- More Details and Credits »
Nearly missing are the charming sax and violin song augmentations. Gone are the tunes that are too long but always find their way back. And gone is some of Matthew's long-faced songwriting personality--now all gussied up in a swirl of quick hits, easy ballads and electric guitar.
JesssicaM.Jun 17, 2001Ballard's a dumbass. He convinced Dave and the band that his cd's audience wasn't as indulgent as those of his live shows- Ballard's a dumbass. He convinced Dave and the band that his cd's audience wasn't as indulgent as those of his live shows- thereby making the songs shorter and robbing them of their wonderful character. I'm sure it will be marvelous live, though. Nevertheless, it's Dave, and I'll never leave him. I give him a 10. … Expand
PeteF.Apr 11, 2002Dave already established himself as an immensely talented musician with beautiful lyrics. Now it has come time to push his border. I think Dave already established himself as an immensely talented musician with beautiful lyrics. Now it has come time to push his border. I think its the challenge of every artist to change their style, and if you can do it sucessfully (like this album) then you can prove yourself in the long run. … Expand

EricT.Oct 27, 2001a little different than the normal dmb, but still as good as hoped.
EdD.Jul 5, 2001He should of stuck with the older type of music that he plays instead of jumping into rock.
JohnOct 4, 2001Everyday has its catchy songs, but this is not one of the best DMB records. I don't understand why Dave felt he needed to go to Glen and Everyday has its catchy songs, but this is not one of the best DMB records. I don't understand why Dave felt he needed to go to Glen and change the sound of the band. Gone are the long solos that we as DMB fans are accustomed to. I really believe Lillywhite sessions would have been their best album if they had released it. That is a true Dave Matthews Band record. I will continue to buy their CD's...i just hope they go back to their original, rocking sound. None of this pop stuff. They don't need more fans. But I'm glad they came out with Everyday. some of the songs are going to be DMB classics. But their old stuff is by far much better. I hope their next CD is like another Lillywhite Sessions. See you later Glen Ballard...go back to your pop bands. … Expand
JeffreyD.Mar 28, 2002Terrible. So uninspired that it makes me ill. Matthews has obviouly been doing too much crack, b/c his brain has obviously melted into goo. Terrible. So uninspired that it makes me ill. Matthews has obviouly been doing too much crack, b/c his brain has obviously melted into goo. He hasn't made a halfway decent record since "Crash", and his latest is by far his worst. Just disgusting.… Expand
