Musically, 'Four' is very radio-friendly and accessable to just about anybody. The first thing that strikes you is the searingly fast harmonica playing. However, one thing that the band do not do is provide a background for showy 200mph harmonica trills. Each band member has a skill for the improvisational in his own right, and each bandmember gets a share of the spotlight.
Blues Travelers' speciality is getting a feeling of total improvisation on their albums. In a band as tight and as musically talented as this, every song has got an energy that is lacking from most commercial pop/rock outfits. Listening to them play on a CD is like being there live. Finally, the songs are mostly upbeat, with some great lyrics (belted out with a lot of fire and passion), and songs that will get you tapping your feet.
Four features Blues Traveler's biggest hit to date, 'Runaround' which is a great into to the band. The tunes aren't as bluesy and raw as their previous albums, and the song lengths are fairly short (bearing in mind that most Blues Traveler songs are anything from 5 minutes to 20 minutes long!). These criticisms, however, are only in comparison to their other albums, and there is still a lot of music for your money here, blues, rock, folk, funk etc...Every song has got a mixture of at least two of these genres, and is still fantastic to listen to.Read more ›
Good album though..
That was the moment I first heard the song 'Runaround'. I sat up on the couch and started watching the video, which was OK, but the song itself utterly blew me away. My girlfriend became a bit upset with me.
I can give no higher praise to a song that to say I remember the exact moment I first heard it. I went out the next day and bought the album, on which there are several other excellent songs, not least 'The Hook'.
This is a great album. Buy it.
