Product Description

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

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.

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.

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!

Alright... Someone has really struck a chord in complaining about Blues Traveler not having enough "blues." One must just question why people can't just enjoy good music...
Anyway, I must be honest and say that some songs are less than enjoyable, but that's all made up by the rest. From the well-known pop hits like "Run-Around" and "Hook" to the less-heard favorites like "The Mountains Win Again" and "Just Wait," Blues Traveler's unique blend of pop and blues makes for an excellent trip, and the addition of the harmonica is a welcome departure from the usual pop scene.

Great Album. Great sound quality with the Black 180 Gram vinyl. Knocking 1 star because this a double LP and really deserves the gatefold treatment... The single sleeve was disappointing. Great colors but 2 records in one sleeve is silly. Also this is the 2nd pressing and not the limited edition.

Everybody remembers this album because of "Run Around" and "Hook." Listen to the whole thing and discover the riffs and grooves on "Crash Burn" and "Stand" or the melodies on "Look Around," "Price to Pay," and "Just Wait."
