  1. The band still tends to overplay: Its fussiness undercuts the strongest of the new tracks, "You Never Know," even as the singer reaches for some falsetto salvation.

    The Lillywhite songs are mostly improved here. [#8, p.119]

    Though this is a return to Matthews's more meandering ways, some lessons about conciseness have plainly been learned. [Nov 2002, p.108]

    I love the music of dave matthews and his band. this cd in my opinion is one of his best non-live cds he has.
