I really only have one DMB cd and its Central Park Live recording, though i have heard a lot of his work on the radio. I was a bit skeptical being that the reviews I’ve read along the way have been largely negative but I have to say that I disagree after hearing it a few times.

This cd has a little something for everybody from the slower more quiet vibe of “]steady as we go”] to a throwback of his previous track “]Stay”] in “]Stand Up”]. To best describe this cd two words come to mind; Coffeehouse Jam. I really feel that it’s moving in the right direction for DMB being that its unlike what they’ve done in the past. His vocals in “]Stolen Away”] are a bit restrained I thought while the “]Bayou”] gives you a little more grunge to his voice.

I think he’s thrown it out there maybe because he’s tired of repeating himself and wanted to throw the fan base a little curve. Whatever the reason I’ll keep this one on heavy rotation for a while.
