Product Description

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

Crash is the refreshing breather amidst mass pop/rock confusion in America. The Dave Matthews Band has combined introspection, diversity, reflection, and skill to create one of the finest records available. As the band's second major release, Crash is, if nothing else, a testament to musical exploration. The album swings from the twangy and up-beat "So Much To Say" opening to the slow, pondering unwind of the closing "Proudest Monkey," with lots of groove-rock, funk, jazz, and intensity thrown in between. The record features studio-recorded compilations of some songs fans have heard before ("Two Step," "Drive In Drive Out," "Tripping Billies," "Proudest Monkey"), as well as a breath-taking array of newly inspired lyrics and harmony. The end result is a wonderfully inviting album that is an addictive alternative to the unsure pop/rock artists of our day, and Dave Matthews Band fans are only too happy to see it. It's easy to see why "Crash Into Me" was the massive success that it was, topping billboard charts across the country for the better part of six months; but less noticed are tracks like "#41," subtle, delicate, and pristine. Much to the band's credit, these are the tracks that support the backbone of much of the album. Crash is unlike a great many albums today in that it features something for just about everyone. Intricate acoustics dominate much of the opening track before moving into a tasteful recording of the concert-favorite "Two Step," which demonstrates moving percussion that manages to maintain a feel-good mood that compliments the theme of the song.Read more ›

This band is acoustic, but has the most amazing combination of vocals, drums, violins, saxophones, whistles, flutes, bass, and electric bass. Dave may not be your most talented singer in the world, but what he says is so awesome. I'll start at the beginning of the CD. "So Much To Say" is a song that is way too true for me. He's talking about his hell and is ever so wise with, "Sometimes I find it's easy to be myself, Sometimes I find it's better to be somebody else," and God, how true... The only bad part is Dave is bursting with inspiring words, but ends up repeating "So much to say" too much. Then there is "Two Step" with an amazing into... and the awesome metaphor of "Hey, my love, you came to me like wine comes to this mouth, grown tired of water all the time, you quench my heart and you quench my mind," "Crash into me" is your radio played song w/ a cool video... "Who's got their claws in you my friend?" Good question... Dave will always give you something to think about Awesome sounds... "Too Much," has an awesome baritone sax part. It shows off Leroi's talent. Dave sings in an neat way. "#41" is a slow, pensive song, and he is very soft sounding, but deep things are said. "Say Goodbye," is about a girl friend no doubt, and it's kind of sad. Probably my least fav. song, but I have none. "Drive in Drive Out," has some great lines that are humorous poetry...Read more ›

The second studio album from the Dave Matthews Band, entitled "Crash" is outstanding. As shown in their previous studio album "Under The Table and Dreaming", the Dave Matthews Band creates a sound that is unique from all other bands and catches the ear of any listener with a sence for good music. Dave Matthews, Carter Beauford, Stefan Lessard, Boyd Tinsley, Leroi Moore, and guest electric guitarist Tim Reynolds have put together 12 outstanding songs that demonstrate amazing musical talent. "So Much To Say" is upbeat and discusses we are innocent and quiet until we reach a certain age, and then we become older and we begin to talk a lot, not necessarily in a literal sense. "Two Step" is also upbeat and begins with an amazing into and an amazing chorus which preaches the words "Celebrate we will because life is short, but sweet for certain." "Crash Into Me" is probably the most popular song on this album. It is a love song the sound of the Dave Matthews Band with Dave's incredible gift of song writing. Song number 4, "Too Much" is the one of the most popular live songs on this album due to its blend of talent of the amazing musicians in this band. Next, "#41", titled as so because of it was the 41st song written by Dave Matthews and describes his strugle with money in his early life. "Say Goodbye" compares very well with "Crash Into Me" and is another outstanding love song. "Drive in, Drive Out" also draws comparisons to a previous song, "Too Much." "Let You Down" is a mellow tune that includes Dave appologizing for sins. "Lie in our Graves" is an upbeat song that is about having no regrets.Read more ›
