers of the cd should of thought to put these chessy songs before it was even released .

a good song i wouldnt be talking [bad] about is She's always In My Hair . the elements of this song had included instruments not like teh first song which consited of computer generated beats and etc . hevay metal was strongly needed for this sound track atleast some songs had heavy metal . but to rest to case my do not buy this stupidity cd which is horrible stupid and doesnt match to the soundtrack .
when people buy a cd they want the same exprience as the movie

3-0 out of 5 stars Typical teenager music
This CD has only two things working for it. Okay, okay, I take that back. Only one. But I'll put the other one down as well. The first one (and least important) is that it offers a good blend of tunes. It's not just all metal/rock, it also has some hip hop on it as well. Only thing is that this is geared for teens. I do commend this soundtrack as my point #2 being: "NICK CAVE". He's an awesome musician and not very many people listen to him. Buy one of his CDs and not this one. I gave this one 3 stars due to Nick Cave. ... Read more

Editorial Review

If you're of the opinion that the Grateful Dead comparisons that dog the Dave Matthews Band ring false, consider that with the release of Listener Supported, Matthews has put out more live albums (four, if you count Live at Luther College, a duet album with Tim Reynolds) than studio efforts (three, if you don't count the Recently EP). That's a lot of live albums, but Matthews fans probably wouldn't have it any other way. Now it's more possible than ever to haggle over which version of, say, "Warehouse"--which appears on Live at Red Rocks, Luther College, and the new album, as well as on Recently and Under the Table and Dreaming--is definitive. But "Warehouse" aside, the Matthews Band isn't making the same album over and over. Listener Supported contains a nice mix of tunes, albeit with a fair emphasis on their most recent studio effort, Before These Crowded Streets. Among the highlights is a funky, freewheeling take on "Rapunzel," and gorgeous readings of "#41," and the traditional country tune "Long Black Veil." With over two and a half hours of music, the album is enough to sate most DMB fans, at least until the next live album turns up. --Daniel Durchholz ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent album by an excellent preformer.
In my opinion this probaly the best live Dave Matthews Band performance that has been released thus far.One thing I enjoy about this release is that it is very instrumental.For example on "#41" which runs for over nine minutes there are two viloin solos a flute solo an amazing performance on the sax by Leroi Moore and a small guitar solo by dave.This type of "jamming" is present in other songs like "Jimi Thing". The song selection for this album is great.It offers a wide varity of DMB songs that all blend perfectly to form a great album.

1-0 out of 5 stars Listener Supported by Limited Warranty Refund within 30 days
The photo on the CD cover vaguely resembles that of 'Stand', a famous record from the Woodstock-era group Sly And The Family Stone. Very impressive! Dave Matthews is not just a humorist but proves as well an excellent imitator, although not nearly as good as Jerry Seinfeld's truly great mimics of 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds'. On 'Listener Supported', Mr Matthews and his cohorts have repeated their previous accomplishments, and then some. For a live recording the sound is good. But, then, what about the music? Oups! Per chance, Dave Matthews exceptionally provides a limited warranty with the purchase this album : A stroke of genius because, according to a survey, about 2/3 of the sales will eventually be returned to the seller for full refund. Customers are less 'at risk' with such a good policy. Our sincere congratulations to Dave Matthews for such a pioneering way in selling records. Of course, we hope the same advantages will be offered to those who will eventually buy their music online. We do have expectations that, someday, Dave Matthews will appear before the Congress to promote his idea. Of course, captain 'Swift-Boat' Kerry has the opportunity here for pushing ahead that great idea throughout his campaign. Ok, now i must go in order to send back my own copy of this disc for 'full refund'.

4-0 out of 5 stars The closest to a real DMB concert that I've ever been!
I have never been to a Dave Matthews Band concert, and until I do get a chance to go, CDs like Listener Supported will be the closest thing I could get to hearing a concert.The music on this cd is great, but I find the downfall to this cd is the lack of talking.Since I have never been to a DMB concert, I can't really say to them, but every other concert I have ever been to has the band saying some stuff every few songs.It seems like on this cd, the only thing that is really said is "Thank you" or "You Smell good tonight" or "goodbye".I really missed this talking between songs on this cd.

My favorite songs on this cd were Rupunzel, Warehouse, and True Reflections. ... Read more
