Anyone who is on the fence about DMB, or hasn't heard the band since Tim Reynolds joined, then I highly recommend tuning in.

Liked most of the new songs I heard, was working and only got to see the first hour, but got enough out of it to decide to buy the CD in the morning.

Didn't get to see the show last night, but I'm sure FUSE will be running it again (and again, and again.......... ) Anyway good review in this morning's Washington Post. I used to like DMB when the frist came out and certainly they were bit of a "hometown" band being that C'ville is only 75 miles down US29 from Northern Va (where they played a quite a bit before anybody really ever heard of them). But somewhere along the line, they lost direction and I lost interest. It appears the reviewer is somewhat like myself, but thinks the new CD ""Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King" is the best DMB since the mid-90s, and it's the "first time in years they've sounded both interesting and interested.". Certainly going to try and catch an "encore performance" of the DMB Beacon concert, and in addition, probably pick up a copy of this CD.

Dave Matthews Pours Sense Of Purpose Into 'Whiskey'
By Allison Stewart
Tuesday, June 2, 2009

Even before the death of saxophonist LeRoi Moore, the '00s hadn't been kind to the Dave Matthews Band. The band feuded with expensive producers, and its members feuded with each other, all while releasing gloomy solo efforts and glossy, confused-sounding band albums. For the first time, the group's perpetual mellowness began to seem less like genial stoner ennui and more like an actual lack of interest.

The group's new disc, "Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King," is its first since Moore died of complications from an ATV accident last summer. He died during production, and his presence is keenly felt, in the sax solo that opens the disc and in much of the sax work throughout.

"GrooGrux King" is a felicitous tribute: The Dave Matthews Band's best album since the mid-to-late-'90s golden era of "Crash," "Under the Table and Dreaming" and "Before These Crowded Streets," it marks the first time in years they've sounded both interesting and interested. Produced by Rob Cavallo (whose time spent making grim yet carnivallike records with My Chemical Romance seems to be an unexpected influence here), it's a lively, swampy, feral mix of sex and death and fatalism and more sex, almost evenly split between wistful summer songs and groove-intensive New Orleans funeral marches.

Its sad songs sound happy, its happy songs sound sad, and just about every track offers a lesson in Dave Matthews Band fundamentals. There are the jams that don't really jam, like the nervy, potent "Why I Am," with its epitaph/rallying cry of a chorus ("It's the you and the me of the world/Only one way out of the world") and "Shake Me Like a Monkey," an up-tempo, horn-heavy "Crash Into Me" refashioned for Penthouse Forum. The jauntier tracks clock in at around four, virtually-solo-free minutes; they're meant as advertisements for their sure-to-be-jammier live versions.

The ballads and midtempo tracks hit almost as hard: "Dive In" begins like countless other benign DMB songs ("Summer's here to stay/And all those summer games will last forever") before kicking into a global warming allegory that plays to Matthews's longtime love of apocalyptic imagery ("Go down to the shore/Kick off your shoes/Dive in the empty ocean"); "Funny the Way It Is" is a precise, catchy pop song reminiscent of Alanis Morissette's "Ironic."

"GrooGrux King" is more rhythm section-dependent, more bass-heavy, than any of the band's past discs. Drummer Carter Beauford and bassist Stefan Lessard do yeomanlike work, as does guitarist Tim Reynolds, a frequent collaborator on Matthews's solo projects and an increasingly visible presence here. Everybody seems rejuvenated even if nobody seems reborn. And though it's unclear whether "Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King" is to be the last Dave Matthews Band release ever or just the last from DMB Version 1.0, for the moment, at least, it doesn't really matter. It's either a promising new beginning, or a fitting way to go out.

Thanks for sharing that hulu link. I've always liked Dave - especially the earlier stuff - and enjoyed this clip. Also liking what I'm hearing from the new cd!

I tell you what. I got chills when Tim Reynolds did his slide solo. If anyone missed that I highly suggest taking a glimpse of it. Searched for it on you tube this morning but its not up yet. It comes about 4-5 songs into. He was amazing all night. The all around quitar player. Jazz, southern rock, progressive, slide, he was outstanding.! I hope they keep him around a bit longer.

If anyone had any doubts about replacing L.Moore. I think Jeff Coffin proved himself more that qulified last night when Carter and Jeff did the drum/sax duel. WOW.

Fuse is going to rebroadcast Saturday at 7PM est. If you use a DVR, make sure you set it for 3 hours, it ran 30 minutes over the scheduled time. Fuse is also running a series all this week on making the new record. First episode was tonight, very enjoyable. The concert was great, new takes on older tunes, #41 really jammed out with Jeff taking the big sax solo, along w/Carter, as mentioned in a post above. Two Step also really stretched out. Tim adds a huge presence to the overall energy of the band these days. He's a monster player. In the eposide tonight, the entire band talked about how this record has really rejuvinated them all, even prior to LeRoi's passing. Even more so after.

I have it on DVR and watched the first hour or so and thought it was great. I will finish watching it when I get a chance. I'm not a huge DMB fan but I do like them and wouldn't hesitate to see them live. I have seen them three times live including at Central Park when Warren sat in for the most epic version of 'Cortez The Killer' ever.

My daughter's favorite group and from the sound of these reviews I should have DVR'd it.

I heard their new cd and it is a very strong one. I will buy it when it comes out. They are sounding very good with Tim and the new sax player. Plus I liked at least four of the songs on the new cd right out of the gate. There are a few more that will probably grow on me.
