Let's start to make something clear: Blues Traveler has 2 stages: 1989 - 1999/2000 - today. The first was a jam band that was not afraid to combine rock and ballads with jamming. The 2nd is a mature band, which now seeks to give a touch of bluescountryrock to what they do, leaving some large jammings aside to make way for more orderly riffs, choruses with better production (but not bad) and melodically attractive (pop .) Blues Traveler, in their last 3 albums, has developed their own rock, a style that is now closer to Counting Crows and no longer to Dave Matthews Band, but with the same spirit as always. A couple of days ago they released this album and is very good. A bluescountryrock rich and easy to hear. An album to listen on the road. In a terrace with white wine. No longer the Blues Traveler for a party or hippies. This is a mature band that was not afraid to jamming in the 90s. And now they're not afraid to to rock in the 00s. An amazing band. I recommend this album 100%.

Back in the 90's I eagerly awaited each Blues Traveler release, only to be blown away when I popped the new album into the tape deck or CD player. After Four, although excited for the new release, each album left me wanting more. Over an 18 year period I witnessed the band experiment, grow, try gimmicks, through failure and success.

Suzie Cracks the Whip blows me a way. This new album is tight in every regard. The songs are well-written and true to the Blues Traveler style, yet fresh and interesting. The band's 5-piece lineup settles into that groove which defines all great Rock musicians. Listen for some tight jamming on the bridge of track 3 (devil in the details) and track 6 (things are looking up.) This album transcends BT 1.0 and BT 2.0. It's just Blues Traveler, through and through.

Buy this album for the full spectrum of Blues Traveler: some poppy, light songs; some gritty rock your socks off jams; ballads; love songs; anthems. Masterfully written, recording, and produced, this album only leaves me wanting to hear it again and again.

I am not just saying this because I am an insane fan of BT...I am saying this because I truly, TRULY mean it. This album is outstanding. Without question, the greatest song, in my opinion, is, "Don't Wanna Go" featuring Crystal Bowersox. It's just outstanding.

After their last two albums, I was VERY worried what to expect on this record. I guess that's why I HATE the word, "Expect." I am VERY grateful to BT for bringing their sound back to the fans. No effects...Just music and brilliant music at that.

I love their, "Single," You Don't Have To Love me but I am VERY worried about how it will come across live. Considering Tad has had a mic at every show I've ever seen, yet I've never seen him actually use it...LOL! I'm curious how that will work out. Maybe Popper will use an H1 pedal or something.

Anyway, I am VERY grateful to the boy'z for recording an album that is so musical. Leave effects for those awful bands poisoning the minds of the kids out there...These guys just don't need them.

No offense at all to Tad whom I think is brilliant, but I would love to have heard, "You Don't Have To Love Me" with Bobby playing bass. It seems like his kind of song (Which is probably why I love it so very much).

Missing from this record is your, "Mountain Cry," "Slow Change," "Love and Greed" kind of vibe...Unfortunately, I think those days are behind them...Clearly that was Bobby's influence because it is notably missing. BUT, if you love songs like, "Conquer Me"...This isn't quite the same musical journey but you'll like this record. It is DEFINITELY more mainstream than I've heard them sound BUT like I stated earlier...No effects equals PURE BT and I couldn't be happier!

Some of the best BT lyrics I've heard in several albums. And I love how each song seems to be a slightly different style, but still unmistakably Blues Traveler. I've always loved BT's prosaic lyrics, their ability to tell a story that just happens to rhyme, and this album is a great example of that skill.

Have loved these guys since college (90s). They just keep keepin' on. Twenty years later and this is solid and fresh.

I've been a fan of Blues Traveler Since 1994 when the Album Four came out. I own every studio release, and honestly this is one of their best. I can't imagine anyone saying they were disappointed. It isn't the same as everything they've ever done, but it is very distinctively Blues Traveler's sound. Get the album, you won't be sorry. If you can, buy the version with the bonus disc that includes 6 more songs. There is a legitimate 4 more songs there that you will love.

This is one great album. Not one bad track on this baby. Really feel the soul when john sings. The band is super tight and they have never sounded better. Enjoy this album as much as Four, which brought me to them the first time!

The songs are all uplifting, maybe a bit spacey at moments.. You can tell this is a batch of fresh songs.The tone of the album is good, the tone of the instruments is good as well. I really like " You don't have to love me" and " Recognize My friend". Highly recommend this one!
