5.0 out of 5 stars They've really hit the groove and make you want to Rock more, 20 Jan 2002
This review is from: Bridge (Audio CD)
I first stumbled across Blues Traveler in the Blues brothers 2000 movie as I'm sure many others did as well and 'Maybe I'm Wrong' was an instant favorite. This is more of the same brilliance that makes you want to get up and move with the music or leaves you drumming your hands to the rhythm n beat. Buy it They're fantastic

4.0 out of 5 stars Something added, something missing...., 7 May 2003
This review is from: Bridge (Audio CD)
It's a brave testament to any band who has had as many misfortunes as Blues Traveler, particularly if their music is brilliant, and even more of a testament to a band who stand up, and carry on when one of their members has died.
'Bridge' is the first Blues Traveler album since the death of Bassist Bobby Sheehan, an extremely talented bassist, who was one of the original lineup for the band. The album is dedicated to him.
With the line-up of another bassist, and keyboardist, the music still continues. Fans should expect the same Blues Traveler trademarks, blistering harmonica solos, all-out jam sessions with a rythmically tight group of musicians, intelligent lyrics, and songs ranging from the surprisingly up-beat toe-tapping tunes, to pensive, melancholy ballads.
As an album in it's own right, Bridge will blow people away. Almost all the songs are radio-friendly, and will appeal on a first listen. However, the album has longevity, and the songs don't sound tiring or repetetive. Each has a different 'feel' and can be added to multiple genres, so it would be unfair to judge the album on one song alone.
In comparison with other Blues Traveler albums however, the addition of a new bassist and keyboardist mean that several times, there is just too much going on. It doesn't sound messy, but overwhelming. The harmonica solos are there, but they are cut back slightly to allow for more 'breathing space', but this is filled in with a ubiquitous and an annoying piano, that sometimes doesn't seem to fit.
It's still a great BT album, and anyone who dares call themself a music lover will need to have at least one BT album - this one is a definite good starter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Band inside my head, 1 Mar 2002
This review is from: Bridge (Audio CD)
Without a shadow of a doubt the best two bands in Universe at the moment are Blues Traveler and Third Eye Blind. This album builds on the magnificence that was Four and Straight on till Morning. John Poppers vocals defy definition and the music flows like water over waterfall. Girl inside my head sums up Blues Traveler, this melodic song draws you in then bashes you over the head with chorus wanting you to shout not sing the song. I gave it five stars because I can't give it six. I have been a fan of BT for nine years now and wish they tour europe!
