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 often 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 Gabrielesque in scope, from Matthews's 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's tendency to eschew conventional hooks, leaves the album stalled between the group's jam-band compulsion and radio-friendly 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

DMB's latest release, "Everyday", is an excellent album. Fans of any other band would be thrilled at such a powerful, upbeat product. Fans of Dave Matthews Band however have come to expect something else from DMBs CDs. Dave Matthews Band has never been about following the "rules" of commercial success and confining songs to more radio-friendly 4 minute creations; nor have they ever shyed away from extensive break down jams that lead into the next track (making each album feel like one continuous effort). Dave Matthews Band has always stayed "true to the music, commericial rules be damned." It is these and other qualities that have attracted so many fans of all types. Sadly, Everyday departs from these basic qualities. Glen Ballard, producer of Everday, recently was quoted on PBS's Charlie Rose Show as saying about fans, "They don't want extensive jams on an album...That's what a concert is for." (One wonders if Ballard has ever heard of such bands as Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, to name a few...) Ballard therefore packages all songs on Everyday to under four minutes, save one which is slighty under five. DMB fans might find it frustrating that just when the band begins to jam, the music fades out in the name of radio-friendly songs. Musically "Everyday" is complex and exciting, just as one would expect from Dave Matthews Band. Fans however will be disappointed to find that violinist Boyd Tinsley and saxophonist LeRoi Moore are all but nonexistent on the album, instead replaced by Ballard on a retro-80's-style keyboard for accompanyment. In total, to their credit DMB is clearly expanding their musical borders in this album, providing an enjoyable (albeit different) musical experience.Read more ›

It's strange that Dave Matthews Band's newest studio release is titled Everyday. After all, the word "everyday" carries a sense of normality and routine. But with new producer Glen Ballard behind the board, the band's new album is not your "everyday" DMB record. Dumping longtime producer Steve Lillywhite for Ballard (best known for his biggest contribution to pop music: Alanis Morrisette's Jagged Little Pill), Everyday has turned into a product belonging only to Matthews and Ballard. After the the two wrote 12 songs together in L.A., they invited the rest of the band to record them. In an "everyday" DMB recording session, Matthews would usually play a few licks on the guitar and the remaining four would gradually join in to create the full sound. But when bassist Stefan Lessard, violinist Boyd Tinsley, sax player Leroi Moore and drummer Carter Beauford arrived in Los Angeles, Ballard had charted out the songs on paper for each musician to follow during the recording process, thus eliminating the creative process and input that the entire quintet had produced in the band's previous three studio albums. The result is a collection of songs that fail to capture the essence of Dave Matthews Band - an essence that usually features an album of performances, not routine recording sessions. The album totally changes DMB's change of pace, evident by its 50 minute-51 second duration (compared to the previous three records that lasted well over an hour). All the songs are short, limiting band members to minimal musical expression. Also, the songs contain the influence of Ballard's rock/pop feel throughout. Gone are the fun grooves as the rhythms of Beauford (arguably the best drummer in the business) are limited to rock and pop.Read more ›

Though it's a tad early to celebrate, DMB's latest release, Everyday is a great departure for the band. Through their transformation over the years, Matthews, Lessard, Tinsley, Moore and Beauford have gone from the happy jams of Recently (Remember 2 Things) to the brilliant musical composition of The Stone (Before these Crowded Streets) and now to the edgy riffs of the band's new single, I did It. In abonding an already recorded album of songs like Grey Street and Sweet Up & Down, Dave and the boys returned to the studio to rewrite a new album along side new producer Glenn Ballard (Aerosmith, No Doubt), and even colaborating alongside friend Carlos Santana on the latin piece, Mother Father. The final product is an awesome new sound for such a band. Putting a hold on the twangy riffs in What Would You Say and evolving into cutting edge sounds as heard in The Space Between. Have no fear though, Dave fans. Though this recent departure seems tragic in a sense, all of the elements can still be heard. Boyd's still ripping up his violin, Carter maintains his status of best drummer in the world, and Roi is still beeboppin away on his sax (without sunglasses this time). Just go with the flow on this energy-packed release by the band, and remember that they never did a single thing that did a single thing to change the ugly ways of the world, but Dave Matthews Band can still rock!

Let me start by saying that I am a huge DMB fan. When I first listened to 'Everyday', I was disappointed. Like many other people, all I heard was Dave's voice over lifeless electric guitar riffs. After several listens, I have to say that 'Everyday' has become one of my favorite studio DMB albums.
1) I Did It - I couldn't stand this song until I imagined the smile on Dave's face as he was singing it. He Did It, alright, he made some stylistic changes, damn the critics.
2) When The World Ends - Very, very sexy song.. lyrics reminiscient of Crash Into Me.. "Your legs don't work 'cause you want me, so you just lie spread to the wall.." My only qualm with this song is the placement on the CD.. I think it would have been more appropriate at the end.
3) The Space Between - Easily the worst song on Everyday. It just sounds corny to me.
4) Dreams Of Our Fathers - The verses on this song are fun to sing along with, similar to Blues Traveler. The chorus does leave something to be desired though..
5) So Right - This song is one that you hope a cop doesn't pull you over to.. makes you want to get up and dance, just like Rapunzel. Very catchy, very happy.
6) If I Had It All - A song that has playful, wishful lyrics accompanied by a somewhat dark background of troubling sounds.. a cautious tale of someone who is aware of the evils of success. Definitely worth reading the lyrics.
7) What You Are - A hidden gem.. a mid-eastern feel, similar to Minarets and The Last Stop. The intro is awesome as well. Just try listening to this song without nodding your head.. an infectious beat. Dave continually teases the listener by delaying the rhythm with his thoughtful interludes.
8) Angel - Another sweet song, in the mold of 'Crash Into Me'.
