Product Description

The brand new studio album from DAVE MATTHEWS BAND is an enhanced CD that includes 11 new songs. The enhanced portion of the CD features special access to unreleased material, video footage, performances, and interviews!

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

This is much more complex and satisfying then the Everyday album. The songs reach deeper emotionally while creating music that is both complex and absorbing. There are also some subtle differences from the Lillywhite Sessions songs, mostly good, a few bad. But considering that Dave Matthews Band is simply reiterating quality songs that have already proven themselves on bootlegs and in concert, it's fairly hard to go wrong. So the good news is that nearly all the songs are well done, well layered, and atmospheric. The lyrics are excellent, some of the best I've read by DMB, and are at times quite poignant, as with Grey Street, Bartender, and Grace is Gone. The down side is that some of the songs seems a little restrained and focused on mechanics above emotions, and a few seem rushed, incomplete, and disorganized(You Never Know, Captain). Because the afore mentioned come one after another, the pace lags a tad in the middle portion and seems unsure. However, DMB makes up for it with a great first 3 songs, and a very solid 6-11. Here's a quick overview of each piece:
1)BUSTED STUFF--(7 out of 10)--This is an excellent opener. I'd describe it as a slightly funky blues song that sets the tone for a fairly melancholic cd. Pretty similar to Lillywhite's, but with an o.k. sax outro and a removal of the "silly one" lyrics that he repeated in the original. Solid and well-done.
2)Grey Street--(9 out of 10)--Very, very good song that sounds like a subdued Tripping Billies with better lyrics. Musically very good, lyrically even better, and with a pace the escalates in emotion to the end. Maybe a tad restrained at first, but Dave makes up for it with some great howling at the end. Better than the Lillywhite version.

I admit that I was one of the many who induldged in the bootlegged compilation of "The Summer So Far" aka "The Lillywhite Sessions." I think that disc contains some of the best DMB material ever recorded. It was direction filled with fertile creativity that they dumped for that disappointing EVERYDAY, which I promptly dumped. When BUSTED STUFF was released, I immediately scooped up a copy and listened to it with a raised eyebrow as the album made its way through each track. It wasn't bad, but what happened?
The energy and PASSION was lackluster and the songs smoothed over. Was Dave bored in the studio? GREY STREET, originally such a hard-driving song both musically and lyrically has been melted down into a nice little ditty. This is a song about a woman caught in an abusive relationship looking towards her religion to free here...on Lillywhite, Dave sang it like every word came from the pain and fear inside this woman. Now he sings it like he's narrating the TV movie of the week. He also changed the lyrics....they're not passionate, they're no longer angry for the woman who has found herself in such horrific circumstances. I had the opportunity to see him perform both versions live, and believe me, the new one makes you feel all melancholy inside. That's not what the song should do.
Lillywhite's BARTENDER took me awhile to like, now it's one of my favorites. What sold me was the jam at the end. It's a little shorter on Busted, and again, lacks the dynamic energy that Lillywhite's had. Dave (and all the instruments) emoted raw emotion. It was if you could feel the narrative of the lyrics continuing in the jam. But on Busted it just sounds like a nice little, well-scripted jazz jam.

I've never been a fan of the Dave Matthews Band. I've heard some of their more popular tracks from time to time, but never truly enjoyed what I heard. And, as we all know, 'Where Are You Going' has become a hit on the radio across the country. I liked it immediately, and wondered if I had given DMB a fair shot: I bought the CD on a whim, and was disappointed at first. It just wasn't my style. (Metallica, Godsmack, System of a Down, however, ARE my style.)
But as the days passed, I found myself wondering why this hand't left my stereo. And then when I grabbed my portable CD player on my way to school, I was surprised yet again when I reached for this album. The same happened while on my computer. What was going on? Well, it's simple: this album is amazing, and I now look forward to purchasing more albums by this band.
Here are my thoughts on each track:
1. Busted Stuff (7.5/10) Not my favorite track, and I usually find myself skipping over it. Yet, it's not terrible either.
2. Grey Street (8/10) A faster, stronger song, and may have been better off as the opening track. Not the best on the album, but I listen to it quite often.
3. Where Are You Going (8/10) My favorite at first, but that's always the case with an album you buy for one track. Slower, not as deep as the others, but still great in its own way.
4. You Never Know (7.5/10) I don't listen to this very often; somehow it hasn't quite clicked with me yet.
5. Captain (8.5/10) Slower, more melodic. One of the better, I'd say.
6. Raven (9/10) I've never heard the darker version, but can only assume it's better. I love the lyrics to this one and ranks high on my list of favorites.
7. Grace Is Gone (9.5/10) A song I disliked when first listening to it. It seemed too 'country' for me.
