This album is over seven years old and is still fresher than most of the stuff released today. It is pure brilliance with Brother John, The mountains win again and Runaround standing out on and outstanding album. Leave the world of mediocrity that is inhabited by Blue, S7 Club and Steps and dive in the pool electrifying blues rock that is Blues Traveler.

Blues Traveler are one of those bands that deserve a lot more recognition than they get. Aside from having lived the true rock'n'Roll lifestyle with all the ups and downs of a touring band, they also boast some of the most admired rock/blues musicians in America, yet in the UK, few people will have heard of them.
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.

I'm back here to buy another copy of this cd for a friend because he is threatening to steal my copy. John Poppers words mixed with Chan Kinchlas music work perfectly together but it is the execution of the two of them when mixed together with the backing of Brendan Hill & Bob Sheehan that really hits the spot. All the tracks are great but Freedom and The Hook are stuck in my brain and I can't seem to shake them loose.

I heard "Crash Burn" a few years back, and was enthralled by its precision. Seam-less melding of harp, guitar and bass, all propelled forward at astounding pace. Good to be able to re-acquire this gem for a bargain price. Many thanks.

In early 1995, I had just started dating a girl. One evening we were back at her place on the couch becoming, how can one put it, progressively more interested in each other. VH1 was playing in the background.

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.

Bought this CD mainly because of 'Runaround' and found that the rest of the Cd was a great listen. The band certainly deserves a lot more recognition. The songs are definitely upbeat and will certainly make up sit up and listen. It will get better with each listen.
