New DMB Album!!!
Well, it's finally here and I picked up my copy of the new Dave Matthews Band album, Big Whiskey and the Groo Grux King last week on release date (6/2). Of the 7 studio albums released by this band, none of them are bad, however the big 3 released in the 90's were by far the best in my opinion. In the 2000+ era they have released 3 albums and 2 of the 3 were more "pop" sounding albums which is not DMB's sound in the opinion of many hardcore fans (which obviously includes me). Not bad albums, but not great either...Busted Stuff was an excellent album that came out back in 2002 and was mostly songs written by DMB back in the 90's as well.
With that being said, this new album is by far and away the best album they have released since the 90's. It doesn't sound like the newer pop sounding albums and it doesn't sound like the old stuff either...it has it's own unique style and sound...and it's great. Definitely an album you can listen to and enjoy from start to finish. If you like DMB at all and need some new music, go pick it up....you won't be dissappointed. ~ Pierce Copeland's stamp of approval ;o)
