This could be the worst Dave Matthews Band studio album ever.
J. Wenig
Even this song isn't that good - like someone else said, it sounds like some B-side track that never made it to an original album.
I know how most people say listening to an album "a few times" to let it "grow on you" makes the cd better.

I've been listening to Dave Matthews Band for 15 years now. For awhile, every album they put out got better and better. And then came "Everyday." They moved past their traditional acoustic folk/rock success with a new producer and an edgier sound. I initially hated that album, but grew to like it. With their last album, "Busted Stuff," they began to move back to their roots, only to drift again with the release of "Stand Up."

I don't know where they were going with this album, but it's a much different sound than we've heard in the past. If I didn't recognize (somewhat) the vocals of Dave Matthews, I might even think it's from a different band. Hopefully I'll grow into this album as well, but after several listens since it's release, I've grown tired of trying to find anything worth listening to.

This album sounds like it is filled with tracks that didn't make the cut for "Everyday." It has that over processed feel but lacks the 4 or 5 great tracks that made "Everyday" a decent album. So far I've found two tracks that I don't mind listening to: "Old Dirt Hill" and "American Baby," and even those aren't very good. The problem with the songs on this album is that they're too repetitive and they lack the great lyrics and instrumental riffs that make Dave Matthews Band's music so great. You hear the same chords and lyrics over and over and over. It's almost as if they took the first minute of each song and looped it several more times. I don't even recall hearing Boyd Tinsley's violin at all on this album. They even put two lame "throwaway" tracks on this album so you're only getting 12 songs. They did that on "Before These Crowded Streets" as well but at least that song was decent. These two just sound like a bunch of noise.

Stand Up features a new producer for DMB, Mark Batson. Batson draws experience from working in pop and rap. DMB heralded Batson as the second coming. Truth is, Batson gave absolutely no drive to DMB. DMB just got caught up in their studio life (eating fine food, playing games, smoking joints with Batson outside the studio, etc.). No real work was done on this album. The story behind American Baby pretty much describes the entire album. Batson met with each band member individually. When violinist Boyd Tinsley came in, Batson told him to start playing. When Tinsley was testing his violin, he plucked the riff to American Baby. It was totally unintentional on Tinsley's part, but Batson made a song out of it. This is pretty much the whole album in a nutshell: Batson just looped a bunch of boring riffs over and over. To add insult to injury, Dave could NOT write lyrics for this album. There is absolutely no song that is up to snuff with anything Dave has written before. The only song that comes close is "Hello Again;" however, "Hello Again" was written outside the studio and road tested in 2004. Furthermore, Batson neutered this song by not including Carter's drum solo or the outro. Moreover, speaking of Carter, Batson totally insulted Carter on this record. For those not familiar with Carter Beauford, he is one of the best rock drummers ever. Unfortunately, Batson just looped the drums over and over and turned Carter into a drum machine. Which brings me to an important point, don't listen to DMB's lies about this album. In the hype leading up to the album, they said, "this new album will be built around Carter." Hahah, sure DMB. They will also contend that this is their best album in some of their promotional material. However, that's also bullox.Read more ›

There are two HUGE reasons not to buy this album:

(1) First, this CD is copy-protected. And this is no ordinary protection. Indeed, the 'digital keys' you need from SUNNCOMM don't even download to my computer (and may not to yours either)...and no one at SUNNCOMM or the Dave Matthews Band website will help, despite several emails. Thus, you must face that fact that you may ONLY be able to play this CD in a CD-Player! And before you even think of using it on your PC, I warn you to read what people say about SUNNCOMM and its software. I wish I never had bought this album,

(2) Second, this is not Dave Matthews best attempt. Indeed, on first listen, it is his worst album ever. I agree with the review on that this album may be the one where you say to yourself...I may never buy another DMB album ever again, as it is clear the best albums are already out there.

So...don't buy this album...stand up to SUNNCOMM and its insane anti-piracy software.

Say no to DMB for creating his worst album far.

Yep, I bought all major Dave Matthews Band CDs releases. Why? Because I like them. Because they're CDs are usually worth it. Now they decided to implement DRM. First off, they sell well. Secondly, they are a touring band. So why implement DRM?

I guess this is the digital equivalent of human waste from a tour bus, and consumers are the boat passengers. Basically, to play this on a PC machine, you need to install a product. The product has been known to crash machines. Gee, am I going to install it?

If you have autorun on, it actually tries to install itself automatically. If I'm not mistaken, isn't that Spyware?

Now I like to listen to CDs in my office on my windows machine. Am I going to install an unverified outside product on my machine connected to my employer's internal network? No, I'm not an idiot. Nor should you. Nor should anyone. It's dangerous. If it's not open source nor made by a reputable software organization, it may contain exploits or bugs that can open up your system, and your internal network to hackers. So unless your name is Paris Hilton and don't mind being hacked, don't do it.

So, basically, it is unplayable, legally, on a normal PCs legally without compromising your system. Yep, I can now officially state that it is officially easier to download it illegally and burn it to a CD, than be a sucker like me and pay retail price. It shows the music industry has a little bit of greed, mixed with a whole lot of stupidity. I guess people like me, who respect copyrights, actually have to become hackers to enjoy legitimately paid music.

Thanks Dave Matthews Band!

Oh yeah, I've heard, though cannot confirm, that if you have a windows machine, and have an iPod, they are not compatible either.
