It's nice to see the extra DVD bit which comes with the cd, two live songs of DMB in Boulder Colorado!!!
When will the British music scene realise that this is a truly great band to listen to and watch live
Just go and buy it !!!!
Busted Stuff is no exception. Wicked lyrics, haunting melodies: the quintet at their very best. Three songs continually play in my mind, Grey Street, Where Are You Going and Grace Is Gone. As with all DMB albums, however, it won't be long before all his songs are burned into my mind.
For lovers of superlative music, look no further that Busted Stuff, the brand new DMB album. Just get out there and buy it!!
That's a pretty bold statement, but listen to the imagination, emotion and talent which this album is crammed full of and you will surely agree.
In case you're unfamiliar with the band, this is the 5th major-label album by the Dave Matthews Band. The band is fronted by guitarist-vocalist Dave Matthews, who has a voice full of character and an impressive vocal range. Stefan Lessard and Carter Beauford play drums and bass respectively, and both are capable of spectacular moments. Leroi Moore (sax and whistle) and Boyd Tinsley (violin) add a distinctive sound, and on 'Busted Stuff' they play a more harmonic role in addition to the jazzy, flashy solos they are famous for.
On this album the most noticable change is the more unified sound of the band, which leads to the tracks sounding very controlled, without any wasted time on the 55-minutes of music. Despite this, there are plenty of moments for the musicians to show thier talent.
Highlights of the album are Grey Street, a powerful song with a brilliant hook, You Never Know, which is complex yet beautiful, Big Eyed Fish, with profound lyrics, and Bartender, an epic song packed with feeling. There is even a chance on Kit Kat Jam for the band to play some great music without any vocals from Matthews. The music is slightly mellower than on previous albums by the band, but its bittersweet sound makes this a very rewarding CD.
Compared to imagination and creativity like this, most British bands are bland and mundane. 'Busted Stuff' combines the usual great songwriting with playing which alternates between power and beauty. Strongly recommended.
This album is truly excellent and I would recommend it to anyone who likes DMB or anything like them. Emotional lyrics, combined with amazingly skilful music makes a concoction of brilliance which is, Busted Stuff.
