I'm not quite sure I understand the criticisms of the copy protection on this CD. I put the CD into my computer, a screen popped up giving me the option of ripping the album to my computer, I selected this and bingo, within seconds the ripped album was on Windows Media Player (no hanging about for it to convert files to the right format as I believe they are already on the disc converted). I can't see where the other reviewers' problems have arisen!
As for the review - not DMB's best studio effort, I grant you. I preferred Busted Stuff as it had a bit more of a relaxed, free-form feel to it, acoustic jazz-folky and more akin to Crash. Stand Up is a bit too clinical and, dare I say, hip-hop-ish in it's production. Boyd Tinsley's violin also doesn't get enough of a look in, there's more of a jazz-funk feel to this album. Dave's songwriting is not as inspiring as on Under the Table and Dreaming, Crash and Before These Crowded Streets (he has started re-hashing a lot of lyrical themes which is getting a bit annoying) and there is a general blandness to the overall feel of the album when viewed in context with its predecessors. However, this is only when compared to other DMB releases - I still like the more sparse, uncomplicated and funky feel to the drumming (Carter Beauford is a drumming genius but it's good to hear him show a little restraint) and some of the grooves and song hooks are superb, esp. American Baby and the title track.
To sum up - not a great DMB release, if you are a newcomer to the group get Under The Table, Crash, Crowded Streets and a couple of live releases in that order. However, as a generally good CD with some cool sounds and a summery feel it's one to get.
It's also the classiest album cover design I've ever seen

I was worried about this one.. The Dave Matthews Band have continuously bettered themselves with each album. I was beginning to think they couldn't really get any better. Well they have. This is a masterpiece by any standards. No band delivers such consistent musical genius.
This album is perhaps a little more chilled, laid back and lovely than other Dave Matthews Band albums that have a tendancy for intensity. I don't mean to say that the passions gone. It's not left a single note of the genius which is the Dave Matthews Band.
When I first listened to this album, I thought 'it's a little bit boring'. It wasn't at all what I expected. But then I got stuck into American Baby.. and then I got stuck into Smooth Rider when I forgot to press the trackback button.. and then I got stuck into the whole album.
With Stand Up, The Dave Matthews band have explored styles we haven't heard before. They've moved on to blues, jazz and a touch of classical (a very very small but perfect touch).
If this is the first Dave Matthews Band album you ever buy, then you are in for a treat. You'll be hooked in seconds.

I bought this from Amazon and had no problems with protection.

It strikes me that the great thing with DMB is that you dont just get the same thing repackaged as a new album every time. Therefore the possibility of some hit and miss efforts increases.I have all of their albums and find that this one shows that they have the creative genius to just keep coming up with fantastic, original stuff. Overall, this is another gem and it is clear to me that the reason they are not huge over here. Embarrassingly, it seems is that the Great British public prefer the synthesised rubbish trotted out by Louis Walsh and Simon Cowell's talentless robots. A genius like Dave Matthews sadly stands no chance. Says a lot about us really.

I must concur with another reviewer that I did not experience any copyright protection instruments on this CD. I'm actually playing it on my MP3 player right now.

This album was amazing. Even though it is not as adventurous as some of their previous albums, it's a good listen. Some tracks are very political (Everybody Wake Up and Out of My Hands) while others are nostalgic of youth (Dreamgirl and Old Dirt Hill).

The sound is distinctly DMB, and all the songs are strong on their own merits. Louisiana Bayou, Hello Again, American Baby are all classic DMB songs. When I first heard Old Dirt Hill, I didn't realize it was DMB but it made sense that it was their song afterwards.

For one DMB, I'm glad to see they're branching out from Crash and Before These Crowded Streets to an album that is democratic yet their own. It's a good set of tracks, and makes me look forward to their next release.

Don't expect a rock album from this the latest offering from DMB but a rather subtle collection of ballad(ish) like soft tunes, some with a harder edge than others. But hang in there, if there is anything to learn from listening to Dave Matthews and DMB patience is a virtue, and you will be rewarded by repeat listening to this recording. Can't wait to see them for the first time in July in Tampa, Fla.

When I first heard the Dave MAtthews Band, I thought, what's this....? I listened again, and again, and they have not ceased to be my favourtie band for 10 years. So, I know nobody likes change, but calm down and take a good lsiten to this album, it's good, very good. I would not give it 6 out of 5 like most of their other albums, but 5 out of 5 is not bad. I saw Dave Matthews perform some of theses songs solo and they are again, remarkably impressive. So, don;t listen to anyway, just buy it and acquire the sound. But, if you buy this album, you have to buy the rest to see what you're missing out on, because, it is likely to be a lot!!!
