Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This fourth album from the New York's Blues Traveler finally brought their harmonica-based blues riffs into the public eye. Indeed, "Run-Around" spent nearly a year on the Billboard singles chart. Harpman/vocalist John Popper moves easily between uptempo, rock-based tracks like "Stand" and "Crash Burn." The hidden gem here, however, is the love-struck ballad "Just Wait." Often categorized with post-Dead jam acts such as Phish, BT isn't immune from performance excesses. But when it comes to recording, they keep it (mostly) concise and always interesting. If you've heard the name and want to know what all the hoopla is about, Four is a great starting point. --Alexandra Russell

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good 90's CD January 27, 1999
Format:Audio CD
If I was to name quality bands that started making music in the 1990's, I would most likely have fingers left on at least one hand. Blues Traveler is one of the those bands that makes the grade. Four definitely got them in the public eye and deservedly so. The energy is very high and Johnny Popper's Harmonica playing is excellent and as a rule I don't like harmonicas in music. The sounds like that come out of that Harp are incredible. Although the songs stick to a somewhat repetitive pattern, overall they are fairly catchy especially Hook, Stand, Runaround, Price To Pay, and Look Around. A very worthy purchase indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 90's cd May 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The last time I heard this CD was nearly 10 years ago and coming into possession of it once again last month, it put quite a smile on my face.

This is a great example of 90's rock before it went completely corporate. John Popper's harmonica playing is wicked and his lyrics remind me of Meatloaf.

I don't know about anyone else but it takes alot for me to like an entire cd and "Four" makes the cut. I can listen to it from start to finish and enjoy it more each time. And I can't help but sing to the cd, especially getting a kick out of the bridge to "Hook"-

"Suck it in suck it in suck it in

If you're Rin Tin Tin or Anne Boleyn

Make a desperate move or else you'll win

And then begin

To see

What you're doing to me this MTV is not for free

It's so PC it's killing me

So desperately I sing to thee

Of love

Sure but also rage and hate and pain and fear of self

And I can't keep these feelings on the shelf

I've tried well no in fact I lied

Could be financial suicide but I've got too much pride itself

To hide or slide

I'll do as I'll decide and let it ride until I've died

And only then shall I abide this tide

Of catchy little tunes

Of hip three minute ditties

I wanna bust all your balloons

I wanna burn all of your cities

To the ground I've found

I will not mess around

Unless I play then hey

I will go on all day hear what I say

I have a prayer to pray

That's really all this was

And when I'm feeling stuck and need a buck

I don't rely on luck because..."

Also, check out the bridge to "Stand." Nice and mellow and Popper's voice rocks even more.

To the ever growing list of record company creations - This is what you call M U S I C.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best rock album of the 90's June 12, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Sure, this is Blues Traveler's most commercial effort, but that's just because of the success of Run-Around. Musically, Four is no glossier or more commercial than their previous three albums. Prior to Four, Blues Traveler had a following on the college rock circuit, built by their incessant touring throughout the late 80's and early 90's. It wasn't until Run-Around broke that the mainstream took notice of John, Chan, Bob (RIP) and Brendan. I love all of Blues Traveler's albums, but I would have to say that Four is their best. Commercial effort or not, I love this album. The band truly perfected their sound on this album. It has rockers ("Stand", "Crash Burn"), it has ballads ("Look Around", "Just Wait") and a whole lot of awesome harmonica soloing. The whole band is great. Chan Kinchla's guitar is great wether pounding out rock riffs or just simple rhythm strumming. The late Bobby Sheehan was a great bassist, he will truly be missed.
This is such a great album. Everyone should own this. Don't just listen to it for the hits ("Run-Around" and "Hook"), it's great from start to finish. Track number 3, "Look Around" is one of the greatest ballads I think I've ever heard. A great vocal performance by John Popper, meaningful lyrics, and a great guitar solo (also played by Popper).
Four is easily one of the 90's best rock albums, up there with Automatic For The People and Shake Your Money Maker. Even if you don't like Blues Traveler, buy this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars How could your resist loving this album? December 18, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is one of two Blues Traveler CD's that i own. Now most of you are going, "oh yeah so what does he know." Well i will tell you what i believe, not what i know. And that is, that this is an awesome album. I baught their first CD and i was one of the people that loved, "But Anyway." Care free, full of energy, and of all things, one of the best harmonica solo's i have ever heard. In 1994 everyone was pretty much still obsessed with Grunge. And them comes along this album. My opinion on this, is that it was very well made. For Blue's fans this album maybe a slightly dissapointing if you loved Blues Travelers early work. But if you just want to listen to good quality Blues with a harder edge, this is your Album. John Popper sings harder than ever, and with raw emotion. In some tracks its almost as if he is about to scream. The lyrics are well exspressed, you can really feel the emotion when he sings. If he wants you to dance.. you dance, if he wants you to take his advice.. you take it, and if he wants you to just pure rock out, you will be head bangings. Scary huh? That is the main reason why i give this 5 stars. Cus this is pure raw music. Guitar Solos, Harmonica Solos, and Bass Solos! What more could you ask for? And my favourite part is the guitars. Wether they are funky, Bluesy, Heavy, and even some hints of distortion. Any rock fan will truley appreciate, and grow to love this album. Stand Out Tracks on this album are; ("Run Around") which is a fast pased track with is full of energy and passion. ("Stand") Which is a funky blues song. Then you have ("Look Around"), a great song about relationships with a wonderful guitar solo midway through. And those are just the first 3 tracks. Read more ›

Frontman John Popper has a plaintive voice that is not without conviction, and of course his blues harp is the best in the business. Read more
